IN-N-OUT... PROTEIN STYLE PLEASE
Everyone knows that December is a always a busy month with shopping and traveling, you tend to be 'ut and aboot (just practicing my Canadian for when we move to Vancouver next month - more to follow).
With traveling usually comes the unhealthy fast food dinner options filled with sugar and carbs. One pretty good option to eat a low carbohydrate (not low calorie) is at In N Out :) mmmmmm! Sorry for those that are not on the West Coast, since it is only available out here. On the menu they only have three options: Double Double, Cheeseburger & Hamburger, all with an option for a side of fries. What many people don't know is that you can get any of them "Protein Style" which means they substitute the high carb bun for a large piece of leaf lettuce. I always do a Double patty Hamburger. Pretty good and tasty option for PWD that are trying to watch carb intake. Happy Holidays and enjoy a protein style burger :)

Oh Jimbob - you would know best! haha. Funny thing was I was trying to google it, but couldn't really find the best phonetically Canadian correct pronunciation, but you nailed it :)
I know I should eat less carbs (even though I can afford to GAIN) a few pounds!) but I've always been a bit too self-conscious, too proud to order a burger without a bun. I can't see how a leaf of lettuce can hold a burger together, and don't want to eat a sandwich with a knife and fork. Not to mention...I'm paying for the bun.

Hi Scott - funny you say that because I complain about paying for the bun too and what makes it even worse, my wife orders a cheesburger with NO MEAT! Yes we are screwy. Haha. As far as is being messy, certainly more than a regular burger, but actually very easy to eat (just dont set down). In California it really isnt that rare to order without a bun, people are pretty progressive in diets (gluten-free, low carb, ect.) This helps when I am really hungry and ill get one with a bun and one without becuase too many carbs at once is tough.
