Udi's Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns Are Delicious!

Hamburger on Udi's Gluten-Free Bun!
Today I was supposed to be making pulled pork for dinner, but circumstances conspired against me. Instead, I went grocery shopping with a grocery list that accounted for every meal EXCEPT today's dinner.  I was strolling down the aisle of my co-op trying to figure out what to make when up popped Udi's GF hamburger buns!  I'd been waiting so long for these buns that I forgot they were coming out this month.

With all this exercise you're doing for The Movement Project, do you feel like a hamburger?  I know I did!  Ben likes BBQ blue cheese bacon burgers, and who am I to refuse the man a luscious burger when I can eat mine on a real bun?

Udi's makes the most wheat-like hamburger buns I've ever had (and no, Udi's isn't paying me to say that). Firm on the outside, chewy on the inside, they make me excited about BBQ season.  Gone are the days of wrapping my hamburger in lettuce or between soggy slices of bread!

The hamburger buns, like most GF products, are quite small, which makes for convenient portion control. The dietitian in me feels compelled to point out that massive quantities of meat, even grass-fed beef, is pro-inflammatory and not good for you.  On my burger you'll see bacon, but you'll also see sprouts with a side of baby carrots.  Enjoy your burger, but add the veggies!

Try 'em.  Let me know what you think!


  1. How in the world can you advocate a bacon cheeseburger on a blog called Foodwise Nutrition? You've lost all credibility with me.

  2. I can't wait to try this! Ignore the other post. Clearly he/she doesn't understand the joy of eating everything with moderation...especially when you haven't had a hamburger on a bun for a decade.
