I should be showering and packing since we’re leaving for Killington, Vermont in 2 hours but I’d rather type a quick post and share a recipe with you guys! Sorry if this post is all over the place and doesn’t make sense. That’s nothing new, right?
Let’s get to it….
My breakfast this morning was a bowl of peach greek yogurt, sliced banana, blueberries, and a spoonful of ground flax seeds. Yum!
In an effort to eat a more “clean” diet, I stocked up on LaraBar’s from Whole Foods. They’re made up of fruit, nuts, and spices and only contain a couple of ingredients. So simple and perfect. And they have so many delicious flavors.
If you haven’t had one before, you need to go out and buy 1 today! Or actually you should wait until they go on sale since they can be a bit pricey.
The burger may look burnt but I swear it was delicious!! The sweet potato fries were pretty amazing too.
Last night my friend and I worked up a sweat at a boxing class and then came back to my place for a lil’ wine and to prepare a healthy, paleo dinner. We got to work in the kitchen and within 20 minutes this awesome, flavorful burger was ready to be served.
Paleo Herb Spinach Burgers
- 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
- 1 1/2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
- 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
- 1 egg
- salt and pepper to taste
1) In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and use your hands to mix well.
2) Form 5 patties and place them on a hot non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side. Enjoy!
*You can also add lots of toppings to the burgers: sliced avocado, lettuce, onions, tomatos, a fried egg (so good!), bacon, etc.

Anywho, guess it’s time to log off and get this show on the road. Mike and I are heading up to Vermont for a much needed getaway. We have a bunch of winter activities planned but I guess it all depends on the weather and right now it’s looking pretty crappy out there. So if all else fails, we’ll just spend the day @ the Long Trail Brewing Company. And hopefully spend some time at the spa as well. :)
What ingredients do you add to your burgers?
Have you ever been to Vermont?
I actually don’t think I have? I can’t remember….
