Make sure you buy ground turkey breast meat, because if you don’t, it may have as much or even more fat and calories than good lean ground beef. You may like to mix the ground turkey and lean ground beef together to make a flavorful combination.
Most people I know want to eat turkey burgers because they are lower in fat than ground beef. The problem is that ground turkey is a drier the beef, that’s because it doesn’t have all the fat. But the fat is where all the flavor comes from. So the dilemma is, do I want to something is healthy but tastes dry and maybe even gross. Or do I want to eat something that is full of fat but tastes delicious?
The solution is to eat something that has a lot of added flavor and other ingredients that makes it more moist and flavorful. That’s where these clean eating turkey burgers recipes below come in. These recipes all change a turkey burger from dry and bland to a burger that is flavorful and yummy delicious. So I have proven that you can have your cake and eat it too.

You probably know that regular white flour is not Clean Eating but whole wheat flour is. Some of these recipes say to use a bun of some sort, a lot don’t specify. Some say to use whole wheat. Some don’t have buns at all. My advice is to just keep in mind that you need to make sure you use a whole wheat bun or a bun made with some other kind of flour, such as Spelt or Einkorn flour. Also, make sure the bun recipe you use does not use refined sugar or vegetable oil. Just making sure you understand that. I’m sure you do if you have been eating a Clean diet for some time, but I just want to make sure this is clear, especially to those who are new to the clean eating lifestyle.
