Black 'n Blue Bacon Cheeseburger (7)

Black 'n Blue Bacon Cheeseburger (7)
1 Arnold's Sandwich Thin®(1) - toasted if desired
4 oz. 95% Fat Free Black Angus Hamburger patty (4)
2 Tbls. fat free Feta cheese (0)
2 pieces center cut or turkey bacon (cooked crisp) (2)
A squirt of fat free Blue Cheese Dressing

Simply cook the beef patty to desired doneness. Slide burger onto the Arnold's Sandwich Thin®, add 2 slices of cooked center cut bacon, 2 Tbls. Fat Free Feta & a drizzle of fat free Bleu Cheese Dressing. You've re-created the Wendy's Bacon 'n Blue Burger ® without all the fat & calories!

My inspiration for this burger was the Wendy's Bacon 'n Blue Burger®. On their website this burger comes in with 680 Calories, 40g fat & 3g fiber! (16 points® *gasp*) Can you say a day's worth of fat plus some?!!! YIKES! My version is a MUCH more fat friendly, calorie friendly treat for 7 points®! Heck you could eat TWO and have 2 points® left at that rate!

Check out my Daily Menu Food Log for a quick glance at what I'm eating to get where I'm at, which is a healthier & therefore thinner ME! While I don't always keep it up to date.. I do give you some different ideas of what might help you change up your daily menu!

  1. Congratulations, on your remarkable weight loss. I have just begun my journey to get in shape and you are an inspiration.

  2. Congratulations on your weight loss success. I really enjoy your blog and the great recipes. I am in my 61st week of my weight loss journey and became a Life member last June after dropping 60 pounds. I'm still tracking and attending meetings to remind me to stay on track.

  3. Thanks Michelle & Hillman... I'm very human, fall off often but have finally begun to realize it's a LIFESTYLE not a diet. I honestly enjoy the new me and the new feeling of being in charge. I was out of control with food.

    I still LOVE food and refuse to give up things I love... just learning how to maintain a healthy approach at enjoying them!

    I love the challenge of taking something I think I'd LOVE but know it's unhealthy and re-creating it to be a healthy option!!!
