Not only is the Low Carb SuperBun gluten free, dairy free and paleo (so that means there’s no grains used in this bun at all), but it’s also low in sugar and carbohydrates. In fact, Grill’d beef, chicken & lamb burgers on the SuperBun have less carbs than a single sushi roll!
For me it’s all about real food and whole ingredients, so there’s almond meal (that literally just means crushed up almonds) in the place of flour in this recipe as well as whole free range eggs, which are considered a “complete” food and a brilliant source of both protein (containing all our essential amino acids) and fats which makes for sustained and slow release energy. Eggs are also a brilliant source of B vitamins, which we need for not only energy production but also for combatting stress.
I also love that you don’t feel bloated after you have your burger on a Low Carb SuperBun as the ingredients are clean & don’t feel heavy. I don’t know about you, but when I eat out, I don’t want to undo all the good work I've done from exercising & eating well. So now when I come to Grill’d I know it’s really easy to order something that's low carb, & stay on track with my health goals.
There's also coconut cream in the Low Carb SuperBun recipe, now before you get worried about the fat content of coconut cream, yes this is a source of a saturated fat, but it’s a medium chain fatty acid that the body will try to use as energy before storing it.
The best news about the Low Carb SuperBun is that you can order it with any burger. It tastes great with all burgers on the menu but my ‘go-to' at Grill’d is the Nourish & Flourish burger on a Low Carb SuperBun. I’m also loving the new avo chippies, to me they are full of the good stuff and a great way to get good fats, fibre, protein, and phytochemicals (that’s just a fancy way of saying plant nutrients) in one meal.
When it comes to health and weight control, it’s all about avoiding the sugars and simple carbohydrates that convert very quickly to sugars. Keeping good fats in the diet means slower release energy and it has much less of an impact on blood sugar levels.
I reckon food is here to nourish you and to be shared with the people you love. So try out the Low Carb SuperBun next time you're at Grill’d, and their new avocado chips while you're there!
