The Best Veggie Burger Ever

Best Veggie Burger Ever

This veggie burger is unreal. It’s a bold statement, I know. But it’s true.

Last weekend we had a big family bbq at my mom’s house. One of my older brothers is a vegan and his wife is vegetarian. My younger, and non-vegan, brother took the veggie burgers camping with him. Figures.

So here we were, on a holiday Monday with no veggie burgers for the vegan/vegetarian. The bbq was firing up in less than an hour and I had limited supplies. I felt like I was on an episode of Chopped. I whipped up this burger and even surprised myself how freakin’ awesome it was. Try my Rosemary Garlic Aioli on top with some sliced avocado – absolutely delicious!

I love sweet potatoes and knew they would be the perfect base to my veggie burger. The orange-fleshed vegetables are an incredible source of beta-carotene. A precursor to vitamin A, beta-carotene provides your body with hard working antioxidants. These antioxidants combat free radicals in our bodies, which help prevent cardiovascular disease, wrinkles, and cancer.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
