Tuna Burgers

Thursday, April 22, 2010



If you enjoy burgers, there's no reason to stop eating it just because you want to stay healthy. The key idea is to choose a healthier burger. Lean beef and turkey work well, but for variety, hold the bacon. Tuna burgers can be just as satisfying and they are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins as well. Try Tyler Florence's tuna burgers the next time you have a craving.
