Get yourself a good quality burger with a high meat content – preferably 95 percent or higher. Cook it on the grill until it’s done to your liking, then place it between two crisp, firm lettuce leaves. This works amazingly well – the leaves give it a great crunch, mean you can hold it like a burger, and you won’t miss the bun at all. For dressings, add some deli mustard, hot sauce, or some low sugar ketchup.
By now you should hopefully realize that Summer dieting shouldn’t be an issue, in fact, be grateful! There is so much tasty, healthy food on offer during the Summer months, that you can make your diet healthier, and even more delicious than normal, simply by swapping your normal food for some smart Summer snacks.
