Shape Up Saturday Series: 21 Day Fix Approved Turkey Burger Recipe

Uncategorized

Ok, so I may or may not have eaten this burger for three weeks straight.  It was seriously THAT good!  I think this is by far my absolute favorite recipe that is 21 day fix approved.  I didn’t want to switch up my meal planning because this was so good but I had to just so that I didn’t get sick of it, but boooyyyyy do I want to eat this again haha!
The recipe is actually really simple and you can modify it as much as you want, for example if you want to add more veggies like peppers, or even diced mushrooms.  This is why I always say there are healthier alternatives to just about everything.  Even though eating a regular hamburger might be your thing, you must try these.  They are amazing!
