Lunchin’ it with Sunshine Burgers- Review and Giveaway

As many of you know, I work from my home as a technical writer. I keep a regular schedule (typically 7:30-4:30), and working out at 6 AM dark thirty every morning ensures I shower and dress instead of working in my pajamas.

When I worked in the corporate office, I often went to lunch with my friends and coworkers, or alone. This was fun, but it got old pretty quickly. You’re pressed for time when you only have 30 minutes to an hour for lunch, and going out every day makes your budget smaller and your waistline bigger- so I limited myself to once or twice a week. On the other days, I packed lunches and stashed them in the break room fridge.


Sometimes I miss lunches and celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and releases with my development team, and I’m grateful for my occasional visits to the corporate office when we can enjoy those times together.

While working at home has its challenges, one major advantage is access to healthy lunch options. Even in a foodie city like Charleston, most restaurants are pretty far from my home.  Only a handful of tasty and healthy options are within a lunch hour’s driving and eating distance of my house, and I usually don’t feel like braving traffic, so I opt to prepare my own lunch.

As a Fit Approach community member, I recently had the chance to try the Garden Herb and Southwest Black Bean Sunshine Burgers. Sunshine Burgers are vegan burgers with non-GMO, organic, whole food ingredients, and they are free of gluten, soy and other major allergens. 


Even though I eat fish and seafood, and I’m not allergic to gluten and soy, I still eat a lot of veggie burgers. I loved that every ingredient on the Sunshine Burgers label was recognizable. Instead of mystery ingredients I couldn’t pronounce, Sunshine Burgers contain actual vegetables such as carrots and chickpeas. The burgers are also a great source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and healthy fats- all great for fueling my return to running.

Sunshine Burgers make a great lunch during my workday, as I can cook them in a pan or in the oven in just a few minutes. They are microwavable, so if you work in an office with a freezer and a microwave, you could easily prepare one and crumble it over a salad, or eat it inside a bun or sandwich flat. Typically, I eat Sunshine Burgers in a sandwich, paired with a side of sautéed greens and some grapes.


The burgers also work well in quesadillas or on the grill. The boxes contain 3 burgers, so it’s perfect for a vegetarian at a cookout- you can have a burger and have some for friends to try.

If you’d like to try Sunshine Burgers, sign up for their e-newsletter so you can receive a coupon (you know I love coupons) and use their Find-a-Store feature to find them near you. Our local Earth Fare sells them here in Charleston. You can also find them on Facebook.

I’m giving away a coupon for a free package of Sunshine Burgers to one lucky reader. To enter, comment below with the variety of burgers you’d like to try, then log your entry in the Rafflecopter giveaway.
