Feeling Better and a BOCA Giveaway!

206 Comments 11741 views

Geeeesh! What a gloomy Monday today. NOT the best weather when you are fighting a funk but fighting I still did. I actually slept in a little this morning deciding to skip my early morning gym trip. I thought the sleep would do me good. Instead, I did a short ab routine while watching the news. It was nice. Tomorrow I’m planning on a run and some weight training.

I also worked on my water intake. I’ve been getting real lax with the water consumption these last few weeks and I swear I can feel the difference. So I packed my new water bottle and snapped a funny picture. That always makes me feel better. ;)

Roni Water Bottle

On the food front I stuck with packed snacks for lunch. Lots of munchie fruits and and veggies, yogurt and frozen leftovers. I even counted points on my food journal. I think the extra accountability will do me good for a little while.

But enough about me and my boring funk… I got stuff to giveaway!! Always fun. :)

BOCA asked if I’d be willing to host a giveaway to spread the word that they are now endorsed by Weight Watchers®. If you aren’t familiar, BOCA are a line of soy-based meatless foods, from burgers to chik’n to crumbles. 

This weekend I made one for myself on burger night. I don’t have anything against "real" burgers but on days when I consume my weight in chocolate (like Sunday) I figure it’s a good idea to do some damage control and ease up a little at dinner. It’s all about balance, right?

I like mine on a whole wheat bun, sandwich thin or light bread with lettuce, tomato, sweet pickles some fresh cracked pepper. Just like this…

Roni's BOCA burger

3 Point Burger baby.. yeah! :)

So for those that love BOCA or those that are willing to give them a try we have 4 BOCA Prize Packs to giveaway…

BOCA prize Pack

Each Prize Pack contains…

  • A Reusable shopping bag
  • BOCA yoga mat and carrying bag
  • Daily Planner
  • BOCA journal
  • BOCA recipe card and free product coupons
  • BOCA serving tray

As you can see my motivation turn workout partner was quit smitten with the yoga matt. (Note: He’s too big to do downward dog under me like he did last year in that post. :(

To enter the BOCO giveaway simple leave a comment below about how you currently enjoy BOCA products. If you are new to BOCA… which products would you like to try?

I’ll pick 4 random winners on next Monday, May 3. Good Luck!!

    I like u eat them for damage control and dont even use the bun. I’ve eaten them for years and like the Aisen ones the best.
    I live in Boca Raton Florida and wonder if the person who invented them was from here. Boca Raton in Spanish means rats mouth and thats how our coastline looks in Boca Raton.

    I love the flame grilled burgers – yum! I put on a smidgen of barbecue sauce and put them on the 1 pt. thin sandwich bread. Tasty!

    I love the flame grilled burgers on a bagel thin! With cheese it makes it into a guilt free cheese burger. Boca makes my favorite veggie products.

    I love the boca chik ‘n patties. I secretly adore fast food. I am especially fond of the chicken biscuit at McDonald’s. I shudder to think how many calories and fat grams it has. So, I buy the boca chik’n patties and put them on a wheat burger bun with a few dill pickle slices. It’s not exactly the same but I feel better after I eat it; both physically because it’s not so fat laden and mentally because it’s not so fat laden.

    I was right.. after I researched that.
    The Boca Foods Company began in Boca Raton, Florida, in 1979 with the vegetarian “Sun Burger”. Over the next decade, more burgers were introduced, as well as meatless versions of ground beef, chicken nuggets, pizza, chili, lasagne, and sausages. Organic versions of some Boca products appeared in 2001.

    Kraft Foods, the nation’s largest packaged foods company, announced in early 2000 that it had reached agreement to purchase Boca Burger, Inc., a privately held manufacturer and marketer of soy-based meat alternatives. The announcement was made when Kraft Foods was represented by Gordon James and Clifford A. Wolff. The products are sold nationally through retail grocery and club stores, natural foods stores and food service channels nationwide. Boca Burger, based in Chicago, IL, had 1999 revenues of about $40 million, almost double the previous year.[2]

    Love my boca’s on a light bun with pickle, mustard and ketchup. Nothing fancy, but I make them when the husband is eating a regular burger.

    I love the original vegan and the chik’n patties. Both are great low point (and healthy!) substitutes. Great giveaway!

    Your little workout pro is adorable! Love it.

    I’m a fan of the BOCA chili, although I heard from Hungry Girl that they may have stopped making it :( I also enjoy the regular vegan BOCA burgers on light wheat bread with a bit of ketchup. Yum!

    I am obsessed with the boca vegan burgers!! I love putting a slice of cheddar cheese and feeling like I’m eating a cheeseburger. So tasty!! :)

    Paula

    April 26, 2010

    I haven’t bought any Boca products yet. I checked their website and the Bruschetta Tomato Basil Parmesan would be tasty, I bet!

    I’m glad you are feeling better even if the weather is conspiring against you. And I think the extra accountability is great now…i’ve had to do the same thing.

    I recently went vegetarian because of health issues and I love the Boca Flame Grilled Patties and the crumbles to mimic ground meat. Hunni doesn’t even notice so saves me a headache.

    Kristi

    April 26, 2010

    What a great giveaway! I love using the Boca crumbles mixed with salsa to make tacos – YUM!

    Jess

    April 26, 2010

    I use boca burgers and make my own sauces to go with. Teriyaki tastes really good on them. They’re pretty tasty ground up and topped on salad too.

    Hooray for food journals. I always doodle random crap in mine. It’s become my little notebook of tangent thoughts.

    Melanie

    April 26, 2010

    Love the boca flame grilled burgers with lots of sauteed onions, deli mustard on a thin sandwich bun!! Guiltless treat is what I call it!!!

    Tami@nutmegnotebook.com

    April 26, 2010

    I eat Boca burgers all the time for lunch. I like to make a patty melt on sprouted bread with light cheese grilled in a skillet. Add some dill pickles slices and dip it in ketchup. YUM! I eat Boca burgers about 5 times a week and have for about 5 years!

    Rebecca

    April 26, 2010

    I always have the flame grilled bocas in my freezer. I take them in my lunch sack for work I like to use a western alternative onion bagel ad the bun.

    Shelley

    April 26, 2010

    April 26, 2010

    I have had the burger before and it was so good sprinkled with garlic and melted cheese on the top w/0 a bun. I would love to try the chicken ones with the whole wheat thins!

    I’ll admit it, I’m a Boca Virgin. But I’m an experienced cheapskate and would love to try anything new that’s free! ;) I have been blogging for about a month at www.Results-Not-Typical-Girl.com and I’m loving the extra accoutability and ideas I get from fellow bloggers. Thanks for the smiles and inspirations. And I LOVE your yoga model — what a stud! ;) Thanks again and hugs, Kirsten

    I love the crumbles scrambled with eggs, mushrooms, onions and spinach and stuffed inside half a pita. I’ll top it with whatever I have on hand, cheese, avocado, or salsa.
    I hear they make a lasagna now, and I would LOVE to try those.

    Corinne

    Love them without a bun and lots of veggies/mustard when I want a quick-fix for lunch that’s different that what the kids are eating. Thanks!

    April 26, 2010

    I would love to try the Boca burgers. I am trying to find new ways to get more protein into my diet since I dont eat meat. Thanks for the chance to win the Boca gift bag! I’m crossing my fingers! :)

    Carly

    April 26, 2010

    I like my Boca products very simply…put into my mouth!
    Seriously though, they’re mostly eaten around here grilled and on a bun, or microwaved if we’re super-rushed.

    Brandi

    April 26, 2010

    Being a small town farm girl I have always been a BIG real beef kind of person. I absolutely love it actually.

    BUT in my lifetime I have tried all kinds of fun stuff and BOCA burgers is definitely on that list. I can honestly say, for a non-meat based product they are actually really tasty. And a great substitute when you’re trying to watch your fatty food intake.

    I still have to have my ‘real beef’ once in awhile, but these really are a great substitute!

    I love Boca burgers! Great to have in the freezer for last minute dinners :)

    Veggie burgers are the only ones that dont make my tummy hurt. I wish I could eat a larger variety of them.

    April 27, 2010

    i saute thinly sliced onion, red, yellow, green and orange peppers in two teaspoons of olive oil. after they are cooked well, i add the boca burger. cheese may be melted over this as well. sometimes i will put it all on some brown rice and sometimes i eat it as is…oh and either way i add some plain old yellow mustard….delicious.

    Love boca burgers! I’m a vegetarian and sometimes these are just a lifesaver after a long day!

    Arlene

    April 27, 2010

    I love the Boca spicy chicken patty. I’ll eat it on a sandwich thin or light English muffin. I also liked the chili, which I’ve heard they’ve discontinued. As for flat out-burgers, I usually get Morningstar Farms for some reason. I’d gladly make a switch if I can win free stuff!

    Ibu

    April 27, 2010

    I haven’t tried any of Boca’s products and would love to do so.

    I like the idea of using them for damage control! I’ve never thought about that before, and look forward to trying some soon! :)

    Faith Plvan

    April 27, 2010

    Their burgers are fantastic! Better than beef!

    F. Plvan
    fsplvan@syr.edu

    Boca Burgers are my “go to” lunch. They are so easy and quick to pack and heat up at work! I love all of the varities of Boca products. I also use them as damage control…eating them for dinner the night before a heavier eating day or for lunch on a heavier eating night. :)

    April 27, 2010

    I LOVE Bocas! The flame grilled ones are a constant part of our dinner repertoire, and we do them on sandwich thins with ketchup, spicy mustard, and pickles. I usually do veggies or home baked fries on the side. So good.

    Janice

    April 27, 2010

    I have not had boca in a while but would love to try the flame grilled burgers. They sound good on the grill with some grilled veggies.

    Tina

    April 27, 2010

    I used to eat the heck out of Boca burgers when I was on Weight Watchers a few years back. There are a lot of recipes on Hungry Girl that include the crumbles, which I haven’t tried yet. So, I would like to try the newer and different forms of Boca!

    Mandi

    April 27, 2010

    I LOVE Boca burgers! On nights when the family has “real” hamburgers, I will throw one in the frying pan and warm it up, and fix it one of two ways: either topping it with some imitation crab meat and melting a piece of fat free sharp cheddar cheese on top or stir frying some onions and mushrooms and topping it with that and a slice of fat free swiss cheese…then wrapping it with a large lettuce leaf with a dab of fat free mayo and slice of fresh tomato. YUM!!!

    carmen

    April 27, 2010

    I love boca burgers for lunch and the crumbles make really good chili beans, nachos and spaghetti sauce. Oh and sloppy joes:)

    April Griffith

    April 27, 2010

    My husband and I love Boca products. Our favorite is the Chik’n Patty. We are also fans of the Grillers. We usually eat them for lunch on Saturday’s.

    PJ

    I have loved Boca since before Boca was cool! I love that they are so delicious and nutritious AND, that my kids love them too.

    THANKS for all you do!

    Anne

    April 27, 2010

    I love Boca! I used to be a vegitarian and would eat them all the time. I know always use them in place of a “hamburger” although I now eat meat! Good stuff!

    April 27, 2010

    they are a point saver for me for sure! i always eat one when the kids are eating regular burgers! i <3 1 point burgers!!!!

    I make my own “tv dinner” style lunches using BOCA burgers. I pack a bowl with one serving of brown rice (on the bottom), a layer of steamed broccoli, cauliflower, +carrots, and place a BOCA burger on top. It’s the perfect healthy, energizing, “tv dinner.”

    Christine

    April 27, 2010

    I like to grill a boca burger and top it with mushrooms and melted swiss. I don’t eat beef or pork, so it makes a BBQ more fun for me!

    Laura

    April 27, 2010

    I LUV Boca products. My favorite is the flame grilled burger. I enjoy making my own “big mac” at home. These are the best!

    Lisa

    April 27, 2010

    I haven’t tried Boca burgers yet, but would like to. I just recently tried turkey burgers with my family. I’m not sure I can get away with vege burgers, but I would certainly substitute my burger for one and try it.

    Ashley

    April 27, 2010

    Megan S

    April 27, 2010

    I’m trying to eat vegetarian one night a week so I keep a stash of Boca burgers in the freezer for an easy veggie dinner.

    Lisa

    April 27, 2010

    I like the Boca Chick’n – what a fun way to feel like you are eating something bad for you. The Tomato ones are also good – esp crumbled over a salad w/tomatoes and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese!

    Ramya

    April 27, 2010

    I love them just plain with a little sriracha sauce and steamed edamame beans on the side!

    The spicy Boca chicken patties – if I close my eyes – taste just like a Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwhich. Heaven on fake meat Earth!!!

    April 27, 2010

    I love them on the grill or crumbled up in chili.

    Erin

    April 27, 2010

    I love Boca burgers!!!! Fix them up just like your regular burger w/ all the fixin’s on a Arnold Sandwich thin – YUM!!!

    Mendy Gayton

    April 27, 2010

    I love my BOCA Burgers with just mustard & lettuce on a wheat sandwich thin. I have also chopped them up and put them in a wrap with leftover salad. Very yummy!! I like the Flame Grilled ones and the black bean. I also enjoy the Chick’n patties!! LOVE BOCA BURGERS!!

    allijag

    April 27, 2010

    I LOVE Boca! They can do no wrong in my eyes! My favorite are the boxes of regular Boca burgers they sell at whole sales clubs (like Costco!) They patties are bigger than the ones they sell in the regular grocery store – and they fit PERFECTLY on Arnold Thins! :)

    Deborah

    April 27, 2010

    I have been eating BOCA for years as well.. I lovelovelove the breakfast items.. I have even gotten my husband to like them and he is a die hard bacon eater. I just give him the “I want you to be around for along time” line and he is getting better about the bacon.. my favorite breakfast is protein waffles (oatmeal,egg whites,banana,almond butter.)with a couple BOCA breakfast links. I also take the burgers to work and so easy in the toaster oven..I can just eat them all alone right out of the oven.. Love your inspiration… I have funky weeks also and always work my way out of them eventually.

    Terri Schorp

    April 27, 2010

    Using Boca makes for a real low pt burger! I especially like the flame-broiled flavor.

    lori

    April 27, 2010

    I love Boca products! I am still lamenting that they discontinued their dinner sausages – they were THE BEST but I guess the demand wasn’t there and they don’t make ’em anymore. I still buy all of their other products though – been a vegetarian since I was a kid so I’ve had a lot of time to try all of the products out there. ;)

    Paula

    April 27, 2010

    I love Boca stuff. I eat their regular burgers with lunch nearly every day. They just taste so darn good! I also love their crumbles and make yummy chili with them when its cold out. Their chicken patties are yummy, too! I just LOVE Boca.

    Lisa

    April 27, 2010

    I have tried several products and have liked them all so far. I would love some new recipes using their products.

    Amy L.

    April 27, 2010

    LOVE Boca burgers! The original “Flame-Grilled” is my favorite, but I have yet to find one that I don’t like. My son prefers them to regular burgers, and I’ve even fooled my husband into believing he’s eating a real chicken pattya couple of times.

    Danielle S

    April 27, 2010

    Hi Roni –

    Thanks for another GREAT giveaway. I LOVE the flame grilled burgers with cheddar cheese – although hard to find now – but with all the summer BBQ’s the flame grilled patties def come in handy with all the veggie fixings!

    Thanks Roni
    Danielle

    April 27, 2010

    I have eaten a lot of the Boca burgers. I use the 100 calorie buns and then add mustard, lettuce, pickle, and tomato to it for a great burger. This makes me one to have one for lunch today….Yum

    Jen

    April 27, 2010

    I like the All American burgersjust as a burger on a bun, with cheese and all the fixings.

    Laura Cunnington

    April 27, 2010

    I’ve never tried Boca, but I’ve been really working hard on giving up red meat, so I’d be pretty interested in trying the burgers. That yoga mat is pretty freakin’ cool too!!

    Erica

    April 27, 2010

    Hello Roni – It is my first time commenting here, even though I have been reading your blog for years. I read Julie’s comment about the “The spicy Boca chicken patties – if I close my eyes – taste just like a Wendy’s spicy chicken sandwhich. Heaven on fake meat Earth!!!” and am totally intrigue to try them now, as that is one sandwich that I love and haven’t eaten in years.

    Patty

    April 27, 2010

    I love Boca Burgers. I enjoy all the varieties and have been eating them for years. Sometimes I will eat them on a bun or bagel. I also will put an egg on top, or put on top of a salad. They are delicious and nutritious!

    Amanda

    April 27, 2010

    All my years on WW, I’ve never tried them but I would love to!!! I’d love to throw some crumbles in chili and ‘fake’ everyone else out!

    Agnes

    April 27, 2010

    It’s funny but I have been thinking about Bocas lately! I don’t eat them regularily but come back to them every couple of months. They are very tasty and very low in points! I thinkin’ dinner….yum!

    Kelsey

    April 27, 2010

    I love boca. I am not a huge fan of the texture of hamburger, so boca has the perfect texture of meat without the grissle. I’m glad you are feeling better. I have been in the same funk. But I love reading your blog because it helps be recognize that it is JUST A FUNK. Thanks!

    Tyra

    This is too cool. I love BOCA!! I use it all the time for damage control and to bulk up some recipes as well. I will sneak the crumbles into my spaghetti sauce, Sloppy Joe’s or any other ground meat recipe and the husband has no idea that half the meat is soy…LOL I don’t know why I find so much joy in that – hee hee hee!!! :0) I have taken the the burger patties to my Grandaddy’s for Sunday cook-outs, and always keep them on hand for a quick lunch. They are a very good stock item in my opinion! Thanks Roni for all your information!!

    I’ve been eating boca burgers on sandwich thins3-5 days a week for lunch while loosing the weight I gained during pregnancy with my second child. She’s 7 months old and I’m only 5 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight! I’m 10 pounds away from my goal, but getting there. Bocas have been great for helping me keep my calories in check during lunch. I pair my burger with some veggies or a salad. Ialso use the crumbles in pasta bakes for dinners and my 3 year old gobbles it up – and my husband eats it and doesn’t complain out loud! :)

    I am a huge fan of Boca Burgers!! I have been eating them for a year now and LOVE them! I cook them in a pan with a little olive oil. I love them on a light bun or sandwich thin with a little hot sauce and some green olives! YUMMY!!

    April 27, 2010

    I’m a reader who’s been around awhile, but only just posted. This was too good an opportunity not to post, because I’ve been looking for a low-cal high-nutrition burger to substitute. I LOVE burgers, and I want something that’s tasty and a good change around from ground beef. I’m also in college so it’s hard to get these things in the dorm. But as I move out for the summer and into my own apartment to cook, I’ll plan on trying Boca products for sure.

    I use their burgers when the rest of the family is eating red meat. Excellent replacement and tastes just as great. Although, I DO cook them in the hamburger pan (with a little grease!) to help with the flavor.

    I love BOCA’s Grilled Vegetable Burgers on a 1 Point bun (like Thomas’ Bagel Thins) and some Stella Reduced Fat Blue Cheese crumbles (14g = 1 Point) and 1 cup of a Trader Joe’s brand Butternut Squash soup (1 point). Makes a great 4 point lunch meal!! Yumm!!

    I have been loving Boca burgers for a couple of years now (and have even “tricked” my husband in to loving them as well :)) For me I love grilling mine (grilled veggie and origianl vegan are my favs) on the george forman with some red onions and a slice of swiss. WIth the addition of some sweet potato fries – it is one of my favorite go to anytime meals!

    Kim

    April 27, 2010

    I love that boca yoga mat!!! I have been enjoying boca burgers before I even did weight watchers. I’ve always kept them in the freezer. I make them for my whole family actually. Even my kids enjoy them, on a bun with lettuce, mayo & cheese..sometimes some ketchup! I have been eating them several times a week lately. If not on a bun, I cook one on the stove with onions & yellow/orange/red peppers…the onions get carmelized & then all on a place with a little mustard. I feel I am eating so much of a meal but it is so low in points & calories. Very satisfying!!!

    Oops sorry about my previous incomplete comment :( I love BOCA patties in sandwiches :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!

    April 28, 2010

    I basically love all of the Boca products. I like the chicken patties with lots of fat free mayo lettuce tomato on a village hearth light bun.. I use the crumbles in egg bakes & pastas. I basically live off of the burgers. I buy them in bulk at sams club. It seems like I use those in everything from eggs, to wraps, to eating it on a bun. I love that I get to eat a “burger” for barely any points at all…

    Diane

    April 28, 2010

    I love the sandwhich thins and combined with a boca burger sounds perfect. The husband loves his regular high fat burgers (he can get away with it) and I never even thought about substituing a boca for myself instead. Thanks for the post!

    Sam

    April 28, 2010

    I have actually never tried any Boca products but would LOVE to! I was going to buy some this week, as I have decided to start counting points again and would love a low-point burger, we eat burgers a lot, especially while grilling in the summer, so this would be an excellent low point option for me :) .. Thanks for offering this give away!! I hope I win :)

    Karissa

    April 28, 2010
