Hello wonderful readers! Today’s 60 degree weather has put me in an exceptionally good mood I’ve been trying to take an extra walk with Luna outside every day that the weather’s nice. As I found out from her vet appointment on Monday, she has really put on some winter weight So she’s now getting extra walks, and longer walks.
Today’s recipe is another in my series of low carb dishes: Turkey Quinoa Mini Burgers. I’m all about cooking big batches of things and then freezing anything that I won’t finish in a week. I definitely don’t feel like cooking most days when I get home from work, so I tend to do all my cooking on the weekend and then just eat leftovers all week. That’s what works for me, and these mini burgers fit in perfectly with that plan.
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp of Italian Medley seasoning
1 extra large egg
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Spray a muffin tin generously with non-stick spray. Using your hands, take about a heaping 1/4 cup of the mixture into your palm and roll it gently into a ball/patty shape, and place each patty into a muffin well.
4. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven.
How easy is that? Super easy.

In other news, I was recently accepted as a FitFluential Ambassador, which is super exciting. This means that soon I will hopefully get to start reviewing some new fitness/workout gear and letting you know what I think. I’ve been wanting to work more fitness posts into the blog anyway, so this will be a great opportunity to do so.
Tell me, how are you enjoying this warm weather outside?
Are you running? Walking? Biking?
