Burgers on the Grill, Anyone?

Since we’re in the midst of summer grilling season, let’s talk about burgers!  Did you know that beef is the highest carbon footprint of all the food choices?  This chart from the University of Michigan compares servings of a variety of foods, and you can see that beef is more than four times worse that pork or poultry options in terms of its carbon impact.


Luckily, there are many alternatives to consider for your summer grilling menu.  The lowest carbon footprint would undoubtedly be a veggie burger.  If you prefer meat on the grill, a grilled chicken breast or salmon burger can provide a refreshing change of pace.

  Click here for a few recipes for any foodies out there that would like to try some creative ways to serve poultry burger alternatives.  Your guests will appreciate that you put a little extra effort into creating something special for them!  Many studies have shown red meat to be harmful in terms of the health impacts too, so why not try a few alternatives on your grill this summer.  You won’t be sorry, and you might even find you feel better and enjoy them more!

Happy Summer!
