Nothing says summer like a backyard cookout. Learn how to tailor yours to the dietary needs of your guests! Even if you don’t have any allergies or sensitivities, it can be fun to shake up the usual menu.
Veggie burgers are offered on menus across the country and around the world, and there’s no single way to make them! You can make a smoky black bean burger, a fresh garden burger or even opt for a ready-made option.
Luckily, the only thing that adds gluten to burgers is the bun, which can easily be remedied with a gluten-free alternative like an almond, millet, or rice flour bun. If you want to avoid the bun entirely, you can opt for a lettuce wrap or enjoy your patty with a fork and knife alongside a salad, fries, or veggies.
Similarly to gluten-free eaters, people on the keto diet only have to worry about the bun. Get creative with your burger and try it on a low-carb flatbread or assemble the famous keto classic: a bell pepper sandwich.
Since people on the paleo diet avoid processed foods, sugar, soft drinks, grains, most dairy, legumes, artificial sweeteners, vegetable oils, margarine, and trans fats, backyard cookouts can be difficult to navigate. Luckily, you can make your own paleo hamburgers and not have to worry about any hidden ingredients, since you’ll add them all in yourself.
