Burgers seem to be a staple of the average American’s diet. The
existence of fast-food chains all across the country proves that we usually want
food that’s quick, easy, and tasty. Unfortunately, most traditional burgers
come loaded with calories and dripping with grease and fat.
Luckily, vegan burgers are much kinder to both animals and your waistline! Check out the stats for my favorite veggie burger from Amy’s and see how it
compares to Burger King’s Whopper:

With almost five times the amount of fat and all that excess
cholesterol, it’s not difficult to identify which burger is a better choice for the health of your heart. I even keep down the calories by using 100% Whole-Wheat Arnold Select Sandwich Thins. Top that baby with some hummus and a slice of avocado, and I am one happy camper!
So next time you’re hankerin’ for some all-American burger
goodness, say “Goodbye!” to beef and “Hello!” to a
deliciously cruelty-free veggie burger.
