Stay Safe Fit to Survive Hamburgers


Enjoying a juicy hamburger once in a while can be part of a healthy diet. If you've put your burger enjoyment on hold because you think they're too high in fat and cholesterol, there's good news. You can still enjoy a classic burger without expending your calorie and fat intake for the day. Executive Chef Bonnie Moore made a few simple changes to cut 300 calories, a remarkable 30 grams of fat and 13 grams of saturated fat!

Bonnie used lean ground beef sirloin instead of ground chuck, reduced the amount of beef, eliminated the cheese and chose fat free mayonnaise.
