Veggie Burger or Green Biscuit Hockey Puck?

I found these vegan Dr. Praeger's California Veggie Burgers at Trader Joe's. They are not pretty in the photo on the box. ("New look, same great taste!" Wow. What was the old look?) They are even homelier after they're cooked. Think moss covered drink coaster. The taste though, is pretty all right. There's nothing burger-y about them but they do have a pleasant vegetable-y taste. Definitely worth a try.

What I ate today:

• 1 avocado
• 1 handful Brazil nuts
• coffee
• salad w/ romaine, tomatoes, olives, onion, green pepper, vinaigrette
• iced tea
• apple
• sunflower seed butter
• roasted tomatoes, zucchini, kale, beets, carrots, onion

Not So Much

Vegan Tikka Masala from Trader Joe's. I knew this had too many ingredients to really be that healthy, but I thought it would be worth a try. It was not. I had pictured the mounds of chicken replacement stuff to be tofu. I was wrong. It was textured vegetable protein, or TVP. Little, round, rubbery, fake meatball things that I am not a fan of. My review? The VTM with TVP was YUCKY. I gave it up and steamed an artichoke instead and that's how lunch was saved.
