Clean Eating Turkey Burgers


Hello friendlies!! Sorry I’ve been such a slacker getting posts up on this page. I’m going to try to be better.

No really. I am!

I mean, at least better than I have been.

So onto this recipe…THE BOMB!! My friend Aimee originally sent it to me and then I added a little to it. I make a double batch to keep in the fridge for a quick and easy reheat. I’ll eat them plain, on a bun with blue cheese, tomato, avocado, and red onion (Yum!), or crumbled up with zucchini noodles and tomato sauce. You can even freeze half to reheat at a later date. They are so versatile and really help me stay on track with my eating plan.



  • 4 small shallots (chopped)
  • 8 oz baby bella mushrooms (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp plain greek yogurt
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • several fresh parsley leaves (chopped)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp worchestershire
  • 2 lb. ground turkey

Mix all ingredients together and form into patties. Heat grill to medium-high. Cook burgers 5 minutes. Turn and grill until almost cooked through, about 3-5 minutes more.

I only share recipes the whole family likes. These are a big hit in our house. I hope they are in yours as well!!



Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps


One of my favorite clean eating and quick lunches! No cooking required!


  • Bibb or Boston Lettuce for wraps
  • 1 can chunk light tuna in water
  • 1 cup of veggies – broccoli and celery
  • 1/2 cup grapes
  • 1/4 cup creamy herb dressing

Creamy herb dressing

  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1.5 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 dash white pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

For Dressing: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Store leftover dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator. This dressing is wonderful on salads, but also great as a dip for raw vegetables.

For Tuna Salad: Mix all ingredients together and place into lettuce wraps.

Clean Eating: Turkey Meatballs


Love doing these Turkey Meatballs for dinner. I eat mine with a spinach salad and serve my family spaghetti and meatballs. It’s an easy way to cook for both your family and yourself!


  • 1 lb ground lean turkey
  • yellow chopped onion
  • 1/2 c. gluten free panko
  • 1 egg
  • 4-5 chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp. parsley
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Mash all the ingredients together and place on a greased cooking sheet. Back at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

* Next time I might add a little chopped up spinach for extra hidden veggies for my boys.  ;o)

** If you are following the 21 day fix, I use 2 turkey meatballs as 1 red container.





Holy Chicken Nuggets


I’m constantly trying to add more protein in my diet along with creating a healthy meal that my children will eat. Score with these “chicken nuggets”!


  • 1/2 c. Oat Bran
  • 1/4 c. Almond Meal (I didn’t have almond meal on hand so I combined oatmeal with almonds for the almond meal)
  •  1/4 c. Flax seed
  • 1/2 tbsp Ground Mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp Oregano
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. H2O
  • 2 large chicken breasts

Mix dry ingredients in blender. This will be your coating.

Place on baking sheet and bake approximately 20-25 min at 400 degrees.IMG_7392

I serve mine along side roasted brussel sprouts. It’s a great healthy meal that the whole family will enjoy! IMG_7398
