Eight Ideas for Hamburger Buns for Low-Carb Weight Loss
What would you do if you were able to have as much bread as you wanted? Specifically, what if you could have as many hamburger buns as you wanted? The question is not just hypothetical because Carb-Free Hamburger Buns are carb-free and have 14 grams of protein each. Here are eight ways you can use them to stay on your diet while loving life.
If a burger on a piece of lettuce isn’t your thing, Carb-Free Hamburger Buns can help. The burger is still low-carb when piled high with a patty, cheese, lettuce, and tomato, and grilled onions and mushrooms are also good options. Using a ground turkey or a veggie burger and low-fat cheese can reduce the calories.
Why not lose weight with a burger for breakfast? A Carb-Free Hamburger Bun with egg whites, low-fat cheese, and a slice of pineapple can weigh in at under 250 calories. If you have a few calories to spare, avocado slices and a meatless breakfast burger can add flavor and oomph.
Garlic Bread (with cheese)
Carb-Free Hamburger Buns, spread with butter or olive oil and flavored with fresh garlic or garlic powder plus spices such as oregano and thyme, can turn into delicious garlic bread when you bake or toast them. Better yet is a gooey cheesy treat if you add shredded mozzarella before baking it.
Toasted regular or cheesy garlic bread made with Carb-Free Hamburger Buns can be broken into smaller pieces to use as croutons to top salads and soups. They can make the meal heartier and healthier.
How can bread pudding, a sweet comfort food based on starch and sugar, be part of your weight loss day? Carb-Free Hamburger Buns make it possible by substituting for high-carb bread. Other ingredients can include milk or cream, eggs, calorie-free sweeteners, and sugar-free syrup, vanille extract, or spices for flavoring.
Carb-Free Hamburger Buns make a great substitute for noodles and rice in your favorite casseroles, such as broccoli and cheese, tuna, and spaghetti. They can add not only texture and volume, but also flavor, when spritzed with olive oil and seasoned with spices before use.
PB and J
Sticking to a weight loss diet can get you down if you have to give up old favorites, so why give them up? Carb-Free Hamburger Buns spread with Protein Peanut or other Nut Butter are still low in carbs and can bring you back to the carefree days of PB and J sandwiches. For a sweet touch, Walden Farms Calorie-Free Fruit Spread, in Apricot, Strawberry, Cranberry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Orange Marmalade, Apple Butter, or Grape, adds zero grams of carbs. Fresh fruit is another sweet option, and it adds fiber and antioxidants.
Carb-Free Hamburger Buns make a great base for any kind of sandwich. The sandwich can be low-carb and high-protein with sliced turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato and mustard, or with tuna salad made with yogurt, celery, and diced tomatoes. Hummus with sprouts is a plant-based option.Carb-Free Hamburger Buns come in packs of 6 buns and you can purchase a single bag or a 6-bag pack.
