Kretschmer Wheat Germ Eat Healthy!

Hey Neighbors!

We were recently given the opportunity to review Kretschmer Wheat Germ.  Now many of you may already know the benefits of adding wheat germ to your diet, but if you don't, let me just tell you that it is on the Mayo Clinic's top 10 list of healthy foods.  You can read more about that HERE.

After finding out how good wheat germ is for you my family wanted to try it out.  We were having sloppy joes that night, so we just sprinkled some on the sloppy joe before putting the top of the bun on.  You really could add this to almost anything.  My daughters are adding it to their smoothies and we are going to bake it into our banana bread.  You can add the Kretschmer Wheat Germ to your yogurt, cereal, pudding, you can even use it as a replacement for bread crumbs on your chicken.

From Kretschmer:
Wheat germ is one of the year’s hottest health trends because it’s a versatile addition to almost any meal. Derived from the most nutrient rich part of the wheat kernel (which is removed during the refining of whole wheat grains to white flour), wheat germ is an excellent source of nutrients including vitamin E, the B vitamins, and folic acid.

Here is one of their recipes:

Mushroom, Parmesan and Wheat Germ Turkey Burgers (
These flavorful burgers will satisfy even the red meat lovers in your family. They're filled with mushrooms, parmesan cheese, wheat germ and Dijon mustard. Cook them on the grill or in a grill pan on top of your stove.
Serves 4
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups chopped cremini mushrooms
3/4 pound lean ground turkey*
1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
In medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add garlic and mushroom and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until mushrooms are soft. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
In large bowl, mix together turkey, wheat germ, Parmesan, mustard, black pepper and cooked mushrooms. Form into 4 patties or 8 sliders. Grill on the barbecue or in a pre-heated grill pan until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve immediately with all the fixings: buns, sliced tomatoes, lettuce and pickles.
*This recipe works better using lean ground turkey that is not 99 percent fat free

There are many other recipes on their site, so be sure to take a minute and check them out.  Look how easy it will be to add a healthy twist to your summer grilling.  Just add a little to your burgers and most likely no one will even be able to tell.  And it is so easy to find, just look in the cereal aisle of your local grocery store.

One neighbor will receive two coupons for a free Kretschmer's Wheat Germ.  Thanks for stopping by At the Fence, come back soon for another visit.
