Now, this avoidance of flour products makes eating things like wraps and burgers at home challenging. However, I’ve figured out a decent substitute for buns and such – lettuce! Yes, the lovely, large leaves of a Red-Leaf or Romaine are tasty and easy to work with, plus it’s an extra “veggie” serving. I’m not talking Iceberg lettuce here – it has to be a darker green leaf type. Even chard would do! So healthy!
I just finished a very yummy, albeit messy, venison burger, from Vancouver Island deer (22grams of protein, 7grams of fat, and 157 calories), my home-made organic hummus, organic romaine lettuce, organic local sunflower sprouts, organic avocado, local cheese, and a little mayo (the only “bad” thing in the burger). It was easy to put together – just cook the patty, add the cheese, and layer into the lettuce leaves.
I could see this becoming a tasty habit!
