When it comes to ground meat (or most any meats for that matter), it's a simple equation: fat equals flavor and moisture.

It would follow then that a low-fat burger should be dry and tasteless, right? Not necessarily.

While it may be tempting to go for 90 or 95 percent lean ground beef or turkey when crafting a leaner burger, the results will be disappointing. A better choice is to use a juicier 85 percent lean meat and find other ways to cut the fat.

Q. I'm having some trouble sleeping and don't want to take pills. Do you have any suggestions?

Here are some pointers to help you get better sleep:

Ÿ Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. This will keep you in sync with your body's internal rhythm, which is affected by sunlight.

Ÿ Try to get some natural light each afternoon.

Ÿ Don't nap too much.

Ÿ Exercise daily, but finish your workout at least three hours before bedtime.

Ÿ Don't drink beverages with caffeine late in the day.
