GIRLS BITE OUT
Summer's almost here. Time to grill up some burgers. But before you inhale
a fatty patty, or (eeeks!) avoid eating burgers altogether, check out these six
ROCKIN' burger picks from HG...
GARDENBURGER BLACK BEAN CHIPOTLE VEGGIE BURGER
(1 patty: 80 calories, 2.5g fat, 250mg sodium, 13g carbs, 5g fiber, 1g sugars,
5g protein = 1 Point)
You know we love almost all of Gardenburger's veggie patties, but this Black
Bean Chipotle burger is our FAVORITE of all (yep, it even beats their kickin'
Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil burger!). We love it so much, we created a special
burrito recipe exclusively for this patty (now that's love). The burger's got
black beans, corn, onions and more, so grill one up, serve with salsa 'n low-
fat cheese, and you've got yourself a Mexican burger fiesta. Olé!
JENNIE-O LEAN TURKEY PATTIES
(1 patty: 160 calories, 8g fat, 550mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars,
22g protein = 4 Points)
We LOVE Jennie-O's lean ground turkey burgers because they taste
awesome and have just 160 calories and 8g of fat per serving. (Be careful
not to confuse 'em with J-O's regular turkey burger patties, which have way
more fat and calories.) They're also pre-formed into individual patties, which
means you don't have to touch all that gross, squishy raw meat, and you
don't run the risk of making your burgers bigger than the given serving size
(which is large, at around 4 ounces!). Jennie-O? O-yeah! HG Turkey Burger
Warning: Not all turkey burgers are calorie-friendly. Read labels carefully.
Seek these out in the fresh-meat section of the supermarket.
AMY'S CALIFORNIA VEGGIE BURGER
(1 patty: 140 calories, 5g fat, 430mg sodium, 19g carbs, 4g fiber, 2g sugars,
6g protein = 2 Points)
We looooove pretty much anything and everything that pops out of the
Amy's kitchen (especially their Mexican Tamale Pie and Chunky Tomato
Bisque, but we digress). Today we're raving about their California Veggie
Burger. It ROCKS! Why? Because not only is it packed with grains & veggies,
it also has crushed walnuts and garlic in it! Yum!!! Click here to find Amy's
goodies in your area.
BOCA ORIGINAL MEATLESS BURGER
(1 patty: 70 calories, 0.5g fat, 280mg sodium, 6g carbs, 4g fiber, 0g sugars,
13g protein = 1 Point)
Sometimes you just can't beat the original. Boca's Original soy patties taste
great grilled on the BBQ, cooked in a pan, or zapped in the microwave. And
they contain only 70 calories and a half-gram of fat each. Even better,
they've got an impressive 4 grams of fiber and 13 grams of protein per
patty. If you like meaty-tasting vegetarian burgers, this one's for you.
OMEGA FOODS SALMON BURGER
(1 patty: 100 calories, 2g fat, 150mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars,
18g protein = 2 Points)
You've heard of turkey burgers. You've heard of veggie burgers. But have
you heard of fish burgers?! Well if you haven't, you're missing out -- bigtime.
The fine folks at Omega Foods are the masterminds behind a line of
delicious, low-calorie, low-fat seafood burgers. Their lineup also includes
Tuna Burgers (90 calories and 0.5g fat a patty), Shrimp Burgers (64 calories
and 0.8g fat each), and Mahi Mahi Burgers (70 calories and 0.5g fat a patty) -
- but the Salmon ones are our favorite. All of these sensational seafood
burgers are super-easy to prepare and contain lots of protein (14 - 18 grams
per patty), but the Salmon ones also serve up a gram of healthy Omega-3
fatty acids each.
MORNINGSTAR FARMS PHILLY CHEESE STEAK BURGER
(1 patty: 120 calories, 6g fat, 400mg sodium, 6g carbs, 3g fiber, 2g sugars,
10g protein = 2 Points)
This is perhaps the most decadent veggie burger ever. It's so good, in fact,
that when you eat this yummy cheese-infused burger, you feel like you're
pigging out on the most delicious Philly Cheesesteak. The best part? You are
SO not. It's a tad high in fat for a soy patty, but it's head-explodingly good,
so get over it! Track 'em down, STAT!
