Everyday we are looking for new ways to eat good tasting food whilst still keeping calories and fat intake to a minimum. But a few people have taken things a little too for some people to cope with; would you like a burger with your lettuce?
People have opted for swapping their burger buns for… lettuce. That’s right, they are wrapping their burgers in lettuce to eliminate carbs. And not everyone is impressed by the idea. However, I for one, think it’s a pretty sweet idea… Please don’t hurt me.
I googled fun recipes for hamburger meat w no buns and they showed me a hamburger with lettuce buns…. I. AM. APPALLED.

Dressed that amazing veggie burger up with a lettuce wrap, tomatoes, pickles, jalapeños and tortilla chips for some crunch. The whole point… pic.twitter.com/UYEG38Sunc

Those burgers ppl eat that have lettuce buns are called "I wanna show off being healthy by doing the most instead of just eating a salad"

Hamburger buns are too puffy to eat – I like my smashed meat wrapped in wet lettuce

I've cut out bread (especially white) from my diet mostly so my idea of a hamburger is like the patty with lettuce buns or just the patty…

Jack's reaction to me using lettuce instead of buns for our veggie burgers was one of pure hurt and betrayal

Hmm, mixed results. I personally think it’s a great way to enjoy your favourite burger whether that be chicken or beef, without consuming too many calories at least.
