Going Meatless - Hamburgers & Hot Dogs
We tried Smart Dogs this week. We were drawn to these because they are only 45 calories per dog & 0 grams of fat! We were super excited to hopefully find a healthy replacement for our favorite Hebrew National hot dogs, which are 140 calories & 14 grams of fat per dog.
Unfortunately we weren't thrilled with these. They were super soft, so there was no bite to them. We boiled them as suggested on the package. Perhaps a different cooking method would have helped? Are there any other really good vegetarian hot dogs out there that we should know about?
Either way, we didn't have to take a handful of tums after eating them & that continues to be one of my favorite things about the vegetarian diet. No indigestion!
We were not prepared for dinner one night & Dylan was craving a burger. We heard that Fatburger has veggieburgers on their menu. When we got there we found out that they were just boca burgers. But they were delicious & at only 70 calories & 0 grams of fat per burger, there's no reason to feel guilty about eating them! We're having them again tomorrow night. This time at home. We find the trick to a yummy, yummy boca burger is to load up the toppings.
