Week 7: Burgers. (That’s right, BURGERS.)

And for my next trick, watch me lose weight eating burgers.

That’s right, BURGERS.

I didn’t think it was possible, but Chef Brian says it’s so, and he’s put together a menu that exercises portion control over leaving out the good stuff (like bacon).

Talk about an early Christmas present! Check these burgs out:

Meal 1: Beef burger with bacon, caramelized onion compote, arugula and over-easy egg

Meal 2: Turkey burger with balsamic onions, basil yogurt, tomato, and greens

Meal  3: Lamb burger with grilled red onions, feta, bell pepper yogurt, tomato, and greens

Our list is good for two portions of each meal. I double mine so I always have leftovers for the next day.

The shopping list is after the jump.
