Here’s my Sexy Fit Vegan™ take on store bought veggie burgers…
I split them into two main categories, so here they are along with my top recommended products for each:
1. Veggie burgers for special occasions.
These are ones that look, taste, and feel most like beef burgers, and may be something you want to use for barbeques or when trying to appease a meat-eater or your own craving for meat if you are at a point where you still have those cravings! The down side is that they tend to be more processed and contain more ingredients that are not healthy. So while you are doing right by the animals by not supporting their horrific life and death, you are not doing your body a favor by eating them!That being said, we are all entitled to treat ourselves to some vegan foods that are not the best for us every now and then. I know I do! As long as you are keeping your regular diet clean and exercising there’s no reason for guilt 😉 Here are two of the best tasting and healthiest burgers in this category. The Amy’s Bistro Burger is definitely the healthier option of the two. Many people love the taste of the Morningstar Grillers Vegan though so I wanted to include it for the special occasions category!
2. Burgers I recommend suitable for regular consumption.
These patties are much less processed. They are absolutely delicious, but must be looked at as their own unique food items, not to be compared to the taste and texture of a beef patty! Here are my top two picks. The Sunshine Burgers should be thought of as a hearty meal, as it is higher in calories and fat than the others I’ve mentioned. I also like the Southwest style burger from Sunshine Burgers. Dr. Praeger’s California Veggie Burger is great because it has whole food ingredients, is low in calories, low in fat, high in fiber, and high in protein! I also enjoy Dr. Praeger’s Bombay Veggie Burgers.
