Dr. Gundry’s Vegan Burger That “Bleeds”

Now, you have likely heard about these new vegan burgers that bleed “blood.” Sounds good, doesn’t it? Sure … until you read the list of ingredients. Problem is, the ingredients read like a who’s who of lectins –

  • Protein Isolate from peas
  • Canola Oil
  • Yeast Extract
  • Maltodextrin (from corn starch)
  • Cellulose From Bamboo
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Vegetable Glycerin

… and those are just a few of the lectin-rich ingredients. So, to the average “bloody” veggie burger, you’re better off saying “No thank you.”

But if you’re a big fan of veggie burgers, and you want it to “bleed,” never fear. There’s a perfect Gundry-approved solution.

And to make your veggie burger “protein style” –  wrap it in a giant lettuce leaf. The leafy green wrap stands in for the bun!

Now you’ve got a meaty, red-tinted burger … minus the meat. It looks like the real thing and tastes even better!

And for those die-hard carnivores, that just cant give up meat entirely, theres a meat version just for you.
