Many thanks to Kimberly for telling me about these Artichoke Burgers, and many thanks to Valerie at Five Star Foodies for sending me the following samples.

I was anxious to try both the burgers and the chicken salad after reading the list of ingredients. Although both contain a bit of sugar, it’s not much, and no soy! Both are gluten-free as well.

I pan fried my burger in a little coconut oil in my cast iron skillet. It came out perfect, slightly crisp on the outside, and the inside tasted like creamy artichoke dip. Seriously. Mmmm. Watch out Sunshine Burgers!

The Save A Chicken Salad is made with artichoke hearts as well, along with cashews. I’ll be honest. The calorie content freaked me out a bit as the small 6 ounce container I received contained 360 calories. However, a little goes a long way, and I spread it out over 3 servings.

Delicious. Creamy with a very strong celery taste – just like I prefer my actual chicken salad.

Thanks again to the folks at Five Star Foodies. I’m very impressed with your products, and I wish they were available in stores. However, for now they are only available online.

OK off to squeeze in a yoga class before my first client. I’m trying a new one today – Creative Flow.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!
