Greek Turkey Burger Tuesday

Good Morning!! I am so excited to share this recipe with you and hope you will all join me in Turkey Burger Tuesday!!

Greek Turkey Burger Tuesday


These are so good and so tasty you won’t be able to eat just one! Typically I serve them with baked sweet potato fries along with the sliced cucumbers. You can always grab extra red onions, cucumber and your hamburger bun of choice and actually make a burger. I prefer the patty alone with some of the sauce on top. Trust me you will love these any way you choose to eat them! Continue reading “Greek Turkey Burger Tuesday”

Weekly Round Up – Cyber Deals

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! How did your holiday weekend go?? I was able to participate in the local Turkey Trot put on by the El Paso YMCA and it was an awesome event. So many people came out and braved the cold and rain to complete their race! I also set a new PR for a 5k. Every bib was chipped and at the end of the race we were able to type in our bib number and get our race results! I didn’t finish in the top of my age group like the last 5k (which was a major typo 😉) but I was still so proud of my results. Did you participate in an early Thanksgiving morning race? How did you do??

Protein Buckeyes

 

Happy Friday the 13th!! To celebrate football season (my Ohio State Buckeyes!!!) and the holiday season I wanted to share this Protein Buckeye recipe I found. I love chocolate and peanut butter and these make me feel a little less guilty!! The original Buckeye Candies have a few more ingredients that make it a little harder to watch your waist line, but these are amazing and you can easily put them back like no big deal!!

In October we wear PINK!

Did you know 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime? October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month and everything turns PINK to bring awareness to this disease. Many companies will donate a portion of proceeds from pink items to organizations like Susan G. Komen, Bright Pink and Young Survival Coalition. I have put together a list of where you can find products to purchase and a few events to participate in to give back and get involved!

Get Shopping!!

  • New Balance has an entire line, Lace Up For the Cure, where they will donate 5% of the MSRP of each product sold with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000 in 2015, 2016 and 2017!!
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods has an incredible collection of pink-wear not only for women but men and youth as well!
  • Carbon38 also has an amazing pink shop featuring two new exclusive styles. For every pair sold they will donate $10 to Susan G Komen for cancer research!
  • 100% of the proceeds from this cute Fabletics outfit will be donated to Bright Pink, an organization “on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer.”

Get Active!!

  • Susan G Komen is the most recognizable organization for breast cancer awareness and research. I have participated in a few of their Race for the Cure events and would love to tackle a 3day event in the future! Check out their website for local events near you!
  • If dancing is more your thing, check out Party in Pink, they have teamed up with Susan G. Komen to raise money through Zumbathons hosted by licensed Zumba instructors. This looks like the ultimate party all while raising money for an important cause! #movetogive

Here are a few more pink items that I found around the web:


Have you participated in an event benefitting cancer research? What pink products have you purchased this year?
