I’m working up an appetite just looking at this infographic. It doesn’t take much to convince me to go get a cheeseburger. In fact, as a kid, it was one of the few things I ate. One of my greatest food achievements is downing a 4-patty Five Guys burger, it was rough. Despite how cool I thought I was in that moment, I will never surpass this guy when it comes to burgers.
Not too many surprises on this infographic. Lots of fat, lots of sodium, and lots of calories in general. But don’t let this infographic push you away from the joy of burgers. There are plenty of healthier options when it comes to making burgers. Buying lean meat from the store is a good starting point, then add fresh veggies and avocado to pack in some vitamins and antioxidants. If you’re not a cook, lots of trendy drive thru burger places are popping up that use organic grass-fed beef, and I must say I notice a difference. Not only do I feel better after eating them, I also prefer the taste of a healthy burger.
So enough lecturing about burgers. Enjoy today’s infographic, and give us some pointers on your favorite burgers and where to get them. [Via]482
