I'm Going to Burger King and I'm Going to Have it My Way!

By
Real Estate Agent with Pavao Real Estate

I know your all thinking Suzanne must have lost her mind, with her dedication to fitness and all. But you heard me right, let me explain...

Last week when I was out and about with the little one when she suddenly got so hungry, she was starving! I can't let the kid starve, I pull into the local Burger King. I can't remember the last time I saw a Burger King menu, but as I'm ordering her kids meal there it is on the menu....

Burger King now serves veggie burgers! I can't believe it, was I reading correctly? There it was on the Menu board, a morning star veggie burger! For a low fat, low calorie lunch on the go check out the nutrition facts!

Compared to a tradition Whopper's 670 calories and 39 grams of fat, the veggie burger is the way to go! Just remember to keep it healthy, skip the mayo and hold the fries and this will get you through the day!

Keep in mind preparing your meals ahead of time is the key to success. But in the event you need to grab something quick there is a healthy choice now to keep you on track.

I served veggie burgers and tofu fries to my family.... once.  They revolted, and have never stopped talking about the tofu fries.  I got the recipe off a Martha Stewart show one day, and thought they must be ok if Martha's cooking them!  (Don't try it).

It is hard to pass up a nice juicy burger with cheese and all of the condiments. I have used veggie burger stuff to cut down on fat. I make a burger with 2 parts veggie burger stuff, 1 part ground beef, 1 part ground turkey or chicken, a bunch of parsley or basil and a few squirts of BBQ sauce. There is just enough fat to hold the patties together and it tastes pretty good. My teenage kids even request it!! My husband thinks I'm trying to poison him with "fake" food but he doesn't have much of a choice; in our house, you eat whatever Mom cooks!

Mow those sound good! I like burgers too, but I don't like what they do to your body! Like you I have turned the kids over to a healthy way of eating, I'm with you on moms rule. Thanks for stopping by. :)

Suzanne, I think its been years since I've been to visit BK.  I did not know they had veggie burgers.  I really like morning star so I might try it.  maybe... I dont know.  Not a fan of BK.  Maybe this will renew my interest as a customer.

Kimberly,

My surprise as well! At least they are offering a healthy choice, I think more fast food places will follow suit. Nice to see you! :)

Suzanne that was hysterical when I read the title.  I thought, there's got to be something really good coming for Suzanne to go to BK.  I've only tried a sample of a veggie burger at Costco and that's about it.  I love your suggestion to give it a try though.  Suppose I'll have to do that, well maybe.  Is there something else you would recommend?  LOL.

I had to do a RE-TAKE when I read this title Suzanne!!  I couldn't believe my fitness guru was actually SERIOUS about going to Burger King.  Glad to hear you could order it YOUR WAY and were happy about it!

By the way...I'm joining your AR Fit Club!  I've been watching what I'm eating for weeks and will eventually incorporate the exercise thing now that I've got a schedule of some type going on.  I've not been to a fast food joint in awhile...  HOOORRAAAYY!!!  You're rubbin' off girl!
