Ok, so Jana decided to change up some Taco Tuesday last night and make her Famous Veggie Crumble Burritos. I am a huge carnivore, and tend to be quite leery of anything soy-based as a substitute for my ground up bovine, but heed my advice, friends… VEGGIE CRUMBLES ARE FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! We totally hid the fact that we weren’t eating meat from Gabe and he wasn’t all that upset, to be honest. So, they are now going to become a staple in my home. Consider this disclosure to anyone that eats at my house. You may be eating Veggie Crumbles instead of meat. I did the calculations, and VC are an amazing beef sub. 396 cal for GB, 80 cal for VC. 24 g of fat for GB, 2.5 for VC. The protein is a lot higher in beef, but 10 g for a serving of VC is still fine.
