The typical burger we’ve grown accustomed to is so loaded with calories and weird saturated fats that are then dressed with homogenized, over-processed and fatty toppings, our hearts stop just thinking about it. How can we enjoy these ever so palatable dishes without packing on the pounds and clogging our arteries? We’re here to show you how to make leaner, friendlier burgers, discussing the importance of grassfed beef which respects a cow’s natural inclination to eat grass versus cows being fed soy and corn which makes them unhealthy and supports unsustainable practices. Just think of it this way, the nicer we are to the things that allow us to have burgers, like the cows and the earth, the longer we have to enjoy them! Getting back on track, we’ll show you alternative methods of producing fries using nutritious oils and natural salt that taste so good and make you feel better, how to make cola using real ingredients and milkshakes that satisfy your cravings and your needs. We’ll also cover other kinds of meat you can use to make tasty burgers and other elements to round out and perfect the flavors! Baby, can’t you see? There’s a whole future of divine burgers and its loyal comrades of fries and cola and milkshakes waiting for you!
