Workday Eats - What's for lunch?

It's lunchtime! What are you having?

This week for lunch I'll be having a turkey burger patty (recipe below), 1/2 cup of roasted broccoli and 1/2 cup of sweet potato. (don't mind the 2 bites I took of my burger)

I bring my lunch for the whole week on Monday and hope no one takes it! Fingers crossed!

What are you eating this week? Do you mind eating the same thing each day? For me it keeps me on track. I know how many calories I will have each day. Easy. 

Even I can admit turkey burgers can be a smidge bland. So I turned to Pinterest (of course) and found this yummy recipe.

Ranch Turkey Burger Recipe

- 1 lb lean, ground turkey
- 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Dry Mix
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Form into 4 patties. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Cook the patties until done. Serve on hamburger buns or wrap in iceberg lettuce for a carbohydrate free hamburger recipe version.
NOTE: Serving with hamburger buns will add additional points to the recipe – make sure to factor that in!
Entire Recipe makes 4 servings
Serving size is 1 patty
Each serving = 3 Point Total

I LOVE to eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day! I am definitely a routine girl. This week, it's extra lean grilled burgers (96/4%). Only about 2 oz each. I do eat mine on a low cal bun, since I'm not doing low carb. I WISH I could eat broccoli like I used to, but it doesn't "set well" with my tummy anymore. :(
