7 Pounds Down + Veggie Burgers



Summer is right around the corner, so burgers are on my brain. This year, healthy burgers are on my brain. I haven't said as much, but I have lost about 7 pounds since January. It was completely unplanned. Each January, I always cut back after eating double my weight in fabulous food during the holidays. So I did that this year. Then in March, I purchased a Vitamix. I starting drinking a fresh organic spinach, berry and almond milk smoothie for breakfast every day (and still do). It fills me up and gives me so much energy! Starting my day off with something so healthy made me feel guilty about ruining it with something bad later in the day, so I made more of an effort to eat healthy all day. That's when the pounds came off.  I still have a day during the week where I eat absolutely whatever I want, but I have to say that I feel so much better! 

So with that, I've started to look for healthy recipes for the summer. I'm not a vegan or vegetarian, but I do love a good veggie burger. I often find that if the burger is perfectly seasoned, I totally don't miss the beef. These are a few that have made their way into my recipe folder. If you are looking for a healthier option for this upcoming Memorial Day, these might be some good options...

  8. Congrats on your healthy outlook, and major props on keeping it up since January! I used to drink a blueberry, strawberry and pure pineapple juice mix for breakfast (sometimes with a little kale thrown in for extra nutrients), and I can't remember why I stopped doing that. It was sooo good and gave me so much more energy than coffee. And lovely burgers you've got here. I really want to try the lentil recipe. I'm a veggie and always looking for hearty, meat-free options. Let us know what you think of them as you make 'em. :)
