Delicious veggie packed vegan black bean burgers with plenty of spices. I call these the ultimate black bean burger. Top with avocado, onion, tomato and a super addicting garlic tahini sauce!

30 minute THURSDAYS ARE BACK! Are you excited?!

I’m sitting in a cute little juice shop writing this post. The walls are white and the menu is a multi-colored rainbow. It really screams millennial, you know? They even have a smoothie bowl called the ‘Fruity Pebbowl’. It has something called blue magik in it.

WHAT THE HELL IS BLUE MAGIK?! Sounds cool, but honestly, what is it? Hold on a second while I go ask.

As you can see via Instagram, Tony and I have been grilling up a storm this summer. In fact, we been grilling on our deck nearly every night while our adorable little cat Milly watches and meows outside the window. We call it family night. Hah.

If you’ve been following AK for a while now, you know that my boyfriend is in love with meat, fries and pizza. On the other hand, I’m fond of spinach, avocados and nut butters. It’s an odd little combination but we love and accept each other’s need for particular foods, often planning meals around each of our individual cravings (like these healthier baked fries!).

I’ve been wanting to make beet burgers ever since my Mom introduced me to them a few years back. Whole Foods used to make this fantastic version full of crunchy walnuts, beets and so much flavor; often times we’d scarf them down after our workouts.

Sadly, I can’t seem to find the same tasty beet burgers at any Chicago area Whole Foods.

How was your weekend? We finally set up our living room with our new rug, plus I just ordered a custom designed ottoman, which I’m really quite excited about. We picked a dark blue velvet color and can’t wait to see it when it arrives in a few weeks. Other new things? A black custom french-looking desk and a small side table that’s going to be painted a bronze gold. Obsessed is an understatement.

Hmmm what else? Chicago’s been insane lately. We’ve had the Chicago marathon, the Cubs in the playoffs and the Bears actually won TWO games. Thus, I’ve been eating a little too much pizza and bar food lately. What I’m really craving now is a seriously good veggie burger with a huge side salad.

My favorite way to eat food this summer is in the form of grilling. Also known as the easiest way to make a delicious meal.

Here’s something I learned recently: Did you know that you can place a can of baked beans right on the grill? Tony taught me this trick and I was thoroughly impressed. All you have to do is open the can, remove the label, then place on the grill until bubbly hot. Easy and no pans required!

Now that you’ve got that trick under your belt you have to time to whip up some of these sweet and spicy turkey burgers.

So many new obsessions lately! I mean did you watch Game of Thrones on Sunday? Errrr my goodness, how is that show SO good? I can’t even fathom how someone can have that incredible of imagination. It’s like oh hey, I’m just thinking about dragons all day long… probably should write some books about it with all of these intricate characters that magically weave together perfectly. People will love it.

Mind blown.

Also, Mother of Dragons FTW.

Why are burgers so freakin’ delicious? I’m serious. Turkey burgers, chicken burgers, bites of Tony’s heart-attack double bacon burgers. Oh and isn’t it just convenient that they are constantly paired with the other most addictive food in the world… aka french fries?!

My willpower around juicy burgers and hot, crispy french fries = zero.

So, what’s a girl who is trying to eat healthy but has a massive craving for a burger to do?

Hello Monday. Hello delicious little veggie burgers that I want to devour.

I’m currently on a juice cleanse. I’ve done one before, so it’s not really a shock to my system. However staring at pictures of these burgers is making me so hungry. GIVE ME DAT BURGA. With a side of sweet potato fries and half of cup of sriracha please.


But for reals, veggie burgers are totally my jam. I love em! They’re so much more delicious than those creepy burgers packed with soy and foreign ingredients. I already have a sweet potato chickpea burger and a lentil burger that you should try!

These burgers are the real thing: spicy, sweet, fresh, totally bomb little love bites in your mouth.

I am quite descriptive today. Probs because I’m on mission to bring you deliciousness. HEY ooooooo.

FYI: Proper grammar doesn’t count in today’s post. Like it ever matters here anyway.
