Protein Power: Cluck n' Moo Burgers for Your Training Table this Fall

Cluck n Moo Burgers have 52% Less Fat than standard all beef burgers.
September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day! If you are cross training, you may want to celebrate with a lower in saturated fat alternative. Cluck n' Moo Burgers give you all the taste of an all beef pattie but without: Antibiotics or Hormones, artificial ingredients or additives and all that beef-fat,

Cluck n Moo Burgers lower your fat intake by adding lean chicken to the beef. I make a similar pattie with turkey and beef. This is just as delicious. I sprinkled the Cluck n Moo Burger with a little roasted garlic and Applewood Rub. I drizzle a bit of coconut oil on top and add a few peppers and onion slices to the grill. Any excess oil easily drains off.

You get four 1/4 pound burgers per package.

Cook until thoroughly done in the middle as this has poultry added and requires a longer cooking time. Go Paleo and serve on a salad or the I did here on whole wheat toast.

Either way, these are delicious and a great source of lean protein and iron with 34% less calories than your average beef burger.

New Cluck n Moo Burgers with KALE! The same lean and delicious Beef & Chicken burger now with nutritious kale. Kale is rich in vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants while helping to correct acidosis (see my article on Kale Juice delivered to your door by Chef V).

Cluck n Moo Burgers with Kale
I couldn't imagine these burgers being made any better but these are really delicious. The Kale is in tiny pieces and tastes more like parsley in the pattie.

See the bits of kale in the pattie?
So no worries about getting a hard to chew stalk in your mouth. These are really done right and due to the addition of kale, gives you 4% of your Vitamin A and 8% of your Vitamin C requirements for the day. Just like the regular Cluck n Moo, each burger gives you a whopping 21 grams of protein. Depending on your weight, you should get at least that equivalent in grams of protein each day. That would mean a 125 lb woman should eat roughly 125 grams of protein a day. A Cluck n Moo burger would give your about 1/5th of that requirement. Due to the beef in these burgers, you also get a much needed 10% of your iron supply. See all the delicious varieties at Clucknmooburger.com
