Model Eats: Sexy Veg Burgers, Cape Town
#WHATHEALTHYMODELSEAT (In Cape Town)
What is sexier than a meat burger? A great gluten free veggie burger! While living in Cape Town, there were very few restaurants and grocery stores that offered a soy free veggie burger. South Africa is a big meat-eating country! One of my favourite health stores in Sea Point had these bad boys: SEXY FOOD Sexy Veg Burger. First off, I was already sold by the name. Second, it’s hard to find a soy free, gluten free veggie burger that’s not only good for you but tastey. Most veggie burgers are bound with wheat flour but these are made with coconut flour. I think the key ingredient to any great veggie burger are beans, beans, beans!
These burgers are gluten free, soy free, sugar free, preservative free and dairy free. (PERFECT!) Just a clean healthy burger made with real ingredients such as chickpeas, brown rice, lentils and my favourite, chia seeds. Chickpeas are high in protein and chia seeds are high in omega and fiber that you can eat these as your source of protein. The most recent flavor I’ve tried was the Thai-Licious patty (as seen in my photo above). It has loads of flavor and the spices compliment the chickpeas deliciously. For clean eating, try eating these bunless with a side of green veggies topped with alfalfa sprouts. There is nothing sexier than these burgers. Only thing is that these are only available in Cape Town. I wish could pack some with me on the plane ride back home!! Maybe I’ll start a petition to make these internationally available. 😉
