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!

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

A Perfect Marriage- Garlic and Greens

Simple ways to make vegetables fabulous any night of the week!

Today I’m sharing my tried and true methods of cooking green vegetables. Super easy, delicious and absolutely beautiful.

Remember, the we eat category is not about culinary prowess but about everyday healthy meals, snacks and side dishes that can be cooked on the fly.

Vegetables should be a large part of every family’s daily diet.

Green bean casseroles like your granny made do not deserve to enter your FIT body in 2012.

Gaaaaarlic, hints of hot red pepper, smells of the Louisiana French Quarter, and calcium from cute, crunchy seeds— that’s what I’m talking about. Leave the greens that taste like grass to the hippies. If I’m going to fill 1/2 my plate with vegetables every night, they have to be worthy of center stage.

Less is more when it comes to lovin’ those greens the FIT way! Read more
