Nourishment Notes

Lean Beef

Lean beef is a good source of many different vitamins and minerals, including zinc. Zinc is an important mineral for the immune system. Beef is also an excellent source of protein. Protein needs may be elevated when fighting an active infection.


Mushrooms are a good source of antioxidants, like vitamin C, selenium and choline. Antioxidants are known for their important role in the immune system, by removing free radicals and reducing oxidative stress.

Fatigue Buster

  • Grill Substitutes

    If you don’t feel like grilling, cook hamburgers in a skillet, grill pan or an indoor grill (ex. George Foreman Grill™)

  • Freeze

    Freeze any uneaten burgers and thaw to eat on a day when you are low on energy.
