I learned two things from my subscription to Men’s Health Magazine, when I read it during the late 1990s:
1. Reading about how to do exercises is significantly less effective than actually doing the exercises.
2. How to be a better lover.
So I hope when Hardee’s teamed up with Men’s Health Magazine to create their new line of turkey burger, they also learned how to be a better lover.
The turkey burgers come in three varieties: Original, BBQ Ranch or Mushroom & Swiss. All three burgers come with a thick, charbroiled turkey patty and a toasted wheat bun. The Original Turkey Burger also contains red onions, tomato, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, mayo, and dill pickles; the BBQ Ranch has Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce, red onions, tomato, lettuce and buttermilk ranch sauce; and the Mushroom & Swiss also includes sauteed mushrooms and two slices of Swiss cheese.
All Turkey Burger varieties have less than 500 calories, which to some may still sound like a lot, but for Hardee’s that’s impressive since many of their beef burgers exceed 700 calories.
The Original Turkey Burger weighs in at 254 grams and contains 480 calories, 17 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 930 milligrams of cholesterol, 47 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, and 31 grams of protein.
The BBQ Ranch weighs 261 grams and has 460 calories, 15 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, 950 milligrams of sodium, 52 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, and 31 grams of protein.
The Mushroom & Swiss weighs in at 246 grams and contains 480 calories, 17 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 1380 milligrams of sodium, 44 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, and 37 grams of protein.
Update: Carl’s Jr. will also be adding Turkey Burgers to their menu. Along with the Original Turkey Burger, Carl’s Jr. will have the Guacamole Turkey Burger, which features freshly-prepared guacamole, pepper-Jack cheese, tomato and lettuce, and Teriyaki Turkey Burger that has teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, red onion, tomato and lettuce.
