Ted's Montana Grill's Skinny Dip Bison Burger

Want a more health-conscious burger but can't give up the meat? Bison (or buffalo) has fewer calories and less saturated fat than beef, says Brooking, making it a good substitute for picky carnivores.

At this chain founded by media mogul Ted Turner, you can order any burger with beef or bison meat. The Skinny Dip bison sandwich, served on an oat-and-wheat bun and topped with avocado slices, will run you 606 calories, 29 grams of fat (7 grams saturated), and—watch out!—1,973 milligrams of sodium; go bunless to save 210 calories and 360 milligrams of sodium.
