3 Tasty Turkey Burger Recipes

Looking for the most AMAZING healthy turkey burger recipes? Look no further — these recipe are easy, fast, and is FULL of deliciousness!

 

Earlier this week I mentioned how I’m aiming to get my fitness back in order, well along with that is getting my diet back in order!

Now I’ve considered many ways to reboot for the New Year. There’s the Whole30 diet, Keto, Paleo, Intermittent, etc…. But after careful consideration I have decided to do NONE of them! That’s right, I’m quitting the diet fads and aiming for something crazy different. It’s called… Healthy Eating!

Insane concept right? 2018 for me is all about Balance. Balance of the mind, body, soul and food. Whenever I join a trend I never seem to find the balance of it all, so I’m aiming to just do me. And instead of restricting foods, I’m aiming to find new ways to make my favorite things healthier. For example, mixing up my BURGERS!

Foster Farms is the leading producer of organic turkey in the Western United States and their Ground Turkey is healthy, leaner and a lower calorie alternative to ground beef and super juicy!

With 93% lean, it’s the perfect balance of fat that you need to make a burger delicious and to fuel your body. Fat is your friend loves! Even better about Foster Farms is that it’s joined the shelves at mnay Costcos and Targets along the West Coast.

Now when Foster Farms asked to collaborate with me, I jumped at the chance! Especially because I’m a West Coast Gal and I love eating local products. However I wasn’t sure what to cook. But after a little turn of the wheel I realized the possibilities were endless with BURGERS!

While I’m gluten free and trying to stray away from breads at the moment this tasty burgers would be even better on a bun or even on top of a divine salad! Endless choices guys! ENDLESS!
