Who else would agree with me that summer is amazing because it is also grilling season?? I love burgers, and I am so excited how these Paleo Jalapeño Ranch Burgers turned out! My ranch seasoning and jalapeños are probably two of my favorite things, and I thought they would make a great combo. Then I topped the burger with my Sriracha Ranch Coleslaw and wedged it into a sweet potato “bun.” I love using sweet potatoes rounds as burger buns, not only because they actually hold up like real burger buns but I like the added sweetness to the jalapeño ranch burgers! Another great option for buns if you aren’t a fan of sweet potatoes is lettuce wraps. This is one of the only times I think it is perfectly acceptable to use iceberg lettuce.
So I have officially lived in Colorado for one month! It doesn’t quite feel like it though because I work from home, and I don’t get out near as much as I would like. Whenever I move to a new city, I start to learn more about it by driving to and from work. Now since I don’t have that, I have to rely on riding to dinner or going to the grocery store for my exploring. I am slowly exploring further and further away from my home, and so far, I really like Denver! There are so much paleo-friendly restaurants, and always something new to explore. From quick drives up to the mountains to evening strolls through one of the many parks, I am quickly adapting to this outdoor lifestyle! Nearby there is a pond or reservoir (I’m not really sure which) that has paddle boarding, and I am dying to try. I’ve never paddle boarded, but it looks like so much fun!
