Cilantro Chicken Burger. You either love cilantro or you hate it. I love it so this sounds amazing.
Spicy Chipotle Turkey Burger. I love me some smoky chipotle but only in small doses because I'm a wuss when it comes to spice. That and I don't enjoy getting sweaty while I eat. What can I say, I have a sensitive disposition. Pretty sad for a girl who's got the Islands in her blood.

I've got dinner covered for the few nights this week that I'm actually going to be home.
Monday: Spaghetti squash with meat sauce. I usually cook spaghetti squash in the oven but, I've done it in the microwave as well so that's what I'll do tomorrow. Since I've got more ground turkey that's what I'll use for the meat sauce and I'll throw in some garlic, onions and spinach, along with some tomato sauce . Yummy.
Wednesday: Cedar planked salmon with a maple balsamic glaze & grilled veggies. I'll have to remember to soak the plank in the sink before I leave for the day.
Both of these recipes are things that I've made up. I'm a bit of a "free-form" cooker, I rarely write anything down, I usually just wing it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Perhaps this time I'll write everything down and post the final products here.
The rest of the nights I'm either at my run club, working late or we're out for dinner with the family. Saturday I'll grocery shop and start this all over again.
The one thing that never fails when we're shooting is that there is always a lot of food around. Some of it good (if I have anything to say about it, it's generally healthy) and some of it not so good. I have very little self control so I have a hard time staying away from the goodie table. But, if I bring my own snacks, then I'm less tempted to eat crap. So, I'm going to cut up a bunch of veggies and have them ready to go and I'm going to make some roasted chick peas on the BBQ. Low fat and protein packed, you couldn't ask for a better snack. That's next up on my list and then, the couch may just win out.
Which burger would you make?
Do you have any strategies for eating healthy and staying on track?
