    In a pinch a burger without the bun from McDonald's is okay. I wouldn't choose it for myself unless I was desperate. It's not exactly quality meat. I once read a post on Archevore that said if he eats that kind of meat he will take some cod liver oil (for the omega-3...to balance the Omega-6 in the factory meat).

    "Any day we eat factory meat or get a big dose of n-6 PUFAs in restaurant food (Mcdonald's burger without bun, barbecued store bought chicken, restaurant eggs fried in vegetable oil) we each take 1 teaspoon of Carlson's cod liver oil."

    I eat burgers all the time. Cooked at home. Ground beef is, as far as I can tell, primal enough. And it's a big plus that you don't eat the awful, grain based, buns.

    Do you get fries also? That would not be primal. Potatoes are at best borderline, and if you are concerned about your weight, they have way too many carbs to fit into the PB. Plus, they are cooked in very nasty oils.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    No, you'll have to blend them up and drink them with a straw so you don't get rewarded. Seriously, I enjoy bunless burgers at home, with all the fixin's (home-made condiments and pickles -no sugar) They sure are nice piled high with peppers and cucumber slices.

    You might want to grab a pack of pre-mixed salad greens or veggie sticks from a regular grocery store.

    I make a fantastic burger bowl at home:

    cooked ground beef seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
    top with chopped onions, tomatoes, and lettuce, lots of Bubbie's dill pickle relish, dijon mustard and homemade mayo.

    grassfed - absolutely.
    grainfed - mostly.

    McDonalds - hard to trust.

    Just play the cards your dealt.
