Vegetarians existed in Ancient Egypt with an abundance of meat products. The cultural and social movement of the hippies contributed to development, dissemination of ideas of vegetarianism. Burgers without meat patties were invented by Gregory Sams. He and his brother Craig created the recipe, then began to actively promote the new item on the commercial market, starting with their own restaurant menu. Subsequently, the dish was popularized and appeared in popular fast-food chains. The holiday was created by Amy’s Kitchen, a company engaged in the production of a unique line of products.
Veggie burger is only part of a healthy diet, not its absolute basis.
