AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Marvin | June 22, 2018 |
Happy Friday Ascend family! It’s summer, and if you’re anything like me you’re celebrating the warm weather with (too) many BBQs. But though burgers are a great source of protein, the gluten packed buns can mess up your diet. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes you should allow yourself to enjoy the whole package: French fries, ketchup and a wheat bun. We all need and deserve that sometimes, especially when we eat clean 80% of the time. However, if burgers are a regular staple, I have a healthier alternative for you.
So let’s talk about how we can enjoy burger buns without any guilt. The goal of the recipe is to cut the gluten out of the bun. It’s not a new idea. There are several recipes that use almond flour instead of wheat flour. But today we’re going to create something else… Something incredible!
To do so, I’ve taken our favorite root vegetable: the sweet potato, and mashed it together with some other cool ingredients to create our own version of the Ascend Body burger bun. Sweet potatoes are great for your eye health, and the nutrients inside help create red blood cells and antibodies (for your immune system). There are so are many reasons why you should incorporate the sweet potato into your next burger. But enough science for now, let’s get into the recipe ;).
