Garden Burger for lunch.

I love a good Cheeseburger: A thick beef patty and all it's glorious juices, gooey cheese, thick bacon, fresh sesame seed bun. Oh yes. My mouth is watering. And even better than the actual burger is the choice of sides: sweet onion rings, deep fried mushrooms, crispy fries and a cold, thick chocolate shake. Hello! If only I could take out the artery clogging fat and thousands of calories from those items, I would enjoy them all the time. Too bad.

Instead of having a juicy bacon cheese burger, I decided to make a moist and delish veggie burger. I topped it with a half slice of cheddar, mustard, relish and shredded cabbage (from a cole slaw package, it's great for some crunch) then put it all between 2 halves of a whole wheat light english muffin.

Ok, so I know that a veggie burger doesn't compare to the All American Bacon Cheeseburger, but when you weigh the pros and cons between the two, a veggie burger is the obvious better choice.

Happy Healthy Eating!
