Plant-Based Diets: Veggie Burger Edition

Americans spend the most on healthcare, yet we’re the sickest nation—how can that be? Considering 98% of us aren’t consuming the minimum requirement of fruits and vegetables each day, it’s no surprise that our health is suffering. In order to remedy this, we MUST start eating more plants. The first step to getting healthy involves increasing the amount of plants, especially vegetables, in your diet.

Highlights:

  • Full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber, plant-based diets energize, promote better digestion, detoxify, boost immunity, and fight cancer and signs of aging.
  • Whether you’re vegetarian, vegan or simply trying to get more plants into your diet, it’s important not to skimp on protein, an essential nutrient for growth, development and repair.
  • Our new vegetable burger is packed with protein AND fiber. Made from 100% organic ingredients, and free from gluten and grains, our Italian White Bean Burgers contain no flavors, soy protein isolates, inflammatory vegetable oils, toxic white table salt, pesticides, additives or GMOs—ever!

Full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber, there’s no denying that the more plants you eat, the healthier you’ll be! From fruits and vegetables to whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds, plants are the most nutrient-dense foods available and nourish the body from head to toe. Plant-based diets energize, promote better digestion, detoxify, boost immunity, and fight cancer and signs of aging.

More importantly, whether you’re vegetarian, vegan or simply trying to get more plants into your regime, it’s important to not skimp on protein. This macronutrient is essential for growth and development, blood sugar balance, hunger control, and rebuilding and repairing each of your 100 trillion cells on a continual basis.

From tofu dogs to Impossible™ Burgers, plant-based proteins are numerous, but quality is hard to come by. With packaging and label claims such as “natural,” “vegan” or “gluten free,” foods that sound healthy may not actually be as nutritious as they’re marketed. For example, “natural” is an ambiguous and unregulated term, and “vegan” only means the food is free of animal constituents. But what about everything else—like soy isolates, natural flavors and canola oil? These are all ingredients to be avoided, yet often found in store-bought brands. Furthermore, these same products are heavily processed, nutritionally void and contain ingredients that may actually do more harm than good.

The good news: it’s beyond possible (😊) to get all of the protein, fiber and nutrients you need from plants without comprising flavor for nutrition—and our new Italian White Bean Burgers are your answer! These delicious, grain-free vegetable burgers are made with straightforward, 100% organic ingredients you can trust! Plus, each quarter-pound burger provides nearly 20 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber! With digestion-promoting spices, sprouted beans, Nourished chickpea crumbs™, pasture-raised egg, Pecorino Romano cheese, and mineral-rich sea salt—there’s no junk! That means no natural or artificial flavors, soy protein isolates, inflammatory vegetable oils, toxic white table salt, pesticides, additives or GMOs—ever!
