The Ultimate Bunless Burger {paleo + gluten free}

Pretty sure your Wednesday dinner NEEDS this ultimate bunless burger!

The ultimate bunless burger! For those nights when you just NEED a burger in your life. Paleo, guilt free, and super satisfying.
 
I mean, how excited would you be about dinner tonight if this ⬆️ is what you were coming home to?

Especially if it’s as easy as forming some patties, seasoning ’em, searing ’em and loading ’em up with your favorite toppings.

The ultimate bunless burger! For those nights when you just NEED a burger in your life. Paleo, guilt free, and super satisfying.
 
There’s something about a burger that is so dang comforting and familiar. Perfect October food. Esp when the rain is coming down like it has been in Seattle. Gray skies are in full effect around here.

I have to say – I reaaaally really missed burgers when I gave up gluten and transitioned to a mostly paleo diet.

Obviously there’s gluten free (and even grain free) bun options out there for those who can no longer enjoy fluffy brioche rolls – (😭 yes I do still mourn the loss of these foods from time to time! I think that’s perfectly okay, and even healthy. Recognizing the weight of the thing that you’re giving up for health benefits has the ability to further strengthen your resolve and commitment to your positive lifestyle choices! They definitely have the ability to exist simultaneously and work in direct relation to each other), but it did take me awhile to find the same joy in them as I used to find in a classic OG burger.

Occasionally I do splurge in the gluten free bread option for a burger, but more often than not, I choose the bunless or lettuce wrapped option. I just FEEL better when I don’t have all those carbs added to an already indulgent meal.

This ultimate bunless burger = all the flavors of a classic burger and none of that heavy stomach feeling that can really weigh you down

 

AKA a guilt free win/win.

And now I’m here to tell you that this bunless burger will rescue you from any remaining bun-missing feels.

And that you can easily make it at home.

And that I SWEAR you won’t even think about what’s missing when you cut that first bite of this ultimate bunless burger, runny egg yolk and all.

spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado {paleo}

It’s the week of Cinco de Mayo which means… TACOS at our house (I bet I’m not the only one 😉!) More specifically we’ve been enjoying these spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado. So satisfying and so loaded with delicious flavor!

Spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos and avocado are super bold and umami packed paleo friendly tacos that are super versatile and easy to make!

Beyond it being Cinco de Mayo, it also happens to be the week of my sweetie’s birthday, and his love of Mexican food and the fact that it falls around Cinco de Mayo usually means mexican themed eats for his party.

So this last weekend while we celebrated there were tacos and a chopped salad with cilantro chipotle ranch. We drank lots of these margaritas from last week’s post, devoured a giant bowl of guacamole and dove head first into some mega spicy aguachile – a dish that I discovered on my recent trip to Mexico. It’s basically a super spicy, cilantro loaded shrimp ceviche. When I tried it for the first time I almost did a backflip! It was so good I’m seriously considering sharing my recipe for it with you here soon.

But I’m totally getting ahead of myself. Back to these spicy thai marinated skirt steak tacos with avocado!
