Listen up, folks. It's time we have a chat.
Burgers are a hundred percent breakfast food! Yes, you heard me right.
I know you're thinking it's a loony babble, but trust me it's not. What makes you flinch from having a burger in the morning is nothing but a social norm.
It's time that burgers break free from these shackles.
What is the Actual Deal with a Burger?
It's nothing but a fancy name for a sandwich!
You use round bun instead of a bagel or an English muffin or flat white bread to make a sandwich, and voila! What you get is a burger!
An ideal American breakfast consists of egg & cheese sandwiches and bacon and breakfast sausages or stacks of syrup-laced pancakes or a bowl of cereals with milk.
So now tell me, what's wrong if a burger takes its place?
It's got all the proteins and calories you need from the meat and cheese. And some fibers too from the bread, for a satisfactory poop!
Plus, you get some veggies like lettuce and onions and tomatoes from a burger.
So, if you think a cheese and sausage breakfast with greasy bacon is healthier than your regular burger, you are nothing but a hypocrite! (Going little harsh?)
Cereals have always been considered a very healthy breakfast option. Our parents would cram us up with cereals and send us off to school. But boy, were they wrong!
Research says that most of the breakfast cereals available today are grossly unhealthy. Even the brands which boast whole grains and little amount of sugar, fall in the calorie-dense, nutrient-poor end of the spectrum.
Some researchers even say that a cup of granola has the same amount of calories as that of a MacDonald Cheeseburger!
Recent findings have also suggested that it's not the dietary fats, but the extra calories we consume, that make us obese. Now, let's face it, who's the winner here!
Well, now I'm sure you feel bad for our good old buddy, Burger.
It has been labeled as bad and unhealthy for ages. But it turns out that conventionally "healthy" foods are no different!
Some doctors say that breakfast is "The King of All Meals". That is, we should consume the maximum amount of calories during breakfast and eat foods with limited calories during the course of the day.
Even this dictum validates having a burger for breakfast.
If you have to have a burger, why not have it in the morning, instead of for dinner and give your body a chance to process it completely! In this way, it won't even influence your body much.
Some progressive restaurants like, Burger King is already joining the tread. Now you don't have to wait till 10 AM to enjoy any of their delicious burgers.
But certainly, a huge double or triple-decker hamburger is not a healthy choice, any time of the day, but a homemade burger with lean meat, veggies and a reasonable amount of cheese-- why not!
