Powerhouse Burger: Millet, Sweet Potatoes, and Kale

Burgers ‘n Wings.  Wait, stop right there, burgers AND wings?  How is that eating whole?!  I’ve healthafied the everyday American junk food.  These powerhouse burgers contain millet, sweet potatoes, and kale.

The sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin C, folate, calcium, potassium, and beta-carotene.  In fact, the vitamin C from the sweet potatoes helps your body absorb the non-heme iron in the kale.  Did you know there are two kinds of iron? Iron that is plant-sourced (from leafy greens, beans for example) is non-heme, so fellow plant-based eaters listen up: it is important to pair your leafy greens with a source of vitamin C (sweet peppers, tomatoes, grapefruit juice, oranges, strawberries for example).  It’s simple: your body absorbs iron better when paired with vitamin C (http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/iron.php).

Millet isn’t just for the birds; it’s a little powerhouse seed on it’s own!  It’s a good source of fiber, manganese, phosphorus, tryptophan, and protein (interested in learning more? check out all the benefits here).  See, Burgers ‘N Wings: Healthafied!

Millet is also delicious as a breakfast cereal! labeled2 Continue reading
