A growing number of people have given up bread for a good reason. If you are unable to bake it yourself, then your options to eat a loaf of healthy bread are very limited.
The good news is that there are ways to enjoy and even enhance your favorite burgers or wraps without having to worry about finding bread that does not harm your body.
You will want to save the ideas suggested below because once you try them, you are going to forget all about your packaged bread obsession-you will simply “retire” it! After tasting these, they just might occupy your plate more often than you have originally planned. Don’t complain we didn’t warn you about it!
1. Cucumber subs
Breakfast? Maybe lunch? How about an after dinner snack? Cucumber is vitally necessary for hydration – especially in the summer months. Combine the green with some of your favorite sauces and meats for a scrumptious, healthy snack.
2. Barbecue Salmon-Lettuce Wraps
Stuffed with the goodness of Omega-3, Salmon is perfect for a healthy wrap. Grill the fish and chop them into some fresh lettuce before exquisitely pouring over a taste of your favourite, most beloved dressing. Simple!
3. Red Bell Pepper Sandwich
300%. That’s the figure that corresponds to the amount of your daily Vitamin C intake within a red pepper. Not only that, it also helps with iron deficiency. Stuff your sliced pepper with cheese, avocado and anything else you would deem appropriate to have yourself an incredibly tasty, and healthy sandwich!
4. Paleo Sweet Potato Buns
Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet-tasting, but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain. If you combine them with some berry filling, you will get a bun that is sweet and delicious for a change.
5. Grilled eggplant sandwich
Eggplant is a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1 and copper. It is a good source of manganese, vitamin B6, niacin, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. Eggplant also contains phytonutrients such as nasunin and chlorogenic acid.The incredibly versatile eggplant works in everything from Italian to Asian recipes. Bonus: it makes a tasty substitute for burger meat, too. So your “newborn burger” will not only look different, but it will also taste much different.
6. Gluten-free tapioca wraps
Grown in the tropics, the cassava or tapioca plant produces a fleshy edible root stock. A nutritious starch is extracted from cassava and formed into “pearls”. Although it may be loathed by the older generation, younger people should still know that tapioca is a staple in many cuisines.
7. Plantain tortillas
It’s exactly what it says on the tin! This plantain tortilla is perfect to wrap around your cheeses, meats and any other filling you can possibly think of. They’re great for anyone scouting for a healthy, simple bread replacement.
8. Tomato-Avocado Fantasy Burgers
Slice a big red tom in half and put some mini-burger meat in the between it. It sounds simple, and it is. Chop up some avocado and stuff it into the shell of the tomato and add your own layer of cheese if you deem necessary. Tomatoes contain a vast amount of brilliant antioxidants as well as a galloping array or nutrients. Forget your typical burger bun.
9. Portabella Halloumi Burgers
Into mushrooms? Then this burger is going to set you right off. A combination of the 66 calories per 9 ounces Portabella mushroom and the textured, firm, grilled halloumi will set anyone swinging with succulence.
