Portland burger week

So this week,  Nicky Farms ( a high quality local meat distributor) is teaming up with the Portland Mercury and 13 local restaurants to offer $5 specially created burger masterpieces. This is a one week offering with 13 options to try. 
As a foodie my initial reaction is I MUST TRY THEM ALL!  As a weight and health conscious woman my initial reaction is “this is cool but I won’t be able to try them”. Where do we draw the line in food exploration so that we can help open up the amazing world of fine crafted foods to our public without sacrificing our bodies?  Can you be both a foodie and a health conscious “dieter” at the same time? 

These are my musings for today.
