Product Shout Out: Hilary’s veggie burgers
I have been a vegetarian for 25 years, but anyone who knows me well knows I’m probably the worst vegetarian ever! I despise mushrooms and peppers and only like onions when they are caramelized. I try to eat healthy and organic (obviously), but that doesn’t always equate to eating low calorie and fat. Since I’m currently trying to shed some pounds I have been focusing on keeping full by having wholesome meals and snacking much less. One meal I love to have is a veggie burger and fries. My favorite ever is BurgerFi, which is the best veggie burger in the universe! Sadly though it is most definitely not low fat, so I have been making my own at home. I absolutely love having the Hilary’s burgers with cheese on top – because I believe cheese makes everything better (a definite downfall lol). It’s super healthy, very yummy and extremely filling. It is great for people with allergies as it is certified gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, yeast-free, soy-free, corn-free, sugar-free, and nut-free. It’s also certified vegan (before I put my cheese on) kosher, non-GMO verified and made with ingredients like coconut oil and organic grains and vegetables. The company is also focused on sustainability and is a B corporation like Beautycounter. For those who are unsure of what a B Corp is – they are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. These veggie burgers taste amazing and my 2 year old even eats it with me! I buy mine at Whole Foods and cook it on a ceramic pan. Enjoy! ?
