Big Mouth Paleo Burger: Take a Bite!

This weekend we will celebrate the dads in our lives, and what better way to show our love and appreciation than a burger that requires two hands and a stack of napkins!

And the best part is that it’s healthy. Our board-certified holistic nutritionist Lee Bell has done it again, proving that food can be delicious and nutritious. This meal also includes two bonus recipes for a creamy Dijon vinaigrette and sweet caramelized onions that you can use to top your burger.

Check out this dad-approved favorite!
