On today’s post, I’ll give a very a good tip for those following a low carb (or non-strict paleo diet), or that could have some sort of gluten intolerance: the Grill’d Low Carb Bun. According to their website, the bun has less than 9g of carbs (they don’t specify whether it’s net carbs, though) and is made of free range whole eggs, almond meal, coconut cream, water, tapioca flour, honey, psyllium husk and salt. The bun is Gluten, Grain, Dairy Free and NO SUGAR!
It is also written on their walls that they keep sugar to a minimum on their regular burgers, adding it only to some dressings or dips, for example, the Sweet Chilli Mayo.
Ah, you can have the bun with any of their burger options available. So, it is just a matter of not going crazy and picking a healthy one as well. 🙂
For that day I’ve decided to get my burger on a low carb bun (you know, quality assurance purposes :P) with some sweet potatoes chips (not low carb, but hubby ate most of them :P). So the choices were:
- Almighty burger in a low carb bun: Grass-fed lean beef, tasty cheese, crispy trim bacon, free range egg, a couple of slices of beetroot with salad, relish, herbed mayo, and extra avocado (21.8 g of carbs).
- Sweet potato chips to share, and herbed mayo.
I don’t know about you, but I really don’t miss bread at all. However, I do feel that eating a burger wrapped in a lettuce leaf (or similar) is definitely not the same experience. So, although this bread is very simple, I really liked to have a burger in a similar way as everybody else in the restaurant.
I would totally go there again to try different burgers flavours with this bun. About the sweet potato chips … well, there is no way to go wrong with sweet potatoes, right? They were yummy, but I wish they had a baked version available as well.
