Blissful Burger and Fries

Bake your favorite veggie burger patty, turkey patty, or 95% lean beef patty and add slices of tomato and low-fat cheese, if desired. Put on a whole-wheat bun or wrap in romaine lettuce. Go very light on the ketchup and heavy on the mustard or spicy mustard. Coat sweet potato strips in a little olive oil with a sprinkling of paprika and black pepper and bake for 20 minutes at 450 degrees. For dessert: nonfat Greek yogurt with frozen mixed berries and stevia. (Believe it or not, you can even get a booster burger at Carl's Jr. or Hardee's! Go for the Turkey Burger, which is served on a whole-wheat bun. Just hold the mayo and pour on lots of mustard and a touch of ketchup to taste. If you're starving, better to have two of these than to add a side of fries. Or pair with a side salad with light dressing.)
