Summertime Chow | Healthy & Fit

So over my super busy weekend I got an email from my FAV California trainers >> Karena & Katrina from TONE IT UP! I love getting their emails to encourage me throughout the week to keep me motivated in the gym and in the kitchen. This weekend they sent out a great email with a link to their new post 5 Healthy Memorial Day Recipes. Here are my favorites - I can't wait to add these into my rotation!!

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

makes 4-5 servings

  • 1 pound 98% fat free organic ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 3 tbs fat free feta cheese
  • Dried organic unsweetened cranberries
  • Fresh crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
Divide 1 pound of organic low fat ground turkey into 4-5 patties. Next, add in cranberries, feta, garlic & spinach to each patty with your hands.  Combine egg whites and olive oil in separate, medium sized bowl. Take 1 patty and dip in the egg mixture the moisture. Once all ingredients are thoroughly combined, form a patty. Grill over medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked. Serve with a whole wheat bun or on portobello mushrooms with your favorite condiments.

Grilled Summer Peaches

Makes 4 – 8 servings
  • 4 peaches
  • 4 Tbs. grapeseed Oil
  • 4 tsp. of raw honey
  • Optional – Greek Yogurt for garnish
Preheat grill to medium. Halve and pit your peaches and brush them all around lightly with grapeseed oil. Place them on the grill cut side down. Grill for 3-4 minutes until grill marks appear. Flip and grill the other side. Serve warm, with a drizzle of honey. If you like add a spoonful of Greek Yogurt!
