With Memorial Day Weekend behind us, I finally have a moment to get back to you, and back to little bites. Summer holidays are marked by potato salad, coleslaw and all-beef burgers and dogs grilling on the George Foreman. Despite all the edible temptations, and the inevitable indulgences, there are a few fundamental ways to revamp the American BBQ to keep afternoon picnics light, fresh, and vegetarian.
There are so many vegetarian and vegan burgers on the market nowadays, it can be difficult to pick the best one. Whether or not your a carnivore or an herbivore, Boca Grilled Vegetable Burgers are a great way to freshen up any backyard menu. With only 80 calories per patty, 1 gram of fat and a whopping 12 grams of protein, Boca burgers are one of the most low-calorie options, and they are available in almost every supermarket.
Huge chunks of zucchini, corn and grilled peppers make this burger a flavorful alternative to the meaty standard. What’s more, when looking for the perfect vegetarian burger, I keep an eye out for visible ingredients – there’s nothing worse than an artificial burger made from a mysterious tan pulp.
When eating BBQ-style, go bunless and use fresh chopped onions and tomatoes as your condiment for an ultra healthy backyard bite.
Another great burger to try when shaking up a homestyle BBQ menu includes MorningStar Farms Grillers California Turk’y Burger, which is packed with the sweet and acidic blend of tomatoes and avocados and accounts for only 90 calories per patty,
No matter who you celebrate with, try substituting low-calorie, vegetarian options into your holiday gatherings.
Until next time, here’s to a weekend of celebration, remembrance, and perfect little bites.
