I recently discovered Bell & Evans Chicken Burgers which are a great option if you need to grab a quick lunch. These burgers are made from premium chicken… raised without antibiotics, chemical additives or preservatives, air chilled for freshness and contain no retained water to dilute the flavor. The only ingredients are chicken, salt and pepper. I bought a box of these (there are 4 in a box) and cooked all of them at once. My mom came over for lunch, so we each had one and then I saved the other two in the fridge to grab at a later time. You can either prepare these burgers on a skillet or a grill. If you don’t have time during the week, you can cook them all during the weekend or whenever you have 10 minutes of free time and keep them in the fridge for later use.
After I cooked the burgers I put them on a piece of bibb lettuce with organic tomato, organic bacon and Annie’s Organic Honey Mustard. The only ingredients in Annie’s Honey Mustard are: Organic Mustard (Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic Yellow Mustard Seed, Salt), Organic Sugar, Organic Honey, Organic Cinnamon. This product is made with no synthetic pesticides/fertilizers, antibiotics, hormones, GMOs or radiation. It is also gluten free.
When eating bacon, one thing to steer clear of is sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate, which is found in a lot of lunch meats, bacon, sausage, and hot dogs. It is a salt that helps to prevent bacterial cultivation of foods and makes them appear fresh. It can lead to formation of cancer-causing molecules that can result in tumor formation. Both sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate have been linked to significantly increasing the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, so be sure to choose only uncured meat products made without nitrates, and preferably from grass-fed sources (http://www.organicconsumers.org/foodsafety/processedmeat050305.cfm).
If you don’t eat pork, these wraps would be delicious without it. Goes great with a side of melon!
