Salmon as an Alternative to Beef Burger

Your out with friends, enjoying the day, and need to get something to eat. On the menu you see something called salmon burger but are not exactly sure what it is. A salmon burger is a healthy alternative to beef burgers and is made from chipped salmon mixed with vegetables. The burger is lean and contains a lot of Omega 3s under a few hundred calories.

Omega 3s are healthy fats that reduce the risk of heart disease, depression, dementia, and arthritis. It can also help you increase your attention and reduce your risk of cancer. Most people don't consume enough Omega 3s in their diet leading to a variety of healthy problems.

Those problems could be behavioral and health associated. For example, symptoms of ADHD and depression are reduced with adequate consumption of Omega 3s. The same can be said for cholesterol and the nervous system

As an alternative it provides as much as 20 grams of protein when compared to 18 grams of protein for a beef burger. You can eat your muscle building blocks without having to overkill on the calories.

Despite its benefits, you will also enjoy the juicy taste that is succulent and light in the stomach. Offer with anything from fries to salad. Try sweet potato fries to keep the health theme going. Because it is a meaty fish it goes down well with a white wine like Pinot Gris or Red like Merlot.
