Buns with Benefits

Go (leafy) green

It’s a simple truth: Iceberg lettuce isn’t a leading leaf in the produce section. While it may have been bumped from your bowl to make room for its more nutrient-packed cousins (mesculun greens, spinach and kale), its leaves make a great bun. An iceberg wrap can be easily held and helps keep burger toppings neat and tidy. Place a patty in the center of a large leaf, add preferred toppings and carefully pull its edges over the top. And contrary to popular belief, iceberg does still deliver some healthy goodness (including thiamin, vitamin B6, Iron, fiber, potassium and antioxidants). Plus, it boasts a high-water content, so you get some hydration along with the delish burger.
