I’ve got to say while I am excited for the 4th of July holiday weekend I can’t believe how fast this summer is FLYING by…who knows maybe the rain will stop sometime soon!!!

How many of you have some parties and celebrations this weekend and while you want to enjoy yourself you don’t want to undo all the hardwork you’ve done?! Trust me – I get it!!! I know what its like to begin a fitness journey and BAM get smacked with back to back parties and weddings and get togethers and think you either A) Cannot enjoy anything at the party B) You’re going to be tossing all that hard work out the window. But that doesn’t have to be the case!!! I’ve compiled a list of healthy options that don’t sacrifice taste for flavor.

Turkey burgers

I still remember the first time I suggested using ground turkey over ground beef for burgers…I got the most disapproving look from my husband! He’s usually pretty willing to eat whatever I suggest and has been okay with my turkey spinach meatballs but just wasn’t fond of the idea of a burger being made out of turkey…until now!

These burgers turned out so juicy and when topped with a little mashed avocado needed nothing else! We passed on the bun, served with some grilled veggies and brown rice – yummy!

Turkey Spinach Burgers – yields 10 burgers

2.5 pounds ground lean turkey

3/4 cup salsa

1 TBS minced garlic

3 cups chopped spinach

1/2 cup chopped onion

Mix all ingredients and form into patties. I prefer to make mine 4oz or 1/4 pound each. With this you should get around 10 burgers. Grill 4-5 minutes per side (checking to make sure no pink inside!)

Serve with your favorite grilled veggies and sides!

Veggie kabobs

We are HUGE fans of making in bulk and freezing the leftovers for a future meal. We ended up with enough for our dinner and 2 more meals – SCORE!
