Healthy fast food? February 25, 2007

Filed under: Crunchiness,Food,Health,Vegetarian — amygeekgrl @ 10:02 am

I recently came across this Rocky Mountain News article about a restaurant called “V.G. Burgers” on Kleo’s blog and I said, “Hey! We just ate there on Friday!”

V.G. Burgers is a new fast food restaurant in Boulder, CO, with an entirely vegetarian and almost entirely organic menu. In fact, 90% or more of the food is vegan.

I have a few friends (both vegan and not) who’ve eaten there lately and liked it, so when we found ourselves in Boulder Friday night, I said we should give it a try. Ava got the classic burger, Jody got the sunflower burger and I tried the falafel/hummus burger, all with (baked) fries. The food was good, though I wish we would’ve added something like guac or salsa to our burgers, because they were a bit on the dry side. The shakes, however, were delicious. We tried three different varieties – soymilk vanilla, hemp chocolate and chocolate peanut butter – and shared them between the three of us. The chocolate peanut butter was our favorite. 🙂

It was nice to find a fast food place with healthy (and vegetarian) food. Oh, and most, if not all, of their utensils, cups, plates, etc. are biodegradable (made from potato!). I hope the idea catches on elsewhere.
