If you’re anything like me, you’re down for a bomb ass burger. Whenever I go to a restaurant, especially a sketchy one where I know it will be challenging to eat healthy, I always order a burger with no bun. If they f*ck up a naked ass burger, they shouldn’t be in business. And I’ve experienced that quite a few times. But at least I didn’t go home feeling like complete crap from the bun. Ya win some, ya lose some. When you order a burger with no bun, it’s pretty much like a burger bowl. They just don’t serve it in a bowl. Idiots. What I like about bowls is that you can cut up everything to the same size and mix it all together. Then it’s this happy parade of flavors with every single bite. It’s a lovely experience. Unless you’re one of those people who hate when their food is touching. Get outta here, man. You’re better than that. You’re a grown up!
I used to be the PICKIEST eater growing up. I would barely eat anything unless it was MacD’s or a Dairy Queen blizzard. Those were the good ole days. The days before I found out that my body was killing itself from the inside out by consuming these foods regularly. I also had the same hatred for my food touching. I think that’s a pretty normal for a child. But as I get older, I find it so funny that so many adults have the same tendencies as kids. They hate certain foods, they don’t like their food touching, and they won’t try anything new. What the hell? I feel like this is something we are all suppose to move past as we age. I hate me some liver, but I’ll sure as hell try it if it is offered. Because I’m a grown up with ever-changing taste buds. But when someone tells me that their husband won’t try certain things they make because they are a picky eater…oh man. That makes me want to fight a b*tch. Knock it off, people!! Mush that food together!
Speaking of annoying semi-grownup weirdos, have you guys been watching the new season of Bachelor in Paradise?? I didn’t watch the last Bachelor or Bachelorette because I just couldn’t commit that much time to people who bored the hell out of me, but now I’m back in. The trash drama is too good to turn away from. 4 hours of trash TV per week? Why not? It’s summer! Which really means nothing because since I no longer have a summer break, but whatevs. There is so much making out, so much hooking up, and now, so much fighting. Watching grown men try to fight each other in slippery sand is magical. And this whole Jordan-Demi friendship is GIVING ME LIFE. I literally LOL at their judgy comments. Maybe I could have them guest post on the blog. Fingers crossed.
Now on another completely separate note, because that’s how my brain works, I’m currently in depression mode. Why? Because I found that house of my dreams, even though I really didn’t have any house dreams before I saw this place, and it went under contract a day after we walked through it. We’ve been talking about looking for a different house for approximately 6 minutes and I found this house on a whim when I was too lazy to get my work done and was just scrolling through the internet. We walked through it the next day and I fell in love hard. I’m still hoping that something falls through with the new owners, but that’s obviously just wishful thinking, not realistic thinking. And now no other house comes close to this one. You guys, I legit cried when I found out this house sold. What is wrong with me? I either truly fell in love with an inanimate object or I’m still detoxing the hormones from getting off of birth control. Either way, it’s been a week and I’m still fully depressed. Will I ever get over it? Probably, but maybe not. Excuse me, I need to get another good cry in. Kloveyoubyyyyyyyye.
- Prep Time: 25 minutes
- Cook Time: 25 minutes
- Total Time: 50 minutes
- Yield: 4 1x
- 4 yukon gold potatoes, cubed
- 3 tablespoons Primal Kitchen High Heat Avocado Oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 strips of bacon
- 1 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 tablespoon Primal Palate Meat & Potato Seasonings
- 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Garlic Aioli
- 2 tablespoon coconut milk
- pinch of salt
- 1 head of butter lettuce
- 1 large heirloom tomato, cut into 4 slices
- 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup dill pickle chips
- Cube potatoes in small pieces. You want these pieces to be small and cubed evenly to help with reducing cooking time and evenly cooking throughout. In a bowl, toss potatoes in Primal Kitchen High Heat Avocado Oil and then add salt, and toss. Place potatoes inside wire basket of air fryer and spread evenly throughout. Close air fryer then turn temperature on air fryer up to 400 degrees and time up to 25 minutes and press start. Keep an eye on the time because you will want to pause the air fryer every 5 minutes and toss the potatoes to make sure they cook evenly throughout. Once finished cooking, sprinkle with a little extra salt on top while still hot.
- While the potatoes cook, place bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes per side, until crispy. Set aside on a paper towel.
- In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the ground beef with meat & potato seasonings until combined. Pour into 4 large patties and pat them down to make them pretty flat. Add burger patties to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness and how you like your burgers.
- While the burgers cook, in a small bowl mix together garlic aioli, coconut milk, and salt until combined.
- Once the burgers are done cooking, build the bowls – butter lettuce on the bottom, then a slice of heirloon tomato, burger patty topped with garlic crema, a few slices of red onion, some dill pickle chips, and a big of plop of crispy potatoes. Eat up!

Totally feeling you on the house front! I walked through a home a few years ago with my then boyfriend that we absolutely just loved for us. I put in a bid and ultimately lost because someone with cash walked in and scooped it right up! Who exactly has that kind of unencumbered cash available?! Fast forward a few years later – boyfriend and I are now married – finished my MBA – we added a frenchie to the family…..and that SAME house was back up on the market. We had been calling that house “the one that got away” for those years in between. We rush over there for the open house – drafted a heartfelt letter to the owners to accompany our bid. And…..we lost, again. I was totally depressed. But in the end, it wasn’t meant to be. So, I feel ya…and it’s ok to feel let down. What is meant for you will come! Now, I need to go make this burger bowl and swirl it all together making those non food touchers turn away!
ughhhhhh it’s so hard to see it like that right now! each day i keep waking up super bummed that it’s gone and nothing else comes close to it. did you find a sweet place since then??
Yes! Bless you for trash talking picky eaters. It’s such a pet peeve of mine. People- you are stuck. You forgot you’re not 10 anymore. Find a new way to be an individual. Even if you try something and don’t like it, you’ll be ok. It must be so stressful to navigate a world full of food that you “can’t eat”. Life is hard enough. Let the world share her bounty with you. ❤️
omg it’s THE WORST!!
