Southwest Veggie Burger!

I've recently discovered delicious Morningstar Farms classic veggie burgers. I got over my slight skepticism that because they were veggie burgers, they had no protein in them. WRONG! They actually have 15g of protein in them, 130 calories, and 74% less fat than a regular burger! So I tasked myself to come up with a delicious burger substitute for dinner that was healthy too.

Morningstar Farms Southwest Veggie Burger

- 1 Morningstar Farms classic veggie burger patty
- Half an avocado, sliced\
- A scoop of salsa (I used Trader Joes Pineapple Salsa)
- A honey wheat english muffin

Step 1: Microwave veggie burger per instructions.
Step 2: Slice up avocado and layer it on both sides of the english muffin.
Step 3: Add the veggie burger patty and scoop on some salsa.
Step 4: EAT! Om nom nom...

380 calories, 40g carbs, 18g fat, 22g protein, 12g fiber

If you want to knock out most of the carbs, go naked and ditch the bun!

Here's a photo of my delicious creation! As you can see, I got too impatient and started eating it before I took a photo.
