Burgers & Beer: Guy Fieri’s Loaded Veggie Burger

Color and crunch and a whole lotta nutrition in one burger.

Guy Fieri’s Veggie Patties

Host of Food Network’s extremely popular show, Diner’s Drive-In’s and Dives, Guy Fieri is a television sensation. I’m fascinated by a show that glamorizes food that can kill you. Not a quick “kick the bucket” either. But a slow, disease ridden, artery clogging, gasping for breath because you’re morbidly obese kind of death. These producers are masters at making you salivate over poison.

The good news is Guy Fieri isn’t always about mile high hamburgers or chicken fried steak. He’s just as charismatic about his damn good veggie burger!

WAKE UP AMERICA! Inflammation: The Silent Epidemic

The basis of disease is inflammation.

Food For Thought

What I loved most about the conference I attended lead by Dr. Merrily Kuhn was the practical advice I could put to use immediately in my own home.

Inflammation is our body’s attempt to initiate a healing process. It is often misunderstood to be the injury or infection, but rather it is the response mechanism.

Chronic inflammation can lead to serious disease and can wreak havoc on our cells.

Here is a summary of 5 great tips by Dr. Kuhn. Read more

Burgers & Beer

Not your average bar and grill grub. An intro to my new Burgers & Beer series.

A Burger Fest

You don’t have to love meat to crave a great tasting burger. Veggie burgers are now mainstream. No more turned up noses by carnivores thinking “hippie burgers” with nothin’ but sprouts and wheat grass.

Unlike beef burgers, veggie burgers are patties with endless potential.  Some resemble beef while others stand out from the crowd with visible vegetables, grains and legumes.

This series speaks to my mission.

You can eat healthfully and compassionately without depriving yourself of good ol’ ballgame food.

So I’ve set out to prove it. Read more
