Let The Sunshine In

January 14, 2011

Even though I’m apparently no longer an Aquarius, I decided today was still a good day to let the sunshine in:

In burger form, of course! It’s been a while since I’ve had Sunshine burgers in the house, and I’ll admit—I’ve missed them! They’re hands down my favorite of all the store-bought veggie burgers.  You just can’t beat them for great texture and big chunks of real veggies. On the side, I enjoyed some roasted cauliflower and carrot sticks. Plus a few squares of milk chocolate, which I fully enjoyed because…we both weighed in at under our pre-holiday starting weight!! I was 3 pounds under what I weighed in at in November, and Ryan was about .3 ounces under—but hey, that counts! We don’t know how big the pot is that we’ll be splitting…but we’re pretty proud of ourselves for not gaining holiday weight, so I guess that’s the real prize.  🙂

Off to get this weekend started with a craft project.  Have a great afternoon!

    Congrats on winning the pot! I hope it’s enough money to buy you something nice for yourself! I’ve never had a sunshine burger but my fav veggie burgers are Dr. Praeger’s.

    I’ve never tried sunshine burgers, but they look pretty good! Will have to add them to my list!

    Congrats on loosing weight during the holidays! And of course 3 oz count!

    Hey! I just came across your blog 🙂 Congratulations on the weight loss over the Holidays. I stayed the same :/ Better than gaining though since they say the avg american gains SIX pounds! I’ve never had those type of veggie burgers – I actually just thought of a good recipe to make my own for next week. I hope they turn out!

    Yay for not gaining!! Thats so impressive with all of the indulgences that come with the holidays.

    Also, I looooove sunshine burgers! I have to cross over the boarder to get them and even then I have to make sure I’m able to get home quickly to put them in the freezer. It doesn’t happen too often so I appreciate it whenever I get them.

    I’m no longer an Aquarius, either. Capricorn now? Feels weird, but I never fit the water sign at all!

    I read that we actually stick to our old signs because the new sign wasn’t in alignment with the human world or something…

  20. January 15, 2011 2:35 pm

    i’ve never tried sunshine burgers, but they sound really great! my fave = black bean burgers. 🙂

  21. January 15, 2011 3:54 pm

    I am an Aquarius too! In light of the news I wonder if I still am…

    Congrats on the 3 lbs! That is really great news since most people gain instead of lose during the holidays.

  22. January 15, 2011 5:17 pm

    Sunshine are my all-time fav veggie burger too-and the health benefits aren’t to bad either!!!
    3lbs through the holidays? AWESOME!

  23. January 15, 2011 9:33 pm

    Congratulations on those three pounds, lady! Being able to make that happen during the holidays is just huge. I was a Virgo, now I’m a Leo…go figure, right?

    Congratulations on the weigh-in!! I take it as a personal success, since you were staying at my house! All this talk about signs – I’m May 2 – am I still a Taurus? If not, what am I now? Also, what is your craft project? Send pictures!!

    Hi Anna! I’m just catching up on blog visits. Alas, I no longer seem to be a Capricorn!
    Re a few blogs back: You met Ryan G. at the Charleston “Teeter”? Well, I met Vanna White there!! I did see “The Notebook” but am not a fan of his novels. I am a fan of those Sunshine burgers.

    Best,
    Bonnie

    I have never tried the sunshine burgers. They look pretty tasty though. I usually stick to black bean burgers. Congrats on the weigh in and hope you had a wonderful weekend

  27. January 16, 2011 9:14 pm

    I actually haven’t tried ANY store bought veggie burgers yet! I’ve made my own, which were great. I’d like to buy some just to have on hand so I’ll look for that brand, thanks for the recommendation!

  28. January 17, 2011 3:04 am

    He he he… I don’t care what they say- I’m gonna be a Leo for life!
