Tried Something New

It was time I tried... a veggie burger.

I so did. And, the verdict. You know, it wasn't bad at all!

I bought Morning Star's Mushroom Lovers burgers and was very nervous to try them. I grilled it in the pan as directed and served them on another 'new to me' (hence forth to be known as simply 'ntm') product, Arnold's 100% whole wheat Sandwich Thins. Both were yummy with lettuce, tomatoe, grilled onions and mustard. I can't say that I thought 'wow, this is a great BURGER.' But it was a very enjoyable hot sandwich. Even the hubs ate it and thought it was pretty good.

Here's the skinny on both items:
Mushroom Lover's Burger - 110 calories, 6 g fat, 7 g protien and less than 1 g of dietary fiber.
Sandwich Thin - 100 calories per roll, 1 g fat, 5 g protien and 5 g dietary fiber.

Now it's time to go to the movies with the family.


  1. Good for you!

    Here are my favs: I prefer the Pepridge Farm sandwich thins - they seem softer than the Arnold brand to me. My favorite is Soft Oatmeal.

    For veggie burgers I like Morning Star's Spicy Black Bean - it's really not too spicy. I also like Amy's brand Tex Mex veggie burgers.

    Oooh... and Jennie O Lean Turkey Burgers - even Dan likes them!

    Okay, I'm done! Can you tell I get excited about this stuff? :)

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! I'm always looking for healthy stuff that tastes good!!
