RECOMMENDATION #17: GARDEIN CHIPOTLE BLACK BEAN BURGERS

I’m always on the lookout for healthy, good-tasting food (the two don’t always have to be mutually exclusive). I happened on Gardein Chipotle Black Bean Burgers when I cashed in a BJ’s Warehouse coupon. For a pittlely amount of money, I had a dozen yummy veggie burgers. I nuked a couple of these burgers with some mozzarella cheese on top and I finished it off with some Tostitos Extra Hot Salsa.

      Patti, I think you’ll like these tasty burgers. Just be prepared to doctor them. They’re pretty blah if you eat them plain.

    My brother doesn’t eat meat (he used to be a vegetarian but does eat fish now) and he’s been eating these for years. The secret is indeed to spice them up.

    It amazes me how much vegan/vegetarian food is becoming more mainstream. Wegmans recently added a line of Wegmans’ brand vegan meat called “Don’t Have A Cow” and “Don’t Be Chicken,” as well as vegetarian veggie burgers. (http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10052&catalogId=10002&langId=-1&partNumber=COLLECTION_29716) Also, the winner of this season’s Cupcake Wars was a vegan bakery. I am happy to say that it looks like your prediction of reduced meat consumption might be right, Dr. Kelley. Even Bill Gates is pushing for meat alternatives!
