Simple homemade burgers

There is a lot of controversy surrounding meat and whether it is “good” or “bad” for you. Essentially, what really counts, is the quality of the meat you buy and how you cook it. Processed meat such as sausages and bacon are loaded with additives and should therefore be avoided. Cooking meat at high temperatures in vegetable oils may be carcinogenic, so the type of oils you cook your meat in, can make all the difference.
