To live vigorously and luxuriantly, to flourish
This veggie burger is quite tasty! Despite being cooked and therefore void of some of the great nutrients available if consumed raw; this is an excellent alternative to a beef burger. This burger with lettuce, tomato (heirloom tomato season is a great motivator for me) cashew cheese sauce and raw ranch dressing is QUITE NUTRITIOUS! We ate it on Ezekiel bread and experienced NO DIGESTIVE UPHEAVAL!
