A burger that celebrates whole-food ingredients. This is the perfect, wholesome way to enjoy a gluten free burger. We swap the refined carbohydrate bun for a whole-food alternative that provides complex carbohydrates – sweet potato.

If you love sweet potato, you’ll love the sweet potato toast and toppings in my Nourish From The Inside Out Online Program or the sweet potato rostis (like healthy hash browns) in my recipe e-book.

Nourish 101:

  • Sweet potato is a rich source of fibre and complex carbohydrate that raises blood sugar levels slowly when compared to fast digesting carbohydrates such as refined flours found in breads and buns.
  • Sweet potato is the perfect swap for a refined carbohydrate bun making your burger not only gluten free/ grain free/ paleo but also made with whole food ingredients that nourish.
  • They provide a healthy dose of carbohydrates necessary for energy production and to support a balanced diet.
  • Sweet potatoes are also rich in beta-carotene, vitamins A, C and B6 and provide some of best nutrient values among the root-vegetable family.
  • Lamb or beef mince provides a quality source of iron-rich protein. Protein is great to keep you feeling satisfied and reduce sweet cravings.
