As the warmer weather comes and so does barbecue season. I’m expecting outdoor dining and cooking! Around our place there’s never a shortage of meat that is grilled on buns. What I’ve learned over the years is going topless! Be it a grilled burger, chicken breast or even pulled pork sandwich my fat loss surgery diet friendly burger is much better without the best bun. For starters, the very best bun takes an excess of space in the belly pouch of mine without supplying enough nutritional punch to surrender so much pouch real estate to it. Second, without an increased bun I am forced to politely eat my sandwich cutting it into minor bites with a knife as well as fork. Fork feeding slows me down! I can control my fork, resting it between bites, and consume at a slow relaxed pace instead of hand wrangle the burger of mine to devour it in rapid fire bites hardly understood before the pouch of mine is stuffed full. Try to go topless this grilling season and see exactly how this small change makes for a fantastic weight loss surgery food.
This’s one of my favorite meat barbecue meals because the slow cooker does the job for me. After a long day in the office I just have to set the picnic table and toss the salad in unison and dinner is served.
