Sriracha Burger

 

Sriracha Burger
 
If you've been following my recipes for awhile now you'll know that I don't tend to eat a lot of meat in general. I might have fish once or twice a week, but beef and chicken very rarely. But every now and then I start to crave some red meat. I always take this as a sign that my body really needs it. So I'll treat myself to some organic grass fed beef and make a little 3oz burger. Now since I don't cook burgers very often I wasn't sure what I should season it with. But since I have become obsessed with Sriracha sauce I thought I would give that a try. It was delicious and so simple to do for the novice meat eater. This is the perfect Paleo meal if you are hopping on the no grain train. With a large side of brussels sprouts and some avocado on the side, I was stuffed and not missing the burger bun at all. This is an easy recipe to make for one or for a family, adjust the ingredient size as you see fit. And if you have any special burger seasonings you love please feel free to share in the comments below.

Notes
Red meat is definitely something that you want to eat in moderation, however there are some great health benefits. It is a rich source of vitamin B-12 and vitamin D, two nutrients that many people are deficient in. Red meat is also one of your best sources of iron, in a form that is easily converted and utilized by the body.


Brussels sprouts may not be everyones favorite vegetable, but when cooked right they can be delicious. They also happen to have amazing health benefits. There is a huge correlation between brussels sprouts and cancer prevention. They help to detox cancer causing substances from the body. Brussels sprouts are also high in Vitamins A, C, and E which help support the immune system. They help to combat chronic oxidative stress in the body and have an anti-inflammatory effect. Current research is also proving brussels sprouts as proving helpful in digestive disorders by protecting the stomach lining and preventing the overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the gut.


In my opinion Avocado’s might just be one of the healthiest foods you can eat. One avocado gives you an ample serving of fiber, protein, and fat. In particular they contain all of your good healthy fats that help lower the bad cholesterol in your body. And they also contain high levels of nutrients such as Folate and Lutein, which helps to support eye health. Avocados lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of stroke. They bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function. The fiber content promotes healthy digestion. They are known for a wide variety of anti-inflammatory benefits due to its high nutrient content. This makes it a great immune booster and cancer fighter. Overall one of the best foods you can eat, hands down!
