Carrot Green & Lemon Turkey Burger


carrotandlemongreenturkeyburger

If you like a little bitter bite to your food- you’ll love this turkey burger. It’s a fantastic, healthy, meal prep option and super duper sustainable. I love finding ways to use my carrot & radish greens. Something about using the whole vegetable makes me feel better, and I like buying my carrot bunches with the greens, I like my carrots just plucked from the earth. Speaking of… I’m really excited, for my own baby carrots are growing and growing and soon I’ll have my own to pick.

I feel really strongly about how super markets these days like to clean, shine and package food. It’s so far removed from where it comes from- it almost white washes away all the work, the struggle it took to get there. Farming is hard work, it takes physical labor. Someone picked those vegetables, someone had to nurture, feed and then slaughter that animal. It’s sounds terrible, but it’s the truth & it’s okay. It’s the food chain, the circle of life. If we are aware and remember that, each time we buy food, prepare it… maybe we would all be a little more conscious of where we buy from, what we eat etc.

Dang, sorry for the heavy rant… but these things run through my little head a lot…
