Foodie Friday: Gluten & Soy-Free Veggie Burgers

It’s still summer and summer means barbeques. And BBQs means veggie burgers! However, enjoying veggie burgers can be quite difficult when you are allergic to soy or have a gluten-intolerance. Even if you are simply trying to avoid these foods for health reasons or to lose weight, it can be frustrating finding the right products. Of course, you can always make your own gluten-free and soy-free veggie patties but, sometimes, it’s nice to know that there are convenient options available in your local health food store.

Thankfully, the vegan food industry is always evolving to meet the unique dietary needs of their customers and there are more options available than ever. I have done a search of popular brands that feature gluten-free and soy-free options and have listed them below. Most of these products can be found at Sprouts Farmers Market or Whole Foods stores. If not, check the product’s website for locations near you.
