The 12 Ounce Thurman Burger Indulgence

Last night Nick and I brought my dad (and a few others) to The Thurman Cafe. This place was featured on the Travel Channel about a year ago. Here is a picture of the burger consumed by Adam of the Travel Channel’s Man Vs. Food:Thurman Burger

Saturday I posted about the dangers of heating high fat proteins, but of course last night I ate (and bought my dad) some high fat protein, which I’m sure was not prepared using the tips I provided in my post. I did order my burger medium-rare, which helps (less cooking time means less time to form those harmful AGEs). But as I always say, everything in moderation! I don’t do this often.

This is a picture of the burger I ordered……Thurman Burger 1

12 ounces of fatty ground beef, 2 slices of Swiss cheese, mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, and lots of yellow mustard

Calorie estimate: ~1100Thurman Burger 2

About 20 minutes later……Thurman Burger 3

I almost ate the entire burger, even the wheat-filled bun. I ended up leaving about 1/4 of the bun and a little bit of the cheese on my plate. I didn’t touch the chips because they weren’t anything special. I was so proud of my burger accomplishment (although I’ve admittedly done this three times in the past).

Question: When was the last time you let yourself INDULGE and order something that you typically wouldn’t? Did you eat the entire thing?

Coming Up

Tomorrow I’ll be posting about Agave, High Fructose Corn Syrup, and some new fro-yo; Banana and Chocolate Dreams.

Thanks for reading everyone! Have a great day.
