Low carb burgers are a fast and easy way to get a simple meal on the table.
As many of you know, I’m working my way towards clean, low carb eating, and it really seems to be helping in many, many ways. I have my days where I get off track as all of us do. But overall, I’m sticking to it and really enjoying the benefits. I feel full longer, I don’t worry about fat intake the way I used to, I’m slowly losing some weight, and my blood sugar is in far better shape than it ever was. So no complaints here!
My biggest issue is making sure I have food and that I actually eat it. I’m not as hungry eating this way, but I’ve found that if I skip meals, the weight/fat loss comes to a screeching halt. Have been a clean eater for the past 4 years, you would think that I’d be more inclined to eat frequently. But the truth is, there are times when I really do not want to eat. So it’s certainly an adjustment. But I think in the long run, it will really help me reach my goals.
One of my fallback meals is a low carb turkey burger. Really, you can prepare these a million different ways. If you need a “bun”, portobello mushrooms are fantastic for that, as are larger pieces of lettuce or even slices of larger vegetables such as eggplant or a big zucchini. The possibilities are endless and totally customizable to your tastes. The photo above is my favorite. Something about a little salt and pepper on the tomato really hits a home run for me.
