Portobello Cheeseburgers
Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 4 (4-inch) portobello caps

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic

  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise

  • 4 (2-ounce) sandwich rolls

  • 2 cups trimmed arugula

  • 1/2 cup sliced bottled roasted red bell peppers

Directions
  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle mushrooms with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until tender, turning once. Add garlic to pan; sauté 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

  2. Combine cheese and mayonnaise, stirring well. Spread about 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture over bottom half of each roll; top each serving with 1/2 cup arugula and 2 tablespoons peppers. Place 1 mushroom on each serving, and top with top halves of rolls.

  3. Note: Portobello mushrooms are well-paired with pungent Gorgonzola cheese. Use crumbled blue cheese to save even more time

Bread again? What is wrong with eating all this without the bun?

If you are already insulin and leptin resistant grains will raise your
insulin and leptin levels, which is a major driver of most chronic diseases.
Besides, most whole grain products on the market are highly processed, which
further deteriorates their value.

Intake of grains should be as close to ZERO as possible. Dr. Sears wrote recently that eating grains is true for birds, not for us.

Grains:
- make us fat,
- elevate our blood glucose leading to diabetes,
- give us gluten (i.e. GLUE) that creates plaque in arteries and brain blood vessels and leading to leaky gut and in some the Celiac disease,
- give us inflammation that is the root cause of most chronic diseases like diabetes, heart diseases, arthritis, Alzheimer's and more.

Google it.
