Nashville, Ark. – Memorial Day is the official kick-off to summer and many people
will be firing up the grill, if they haven’t done so already. Hamburgers are a favorite
cookout food. Americans consume approximately 14 billion of them every year. They
are such a big part of our society that it’s impossible to think of American food
without thinking of hamburgers.
They have foods from four of the five food groups shown on MyPlate, the guide to healthy
eating. They are tasty, economical, convenient and even nutritious. Lean ground beef
actually provides 10 essential nutrients including protein, B vitamins, iron and zinc
with 7.6 grams of fat and 139 calories. Regular ground beef contains the same nutrients,
but has a higher fat content of 10.6 grams.
If you are watching your fat intake, but still want to enjoy a delicious burger this
holiday, here are some tips for keeping it lean:
Once cooked, remove the patties to a large, clean plate lined with 3 layers of paper
towels. Let stand one minute. Turn over after 30 seconds, and blot again. This helps
remove extra fat. Serve on your bun of choice.
Whole-wheat buns have more fiber, less fat and calories than traditional white buns.
Be sure to read the nutrition facts label to determine which is the best choice for
you. USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend having half your grains coming from whole grains.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day this weekend! Remember the men and women who fought
and died preserving our freedoms. For more information on MyPlate, the Dietary Guidelines
or other general nutrition information, contact the Howard County Extension Office
at 870-845-7517 or visit our office located on the second floor of the courthouse.

Want to “spice it up” this Memorial Day? This burger can be as hot or mild as you
want. This recipe was shared by the Arkansas Beef Council. It makes a great gourmet
