Sunday Funny #1

I HAD to post this picture my husband took for me of IAN'S Miniburgers with the superhero character at the bottom screaming out "I'm a SUPERFIT KID!!" What in the hell is that for? Apparently if you buy lots of Ian's products and you partake in this contest, you earn points.
There are 4 burgers in a box, 2.5 oz each.
A serving is 2 burgers which yields:
360 calories
12 grams of fat (4 grams saturated fat)
25 mg cholesterol
sodium 450 mg
42 grams of carbohydrates
5 grams of sugar
22 grams of protein
No vitamin A, C or calcium but it does provide 30% of daily iron needs.
A wimpy 1 gram of fiber is provided.
Kudos to the company as they do have something right, there are no preservatives or artificial colors or additives. The beef patty is from Coleman Farm/Ranch and they seem as eco-aware as ranchers can get.

Lets just quickly compare the beef miniburgers with a Burger King Veggie Burger (w/o mayonnaise) made with Morningstar Farms Garden Veggie Patties (175 gram serving vs. the 130 gram serving of the miniburgers)
300 calories
7 grams fat (saturated is 1.5)
870 mg sodium
46 grams carbohydrates
14 grams protein
4 grams dietary fiber
35% iron needs
10% of Vitamin A needs
8% of calcium needs
6% Vitamin C needs

BOCA burger has a great feature on its website where you can compare the nutritional stats of a boca product with its meaty counterpart.

Happy eating...K
