Working Out (or lack of) & Yummy Burgers

Okay, for realz I’m finding it really hard to start working out. I have good intentions in my head but my body would pretty much rather do anything besides work out. How do you guys make yourself?? Wouldn’t you rather watch the newest episode of The Real Housewives on your dvr? I feel like it becomes a habit but man, I’m finding it difficult to start :/

And now, because I’m a fatty I will share one of my favorite burger recipes. This was originally a Giada DeLaurentis recipe that I changed slighty by using whole wheat buns and reduced fat mayonnaise.

Chicken burgers with Rosemary Garlic Mayonnaise and Arugula

I know the thought of a burger made with ground chicken sounds like it could be dry but adding some of the mayonnaise to the meat keeps them moist. I usually like a runny egg and bacon and cheese on my burgers so this is definitely healthier for me and they taste great!

Party!

I threw a party over the weekend and tried to make some healthier/non processed food options. It turned out great, there was no food left! I wish I took better pictures!

These veggie cups are so cute! I like how everyone got their own individual cup as well. I used a lite ranch, blue cheese would be great too. I just cut up carrots, cucumber and celery.

Baked Rosemary Chips
•Potatoes
•Extra Virgin Olive Oil (regular olive oil is fine too)
•Dried Rosemary
•S&P (salt & pepper)
Slice potatoes thinly using a mandolin, slicer or by hand (these were done by hand). Brush baking sheets with olive oil, line potatoes, brush potatoes with olive oil, S&P. Bake at 375′ 15-20 mins. When they’re hot I sprinkled them with dried rosemary and a coarse salt.
This is a good starter recipe that can be played with so many ways. Adding fresh parsley instead of rosemary with a blue cheese dipping sauce, adding cayenne pepper to make them spicy, adding thyme, endless possibilities!
I’ll share more of what I made coming up.
