Day 23: Best Veggie Burger in Town

I cooked up a pretty mean veggie stir-fry for lunch and didn't have it in me to search out and prepare a new recipe for dinner, so we hit up Google for the best veggie burger in town. However, in town to us means driving at most 10 minutes, so our options were severely limited. So to People's Organic we went for some take-out!

We both ordered the "People's Best Veggie Burger" which is vegan and consists of:

  • cashews
  • fresh veggies
  • fresh herbs
  • organic chickpeas
  • organic brown rice
  • pickles
  • organic romaine lettuce
  • sundried tomato aioli
  • organic 100% sprouted wheat bun

I won't say it was the most amazing meal I've ever had, but it was pretty tasty. The texture was more like a chicken salad than a burger patty, so that threw me off a bit. Also for the two of us, it was almost $24, which can buy a lot of groceries.  Which got me thinking, I bet we've saved a ton of money by not eating out!

Was it the best veggie burger in town? Perhaps not. We'll explore farther from home when the weather turns. It's a balmy -22F with windchill at the moment. But it was nice to eat a meal that I didn't prepare myself. Not to say I don't enjoy cooking my meals, I do. It's also great to know exactly what goes into my body. It was just a nice change of pace.

Must be where this veggie burger came from.

Footnote: The blog now has over 2,000 views! Thank you all for checking out what I'm up to! On a side note, I tipped the scale at 196. I can't remember the last time I weighed this little. It's been at least 5 years.
