Happy New Year! Our resolution is to eat better and feel better. Making better-for-you choices during can be a challenge, so here’s the rundown on the burgers that deliver great taste and even better nutrition.

Salmon Burgers

Choosing salmon for a meal is a healthy way to get as many nutrients as possible. As the primary ingredient in this dish, salmon provides most of the nutrients. In addition to providing at least half your daily protein, it contains more than 20 percent of your daily calcium and B vitamin requirements. As well as being heart-healthy, this fish is also a healthy source of essential fatty acids. Salmon patties are made with salmon, eggs, and breadcrumbs. The following seasonings are favorites: onions, paprika, garlic powder, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and soy sauce. Mayonnaise is often used to help bind the ingredients and add moisture. 

Turkey Burgers

High protein content is one of the key benefits of turkey burgers. It depends on which type of turkey burger you choose to consume how many calories it provides. A 93 percent lean burger contains 176 calories in a 3-ounce serving, while a fat-free turkey burger contains just under 120 calories with the same amount of protein. There are plenty of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in lean turkey burgers without adding an excessive amount of calories. 

Veggie Burgers

Plant-based burgers generally contain fewer calories per gram than meat burgers since they are free of saturated and trans fats. The plant-based diet helps people maintain a healthy weight and has fewer calories, fat, and cholesterol.
