Burgers can be gluten-free, too.

Gluten-free and low-carb often go hand-in-hand, but when it comes to barbecue favorites such as burgers, that often means enjoying them literally out of your hands.

While there are plenty of gluten-free alternatives for hamburgers and buns at the store, there’s not a guarantee that they’re going to taste good. Taste aside, though, they’re also often guilty of being high in carbohydrates and high in calories, making your quest for eating healthy entirely pointless.

It’s time to start thinking outside the bun when it comes to our burgers, and to enjoy them in a gluten-free and healthy way. Portobello mushrooms are a favorite vegetarian substitute for the actual burger itself, but they don’t make a poor bun choice, either.

Starchy potatoes, while gluten-free, still offer those satisfying and filling qualities a bun is known for, and you may never have thought of serving them with a burger inside, but you definitely will now.

Burgers are a summertime hit and should be able to be enjoyed by everyone, even those who follow a gluten-free diet.
