No matter where I go for a burger, they’re more than happy to wrap my burger in lettuce and leave the bun aside. The typical hamburger bun is 110-150 calories, over 200 mg of sodium, 3-5 g sugar, 2-3 g fat, and definitely not paleo. An ounce of iceberg lettuce is less than 10 calories, less than 10 mg sodium, 1 g sugar, and 0 fat, not to mention a little omega 3. The choice is clear. No bun is a way to drop calories and other harmful components. Restaurants are more than happy to make the substitutions for you. If it’s a sit down place, I ask them to serve the burger on a bed of greens. Look for other gourmet burger add-ons to make your burger a healthy choice. Grilled vegetables, onions, and mushrooms are usually available. Always look for grass fed beef for a better omega 6/3 ratio (see favorite links). Costco has ground bison available most of the time, which I use regularly. I’ll also add a seasonal vegetable. This week, I’m on a squash kick, so that was a given. Design your own, beautiful breakfast burger. Just leave the buns on the grocery shelf.
