So based on some unfortunate biometric scan results Levi and I have decided to make just a few changes in our lifestyle to make sure that we don’t just drop dead. You may start to see some lighter recipes on the blog. I am going to tell you that we are not on a diet. I hate dieting and all the negativity that word implies.
I have never personally been a successful dieter. I’ve always been able to lose weight, but never been able to maintain it. And so of course I always end up heavier than when I started. So it’s just a bad experience all around.
This time I am focusing on health. Inevitably some of the weight will come off, but it’s not the goal. Eating home more often, getting semi-regular exercise and just being more conscious of what we are putting in our bodies is the goal.
Don’t worry though! I still have a major sweet tooth and part of being healthy is being balanced and not ignoring those cravings. Everything in moderation.
So here we go.
1 lb Ground Turkey
1/2 Red Onion, chopped
2 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Mustard Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
Optional- Pepper jack cheese
Mix up all the ingredients and form into patties. We made 3. I made them pretty thin and large because I like meat in every bite. We made these on a skillet, I am not sure how well they would hold up on a grill. If your heart is set on the grill I would maybe add a binder like bread crumbs.
We got these great pitas from Sams Club and just added some ranch and lettuce and boom! Awesome sandwich!
How yummy is this?!?!?
