Thing #1: Om&Nom’s very first giveaway winner is…..Emily Vallaster!
In her response to the giveaway post, Emily linked a video that she had seen recently and now I want to share it with you. It’s definitely worth watching!
Thing #2: I saw something really fun on my morning run today and since it made me smile, I thought I’d share it with you:)
There were tree sweaters on all of the trees along one of the streets in downtown Bartlesville.
There were so many different designs, but my favorite was the one in front of Weeze’s Cafe!
Awesome Burger: Ever since Mr. Torres and I watched the documentary Forks Over Knives, we have been trying to eat a more plant-based diet.
The main premise of the documentary is that many of the health problems that we face today are due, at least in part, to the large amounts of meat and dairy products that we consume. Although I have always been more of a fruit, veggie and peanut butter type of girl, whenever I would mention that topic of vegetarianism to Mr. Torres, I would get shut down faster than you could say hamburger. However, after watching the documentary, he agreed to limiting the amount of animal products we consume.
Breakfast was easy as we usually just have cereal or oatmeal or the like.
Lunch was easy since I usually have lots of fruit and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Mr. Torres eats lunch at the cafeteria at work and still eats meat for this meal, but has decreased the amount.
Annnd, we still eat Daddy K’s grilled burgers and lots of ice cream for dessert…no one’s perfect, right?
This burger recipe was one that I found on Jessica’s blog and has become one of our new favorites!
Verdict: These burgers are easy to make and delicious! I usually make up a double batch, individually wrap the extras and then freeze them so that they are ready whenever we want a quick meal! However, if you are looking for a veggie burger that has the taste and texture of a regular hamburger, these are not what you’re looking for. But, if you’re looking for a fairly simple, delicious, healthy burger, then look no further!
Nom-Rating: ***** (5/5)
