The AOC Burger Challenge

Ever since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner” I have been thinking about whether I have ever eaten a hamburger for all three meals in the same day.

I know that I have often had a hamburger for both lunch and dinner, but not really too often.

So, I decided to take up the challenge and have a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Today I had the day off, so thought it would be a good day to take the challenge.

Breakfast Burger, AOC Burger Challenge, Waffles and BurgerI knew that I probably would not easily find a hamburger on the breakfast menu of a restaurant, so decided that for breakfast I would make a waffle burger at home.

This was a nice variation of a hamburger which I may have to try again some day. But, maybe not for breakfast.

Wendy's Burger, Double Stack, OAC Burger ChallengeFor lunch I went to Wendy’s after visiting the library.

I had a double stack burger and a cup of chili. Not too heavy of a lunch as usually I would order two of these burgers for lunch if I wasn’t having a spicy chicken sandwich when going to Wendy’s.

Double-Double, In-N-Out, AOC Burger Challenge, FriesIf you are going to do a burger challenge in California, then one of them should be from In-N-Out. This evening I went to In-N-Out and had a Double-Double with fries.

How do I feel after all the burgers today? Well, altogether it was probably less beef than eating a normal sized steak for dinner. However, it was a lot of carbs with two buns and two waffles. I will have to see what the scale reads tomorrow.

I can now say that I have eaten a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner in the same day. I doubt that very many people have actually done this.

I have read that on average an American eats three hamburgers a week. It is not often that I will eat that many hamburgers in a week, and sometimes I will go weeks without even eating one.

Challenge completed!
