3 Healthy Benefits of Burgers
Sometimes, in our current era of health-consciousness, we fail to give certain foods a chance when they may be pretty good for us. Coastal Kitchen thinks burgers are one of those overly maligned foods. If you examine closely, you’ll discover some surprising health benefits to enjoying a savory burger.
What Are 3 Healthy Benefits of Burgers?
1. Lots of Iron
Iron does so much to promote healthy digestion and overall immune system function. Burgers made from lean meat (90% lean) contain roughly 3 milligrams of iron. That’s a significant portion of the recommended daily intake of iron for men (8 milligrams) and women (18 milligrams).
2. Vitamin B-12: The Energy Vitamin
Do you need energy? Of course, you do. Burgers provide exactly that because beef has tons of Vitamin B-12, the veritable energy vitamin. You don’t want to find yourself deficient in B-12 because then you run the risk of red blood cell deterioration. If that happens, you may encounter several unwelcome health consequences like fatigue, hyperthyroidism, cognitive decline, and infertility. Grab a burger at Coastal Kitchen, boost your energy, and maybe get a souvenir shirt AND free drink while you’re at it.
3. Packed with Protein
Red meat is well known for both iron and protein. Protein is vital for healthy cell growth and muscle development. Most restaurants serve burgers that account for more than half the daily recommendation for protein (more than 20 grams of protein). All that’s left for you to do is choose the healthiest toppings and sides to accompany all that savory, high-protein beef. Coastal Kitchen recommends adding avocado! If you do it right, you can get a great proportion of the critical macronutrients from a satiating, tasty burger.
