A Veggie Burger Voyage

A National Celebration with Hungry Squirrel

It's that time of year again when we honor the unsung hero of the burger world - the humble veggie burger. Yes, folks, it's National Veggie Burger Day and we at Hungry Squirrel are going nuts (pun intended) about it! So, let's embark on a culinary adventure exploring some fun, informative, and downright silly facts about veggie burgers.

1. The Art of Substitution

Veggie burgers are true replacement artists, crafted from a cornucopia of meatless ingredients. From tofu to beans, especially soybeans, and even nuts, these burgers are a testament to the power of plant-based goodness.

2. The Green Crusader

Our next fact might just make you see your veggie burger in a whole new light. Dubbed as 'Greenhouse Gas Superheroes', plant-based Impossible Burgers generate a whopping 87% fewer greenhouse gases than their beef counterparts. Who knew our veggie heroes were saving the planet one bite at a time?

3. A Growing Tribe

According to a 2018 study, an impressive 8% of Americans identify as vegetarians or vegans. That's a whole lot of people savoring the deliciousness of veggie burgers!

4. The Veggie Vanguard

Created in London in 1982, the VegeBurger, one of the first meatless patties to hit the market, paved the way for the plethora of plant-based options we enjoy today. We salute this trailblazing patty!

5. Power-Packed Plants

Don't be fooled by their humble appearance, veggie burgers are nutrient powerhouses. Packed with flavor, protein, and a host of nutrients, they're living proof that healthy can indeed be tasty!

Whether you're a Krazy-for-Ketchup kind of person, a Tickled-by-Teriyaki enthusiast, or a BBQ-Bonanza believer, we've got you covered! So go ahead, slather on some sauce and make that burger not just any burger, but your burger. Because at Hungry Squirrel, we believe in love at first bite!
