Day 3: Paleo Princess – Jalapeño Turkey Burgers

ImageGood Morning Paleo Beauties. Sorry about not posting yesterday {work calls – this is real life}, but let’s pick up back right where we started.

I still hope you ate paleo yesterday. It’s not hard – fruits, nuts, meats and veggies. It just takes willpower and a goal. What is not to like about munching on some of nature’s finest foods!?

Wake Up: Start your day with a hot cup of lemon water {this is supposed to cleanse the body}. Lemon is a detoxifier {read this post for more information.} Sip on this cup of goodness this morning and chill even if just for a few minutes. Think of all that God has blessed you with and that you are thankful for!

Drink Up: You should have had 16 oz before you walk out the door for work, grocery stores, parks {wherever your life takes you}. Sip on water all day. Remember NO soft drinks. Artificial sweetener is not your friend.

Snack On: Today I am snacking on cucumbers, celery and a Lara Bar. This should keep my desk stomach grumbles at bay today. {Always keep some kind of nut or a small apple handy too – maybe in your purse}.

Such delicious taste! I also added 1/2 of a avocado.

Lunch Recipe: Now for the new lunch recipe – Jalapeno Turkey Burgers! This is simple to make, you will want to make it the night before {for lunch the next day}.

You will need: 1 lb of lean ground turkey, ¼ a cup of sliced jalapenos, 2 garlic cloves and 1 tbsp. of olive oil.

Make sure the meat is thawed – and dump it in a mixing bowl. Put the jalapenos and garlic into the food processor and pulse until the mix is thoroughly blended together. Add this to the meat in the bowl and use your hands to knead in the spicy mixture.

On the skillet, pour the olive oil into the frying pan. Form little patties with the meat.  And cook your patties for about 5 minutes or until golden in color. Yum – a Texas Turkey Burger! Wrap in romaine lettuce for bread.

Dinner Diva: I am making something light tonight – because the burger is rather heavy. Having a green shake and some veggies on a platter!

Workout Video: Let’s focus on our arms tonight. You are definitely sore from the other nights. So, this will give us time to focus on another muscle group.
