Who knew combining some humble cannellini beans, carrots, oats and a few simple household spices could create something that tastes so good and offers so many health benefits! Totally plant based and with kind-to-the-planet ingredients, these burgers provide a whole lot of flavour and satisfaction, without the need to consume red meat.
As we’re learning more and more about how our modern diets are effecting us, we’re realising that a primarily plant-based diet is one of the most powerful ways to take control of our health and wellbeing; lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, acidity levels, and preventing the onset of alzheimer’s disease are just a few ways going plant-based can help. Forms of arthritis, kidney stones, diabetes, eczema and other skin conditions like acne, Crohn’s, IBS and even levels of dangerous visceral fat can also be aided with a lifestyle concentrated on eating whole, natural plant sources of food. Everyone has a choice over what they choose to consume, but if eating more plants can help you live a healthier, happier life, it’s worth knowing!
