Sunny Side Up Veggie Burger

One of the best parts about watching my kids get older and blossom is their evolving love of food and their choices in what they want to eat. Kenya is a perfect example of this fact. He’s been a vegetarian since he was little, but the way he eats, picking the foods that go in his body and his desire to cook for himself is always evolving. One of the foods that he loves most are eggs. We were at Panera a few months ago and Kenya discovered their scrumptious egg sandwiches. He devoured their egg and cheese sandwich, but weeks later when he decided to recreate one of his favorite sandwiches, he decided to take it up a notch and make a vegan burger with a sunny side up egg.  

I decided to dive in a little deeper to learn more about Panera’s inspirational Food Interrupted series. Each episode follows leaders in the food world as they meet everyday heroes who have dedicated their lives to changing America’s food system.

In the fourth episode, “Eggs Interrupted,” we learned that U.S. restaurant chains can use up to 16 ingredients including artificial additives! How crazy (and gross) is that!? What I love about partnering with Panera on this post is that we share the same values. An egg is an egg and should be enjoyed in that way with only one simple ingredient: egg!

If you’re a vegetarian (or not), you have to try this sandwich. We buy a variety of vegan burgers, top them with a golden egg that oozes all over the burger when you take a bite creating a luscious sauce. If you really want to take it up a notch, you can even give it a squirt of ketchup, mustard or even a sprinkle of cheese. If you have other suggestions toss them out in the comments below!

    Behold I was in a very bad shape when I lost my boyfriend. We were supposed to get married and everything got cancelled which was my fault. He broke up with me because he was a good guy who I treated wrong and didn’t appreciate.
    Subsequently I became so depressed and ashamed of myself, I realized he was my life coach and all, I cannot live without him. I searched and found Dr. Wakina just like others did, “Doctor please help me out, bring him back to me since he already got a new girlfriend. Not only do I have a broken heart but I have a broken soul too. I don’t know if he wants to show off or take a revenge from me. Make me everything he desires.” The result was presented to me as asked. The man I carelessly lost was brought back. I’m sharing this post to the public because Dr.Wakina via his email……. [email protected] wiped my secret tears and made us whole again. I’m now filled with tears of joy. All my mistakes have been forgiven and forgotten.

      In my humble opinion, I think it’s good idea to get back your ex-lover permanently after break-up through love spell. There is nothing wrong with seeking for help from an experienced and truthful spiritual spell doctor who can read through your broken heart to see the future and amend it if necessary.
      Most people think spells fade away after sometime, some think it’s against their lover’s will or against their religious believe, some think they will be ripped off for their hard-earned money.

      I must say that I have seen couple of successful relationship today through love spell.
      My Cousin (James) has been enjoying a peaceful and prosperous marriage since he got his wife back through love spell 4 years ago. On the other hand, my life has changed positively ever since Dr. Wakina via [email protected] cast a spell that helped me to reconcile with my husband.

      So, I will advise anyone looking to get his or her lover back to search thoroughly and contact a genuine spiritual spell doctor who can help. It won’t take days or weeks depending on the nature of your case for a genuine spell doctor to bring back your lover. Another benefit is that your lover will appreciate the effort you put in through love spell.
      That’s my humble opinion about love spell.

      The occurrences in my marriage wasn’t clear, I invested emotionally and I don’t see the positive impacts. I prayed for a husband that could remind me of the good he sees in me, a husband that can make me laugh and also boost my mood.
      The introduction of spell to my hunt saved my marriage. Dr. Wakina looked at the happenings from a different angle before solving the puzzle. He totally handled the event like the master he is. It was emotional for me seeing us reach beyond the invisible boundaries in our marriage.
      My husband is in support of this story, so I’m not compromising my integrity because the spell toss on us was a goodwill spell.
      “Share your story to liberate a relationship” was the word said to me by Dr. Wakina after he successfully completed a unity spell that brought us back after 9 months and 4 days. He found the enduring solution to my negative marital events via his email [email protected] I bless the day I read the story that lead me to Dr. Wakina.

    i believe testimonies are real life proofs of miracle signs and wonders because of my personal experiences from other Spell-casters I contact so many other Love spell-casters before but none was able to help me bring back my ex love partner, until few days ago i gave Dr.Oduduwa spellcaster a final try, i love my husband man we had two kids together and i needed bring him back home, to be with me, there to care, love our children growing-up together as one happy family.
    I send message to Dr.Oduduwa contact address, immediately few minutes time, I receive reply message from him, i was so happy because the mail was valid and still working, I explain to my relationship problems to Oduduwa, I ask for his help to bring back my love Anderson back into love me more than ever before.
    Dr.Oduduwa assure me 100% guarantee success,. he explained all Love-spelling required processes to me, I did as instructed. early Thursday morning, that is two days after launching Love-spell on my behalf, Jessica my ex wife call my Cell phone, i was so amazingly happy to answer her phone call because for almost more than 16 months now i have not receive Phone call from wife, no text messages and she have been refusing to contact with me. I'm overwhelmed with joy and happiness in my heart sharing my testimony out here,
    I use this medium to say my thanks to Dr.Oduduwa
    I have good intention sharing, I believe this information will motivate and save marriage relationship from divorcing, break-ups and separation. because when two people truly love and care for each other, they will always look for ways to make it work, no matter how hard it's cost for love is stronger.
