They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and when you look at this Vegan Triple Stack, I would wholeheartedly agree. I mean seriously. The picture speaks for itself but I can’t just leave a blank page so let’s do a comparison!
Here’s a picture of the real McDonald’s Triple Breakfast Stack
Calories – 850. Total fat – 59 grams which is 91% of your daily allowance. Saturated Fat – 23 grams which is 115% of your daily allowance. And it even has TRANS FAT which I thought that wasn’t allowed anymore but oh well! TRANS FAT is .5 grams.
Total protein for the meat version is 34 grams which is 68% of your daily allowance. And sodium? Hold onto your hats. A whopping 2020mg. That’s 84% of your daily allowance.
Now let’s see how the Vegan Triple Stack measures up!
Vegan Triple Stack – Calories – 909. Okay, a little bit higher than the actual non vegan version. Total fat – 48 grams which is 11 grams less. Saturated fat – 15 grams which is 8 grams less. And of course NO TRANS FAT. But are you ready for this one?
Total protein for the vegan stack – 54 GRAMS. THATS 20 GRAMS MORE THAN THE MEAT VERSION.
So to all those people out there that say “how can you get protein from plants?” Look Mom, we just did.
And while it’s not the healthiest vegan choice to make, it’s a lot healthier than the non vegan alternative. And let’s face it, we all get a cheat day to eat whatever we want after a really hard workout.
So go run up a few hills. Then come down from the hills, relax, and make yourself a Vegan Triple Stack. After all, you deserve it.
Vegan Triple Stack
- Cook the sausage patties according to package directions. Set aside.
- Drain and press the tofu. Cut about 1/4 of a slice off of the block. Place into a greased pan and cut a circle out of the middle (can use a cookie cutter or knife). Pour your vegan egg into the middle and cook the tofu and egg over medium to medium high heat until done.
- With the bottom of the english muffin, first slather with mayo. Then alternate slices of cheese and sausage. Add the bacon and tofu/egg patty. Slather the vegan mayo onto the top portion of the english muffin.
- Look at. Drool. Then enjoy!
