Ultra-Lean Bacon Cheeseburger
Bacon cheeseburgers are a guilty pleasure. But this recipe from Devin Alexander, the ingenious chef behind books like The Most Decadent Diet Ever!, will prevent you from being convicted of bad eating. "Just don't cheat when buying your beef," says Alexander. "This burger is made with 96% lean meat. Some people think buying 93% lean is about the same, but you gain calories and fat."
