Hilary's Eat Well :: Real Food Veggie Burgers {Review}

Hilary's Eat Well makes delicious burger patties made with organic and non-GMO ingredients that are sure to satisfy even the pickiest eater. Perfect on a bun, as a compliment to a delicious salad, or alone dipped in a homemade sauce, these burgers have far surpassed my personal guidelines. For wholesome, real ingredients, and Always 100% Real Food, don't pass by these burgers on your next grocery store trip.
Okay, I'm not even close to being vegetarian, but I have a big thing for wholesome, real, convenient food. Really, these veggie burgers rock my socks off!! I generously received a few free product coupons to try them out for myself. At my local Whole Foods Market I was able to find the Worlds Best Veggie Burger and the Adzuki Bean Burger, although there is a new flavor that just came out, the Hemp & Greens Burger. I'm definitely looking forward to trying it soon!

Hilary's Eat Well burgers are: Certified Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Corn-free, Egg-free, Soy-free, Yeast-free, Nut-free, Non-GMO verified and Certified Vegan!
YUMMY! Here they are up close after popping out of the toaster (which takes two cycles since they start out frozen). The outside is not only crispy, but the inside remains moist and full of texture and flavor. No mush at all! Both varieties are unique but equally delicious. The Worlds Best Veggie Burger has more of a mild, earthy flavor and the Adzuki Bean Burger has a bit of an black bean taste and texture with a tiny spicy kick. Both are packed full of wholesome ingredients like quinoa, coconut oil, sweet potato, apple cider vinegar and so much more. I also love seeing that Hilary's Eat Well products include mostly organic ingredients, and are Non-GMO Project Verified.

Perhaps one of the best parts about these veggie burgers is how you cook them. I prefer the ease and speed of the toaster, but you can also use the grill, oven, or a pan on the stove if you wish. A microwave is not recommended, which I think is great. Any time I can avoid the microwave and still enjoy a healthy frozen food is just wonderful. 

If you have a food allergy, chances are you can indulge in one of Hilary's veggie burgers. I love that they are gluten-free but include millet, which isn't a grain I consume often so I don't have to fret about getting too much of it (I've been getting too much rice lately!). I'm also not a fan of soy, corn, or GMO's (of course) so I'm a huge fan of these veggie burgers. The wrappers are also biodegradable which is evidence of their commitment to the earth also.
I enjoy these burger patties plain, dipped in ketchup, and in chunks on a salad instead of my usual chicken. They're so delicious that even my picky 4 year old and husband will both eat these. Whether you're just starting out or are eating like a champ on your real food journey, I high recommend at least giving Hilary's Eat Well a try. Quick, wholesome, real food food doesn't get any better.

 Price: $3.69 per 2-pack
Buy It: They are available at many health food stores nationwide in the frozen section. I found mine at Whole Foods Market but be sure to check the store locator to find them near you.
