Whole Foods Study September 16

For two weeks, I am going to try to make better food choices, even though we are on a tight budget and I consider myself above average in food knowledge.

This is September 16, day 2.

We made grilled bison burgers for dinner. Now, I am not sure if they count as whole food, but they do have higher nutrients and less fat when compared to beef.

The big difference was in the way I made them.

The key points: Ground oats instead of bread crumbs, seasonings without MSG, almond milk instead of cow's milk, home-made pickles instead of mayonnaise.

Key findings: Store-bought bread crumbs might have MSG and corn syrup and the same might apply to seasoning mixes.

Want to know the details of my disturbing finds on labels and the whole recipe? Read my full post.

We use almond milk and burgers are usually turkey burgers.
