Our Favorite Veggie Burgers For National Veggie Burger Day

If you haven’t noticed by now, more and more burger eateries are offering plant-based patty options. Whether it’s the Impossible Burger of Beyond Burger, restaurants are grilling up and dishing out more vegetarian options because of the high demand. And there’s no better day to cook up a plant-based burger than on National Veggie Burger Day (June 5th). You might be surprised by how delicious veggie burgers can be. We aren’t talking about the frozen patties that contain unhealthy GMOs, excess sodium and unhealthy fats. No, no, no…making one of those is not encouraged today.

 

The Truth About The Veggie Patty:

Even though veggie patties are supposed to be comprised of veggies, they are usually made up of processed soy. Soy is one of the most genetically modified foods on the planet, so we say no to soy. Additionally, veggie burgers are almost devoid of nutrients because of how processed they are. This is changing, but a lot of processing happens to create that veggie patty you’ve grown to love.

 

On average each veggie burger contains about 400mg of sodium. Frequently eating that much sodium can increase your risk of kidney problems or high blood pressure. Finally, most veggie burgers tend to be large enough to comprise two meals, which adds up to about 1,000 calories per burger.
