Lean Turkey Burgers

turkeyburgeroventurkeyburgermixturkeyburgerbodybuilding

These Italian Turkey Burgers are so good. I got the recipe from Jamie Eason’s LiveFit program from Bodybuilding.com. They are easy to prepare and can be broiled or grilled and ready in 30 minutes.

All you need is:

2 medium to large zucchini shredded (keep all juices because this helps keep them moist)
2 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 package extra lean ground turkey

Combine everything in a bowl and mix with clean hands. Form burgers or form balls to have turkey balls. Line a pan with foil. Place burgers or balls on pan and place the pan on the top rack of oven. Broil for about 8-10 or until golden then flip burgers and broil another 8-10 minutes. Done!!

This is one of my favorite low-fat lean proteins and is great to have during The Cellulite Project ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your favorite turkey recipe?

Abs Are Made In The Kitchen

Well we have all heardย the saying “abs are made in the kitchen”.ย  I would say I am in pretty good shape. I eat healthy, train hard and overall, take good care of myself. I started doing The Cellulite Project again just to stay on track with healthy eating and eliminating processed food completely from my diet so I will feel energetic and strong. I know I do not need to lose weight and that is not my goal if that is what you are thinking. However, I am not going to lie. Even though I am a thin person, I would like to see some cuts and definition in my abs and arms. I believe “abs are made in the kitchen”ย . I have a very strong core, but my hard work in the gym is hidden by some junky food effects from earlier this summer. I will put this theory to the test ๐Ÿ™‚ I will continue my daily workouts along with following The Cellulite Project over the next 22 days and then I will snap another photo to showย my progress. This is a photo of me and my abs taken yesterday.

I Fight Cellulite With Real Food

It is on again! The Cellulite Project! Look above at the tabs, click on The Cellulite Project button to get an overview of what I am doing. This time I will do this for 24 days. A little over a year ago I followed this program which I developed and not only did I get leaner, diminshing some dimples on my thighs and buttocks, but most of all I felt incredible. I slept better and had so much energy.

So it is that time again when I feel some serious measures need to come in to play. Overall I eat very healthy and make great choices but the processed food has been creeping around in my diet over the past month. It is time to take control.

I started today so the next 23 days I will be following the project again and this time I will be regularly posting all of my healthy non processed foods on my blog, my facebookย page, twitter and instagram. So if you would like to see what I am up to, just go check them out. By the way, my main goal is to continue to be healthy and inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle, but I still want a defined midsection and less dimples on my rear ๐Ÿ™‚ Just keeping it real. So with that being said, I suppose I will do a before and after photo of my abdominal area and we will see what happens. If you want to see all this craziness just follow me on IG and twitter at @nthefitzoneย or my facebook page (click the FB link at top) to get all updates quick. I will also be posting as much as I can on this blog.

This is what I ate for dinner tonight ๐Ÿ™‚ A lovely salad with grilled chicken drizzled withย a tsp EVOO and lemon juice (salt/pepper to taste). Itย was leftover from last night. I suggest preparing more than you need at the moment so you will have leftovers, easy to prepare so you will not be tempted to go for the crap fake food.

I also paired the saladย with these little nuggets. Brussel sprouts with a touch of EVOO, fresh lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Yes I did ๐Ÿ™‚
