Homemade Burgers made from 100% Organic Beef

Hi Everybody, how was your week? Did you had romantic dinner/lunch (in my case) on Valentine's Day? 
Mine was great..since my hubs was working we had wonderful "romantic"lunch and I made burgers.
Before I start to talk about this meal let me thank you all again for wonderful wishes to get better after the surgery..it means a lot to me how everybody was so thoughtful. Well, I took a week off from cooking..I can't say that I didn't enjoy being lazy all day, laying in bed, watching TV and not stress about anything..when you have a soul-mate next to you, you really don't have to worry about one single thing. He took kids to school, cleaned, cooked, washed, worked..I mean he is one of the kind, but still didn't lose his "macho" tough look:))..psss don't tell anybody but he is really cuddly bear in his heart:)

 - You all know that I've changed my diet. I ate balanced meals, in moderation everything of course and that is fine if you are healthy but I had to change 'cause I take my health rather seriously since the food that I was eating was making me sick. I still eat everything that my heart desire but found out that there is much more healthier way of keeping myself healthy and not necessarily lose the taste. Now I use stevia instead of the regular sugar, instead of the regular butter I am using vegan butter, and organic fruits, veggies and meat. Now that I mentioned meat I love beautiful chunk of beef and I just took one more turn in a right direction and got a Organic beef from "Rocky Mountain's Grass-fed 100% Organic Meat" ( USDA Organic). Why should you consider getting and switching on this meat? Answer is very simple because this is the best meat that you'll ever taste. 



After spending few hours of reading about the meat (I know to some of you may seem weird to read about this) trust me you don't won't to know what you are eating from the store..I hate for example when I get ground beef and there are three different colors...yes most of the stores are combining old ground beef with new one so they can sell old one easier, that is the only explanation that I could think of ...really nasty when you thing about what you are feeding your family with..right?

Now let's get down to business and let me give you the best burger recipe that you will ever taste..now even better because I used Organic Ground Beef.

Just a little note on the end..I ate only quarter of this giant burger because I have to take it slowly introducing food again into my system...and one more thing that surprised me that for the first time in a really, really long time the ground beef didn't gave me heartburn. 


Hope you enjoyed this post and my burgers... I will have more recipes really soon with Organic Beef!

P.S. Since I had so many questions regarding baking soda let me answer the question to everybody.
Many people have hard time (including myself) digesting meat..sooo let me tell you that soda help you digest it and  if you combine it with bread crumbs making your beef patties just a bit more plummer! If you are concern about the taste I am here to tell you that you can't taste it at all!!!
