“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle
Tonight my husband and I embarked on an amazing adventure, unbeknownst to my husband. In the last month I’ve heard a talk show about a burger that’s completely plant based. I’ve also been bombarded by information about the virtues of eating plans that are heavy on the fruits and veggies, i.e., a plant based diet.
Lo and behold, which I think would be a good name for a law firm or religious congregation, I came upon these plant based burgers on my last trip to Whole Foods.
Because they came two to a package I knew the gods were telling me that it should be a meal for my husband and me. I told my sweet, unsuspecting husband we were having burgers for dinner. They’d have to be on toast because it’s been snowing FOREVER and I wasn’t leaving the house to get hamburger buns.
Directions with the pre-shaped patties were simple. Hot pan. Three minutes on each side. Don’t overcook.
This is another case of, “Wait! Let me get a picture of that before you finish eating it!” Husband obliged. I’m a fast eater. Mine was already gone. My husband was not aware that his burger was plant based and not beef.
We agreed. This plant based burger could fool a meat eater. It was simple to make and delicious. Meat substitutes from the past had a long way to go. I think they’re getting there!
