FOODIE FRIDAY: QUINOA & BLACK BEAN VEGGIE BURGER

I'm not sure if you all know this, but I'm a vegetarian! Have been for over five years. That being said, the first couple of years of my veg-hood, I wasn't a very smart eater. My diet consisted of carbs and sugar and it was just a horrible mess. I was only in the 8th grade when I decided to go without meat so I definitely was too young to really think about my body and how I treated it.

I didn't start to concern myself with the health of my body until 2012, but starting in 2011 I finally came around to the idea of veggie burgers and well, putting protein into my body. I had taken out a giant portion of my diet and for years I simply just did not find anything to replace it. Veggie burgers were my first step towards helping my body out again.

I found this amazing recipe on a blog a few weeks ago and had to try it out! I was lacking in a lot of ingredients for other kinds of burgers so I was pleased to see this one was comprised of some other things. In all, it was a pretty good burger. I have to say if you decide to make this, make the patty thinner than I did! I'm going to try this again and can guarantee that if it's thinner, it'll be even better!

I served my burger with seasoned waffle fries and a fried egg white!


Enjoy!
