Turkey Burgers

I love meals that I can decide to make at 5pm and have on the table in 30 minutes! These turkey burgers use ingredients that you likely have in your kitchen. They are simple to whip up and my husband told me they are “blog worthy”.  To make lowFODMAP use gluten free bread crumbs.

Turkey Burgers

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb 93/7 lean ground turkey
  • 3 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1.5 Tbsp Bubbies pickle juice
  • 1.5 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together. Make burger patties. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, flip patties and cook for another 5-10 minutes until cooked through.

Cooking tip: Make turkey burgers in a pan on the stove. Add 1/8 cup water to pan for burgers to cook and not dry out. You may need to add more water half way through cooking.

Smoothie Bowl

My son has been refusing fruit recently, so I decided to be creative with lunch today. This smoothie bowl was a hit. I told him it is like ice cream and it was gone in not time!

DYK: Smoothies are a simple way to get fruits and veggies into your diet. Add protein powder and whole grain cereal, and you have a meal!

Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients:

2 cups frozen fruit (I used peaches, strawberries and blueberries)

1/3 cup coconut milk (or milk of choice)

1 scoop protein powder (20 grams protein)

1 kiwi

1/4  avocado

1/8 cup favorite whole grain cereal crushed

1 T coconut flakes

Directions:

Place frozen fruit in a bowl and thaw for 1 minute. In a blender add frozen fruit, milk and protein powder. I use my ninja single serve cup! Blend until smooth. Then pour into a bowl and top with kiwi, avocado, and crushed whole grain cereal mixed with coconut. Add variety with different frozen fruit and topping selections.
