Grain Free Magnesium Rich Vegan Burgers

A hearty, grain-free Vegan Burger that’s high in protein and magnesium! These Vegan Burgers fit Paleo, Anti-Candida and Gluten-Free Diets!

Magnesium is probably one of those things you don’t really think about on a regular basis, but if you get muscle cramps or have anxiety, this burger’s for you! Since I’ve been pregnant I’ve noticed an increase in muscle cramps in my legs in the middle of the night…not fun! So I’ve been paying particularly close attention to my magnesium intake. Magnesium can also help with lowering or regulating blood sugar and blood pressure, minimizing migraine headaches and with the absorption of calcium (think osteoporosis prevention).

Magnesium is also thought to play a critical role in brain function and mood, and low levels are linked to an increased risk of depression. Feeling blue lately, maybe you need to increase your magnesium levels.

Foods Rich in Magnesium:

Pumpkin seeds, which are at the base of this recipe, are one of the top foods highest in Magnesium! In addition to pumpkin seeds, other foods high in Magnesium are spinach, chard, dark chocolate 70 – 85% cocoa (pretty cool, huh!), black beans, quinoa, halibut, almonds, cashews, mackerel, avocado and salmon.

what i love most about these vegan burgers:

What i love most about these vegan burgers is how easily they’re made. Just throw everything into a food processor and let it do the work. Another thing i love about these is that they hold their shape pretty well. Other vegan burgers i’ve tried in the past usually fall apart when i flip them, or are hard to reheat, but these hold together like a charm.

Serve these with our Healthy Baked Sweet Potatoes Fries and Homemade Sugar-Free Ketchup for a healthy, satisfying and sugar-free meal that the whole family can enjoy!
