Spinach and Feta Turkey Burgers

I always try and figure out something new to make with ground turkey. When I come home from work hungry, I lose all my creativity and opt for some easy tacos. Tonight, I took to Pinterest for inspiration and I found it! I had all the ingredients needed (there’s not too many) and I altered the recipe I found to make these low-FODMAP and gluten-free. Use your choice of spices such as Superfood Turmeric, to add lots of flavor to this dish.

Further Food Commentary:

When some foods like turkey and spinach are cooked, it is easier to absorb higher levels of vitamins A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium, and iron. Additionally, a 1/2 cup cooked spinach provides 23 calories, 3.8 g carbohydrates, 3 g protein, 0.3 g fat and 2.4 g fiber, which is 10% of daily value. Feta cheese is made of goat or sheep's milk, but has a high saturated fat and sodium content, with a 1 oz serving containing 75 calories, 6 g of fat, of which 4.23 grams are saturated. Being mindful of saturated fat intake is necessary to limit elevation of raised cholesterol levels, which can increase risk of diabetes and/or heart disease. It's recommended to limit saturated fat intake to less than 10% or less of the total number of calories consumed daily.
