    These all sound so good! I try to eat healthy, but every once and while beans don’t seem to cut it, and I have a serious craving for meat! To help give me the protein I need without the extra fat I don’t want, I began selling a kitchen tool called “get along the crazy burger” that can take up to 50% of fat out of cooked hamburgers quickly, and without affecting their taste.
