Father’s Day is coming up and I asked my husband,Chris, what he wants for a celebratory meal. He surprised me with his request for Impossible Burgers, a plant based meat substitute. He is a meat loving type of guy most of the time, although he has never refused to eat any of my roasted veggies (add olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and he will eat most anything!).
To any aspiring meatless Monday men out there, Chris promises these burgers taste just as good as beef, he actually likes the flavor better, hence his request for his special meal. I understand not all Dads want to celebrate this way, so check out my burger round up from Meal Garden (my recipe and meal planning tool, so all of these are decent from a nutrition perspective), which includes burgers of all kinds!
To all the Dads out there, happy Father’s Day! I hope your family allows you to relax or putter in the yard/garage (what my own Dad loves best) and prepares for you some kind of delicious grilled meal!!!
