Happy July 4th week!
This week kicked off another 21 Day Fix challenge group filled with new people excited to take control of their health and fitness and I am so honored to be their coach. Although we all plan to enjoy the holiday this weekend I know having this group going will keep me from completely falling off the wagon. I am heading to Nashville, TN for the Beachbody Coach Summit on July 15th so I want to stay focused and feel my best for that trip! I can’t wait to workout in person with Autumn Calabrese and Shaun T and see all my friends from Team Dream Corp!!
I hope you have some fun plans this upcoming weekend!! I will be heading to the house I rent with friends in Newport, RI for some much needed vacation and relaxation time.
July 4th is one of my favorite holidays because it occurs in the summer and summer = barbecues! Normally when a holiday comes around I find it really hard to stay on track with my nutrition plan with all of the heavy casseroles and desserts that are always filling up the table. But at a barbecue it is easy to cook up tasty proteins and veggies right on the grill and they totally hit the spot on a hot summer night.
This recipe makes between 6-8 patties depending how large you make them and they freeze really well if you want to save some for another time.
I love turkey burgers because they are so versatile and you can throw in pretty much any ingredients you have in your fridge. I have been big into zoodles recently and have had a lot of zucchini in the house which is where my inspiration came from. The bright green of the zoodles and the pop of red, orange and yellow from the peppers made my think of confetti which is where I got the recipe name from.
I have partnered with Common Sense Goods to be able to offer 10 of my lucky readers the chance to purchase their own sprializer for only $5!!! That is over 50%!

I eat turkey burgers like a traditional burger on a bun, over salads, and with pasta and mixed veggies seasoned with a southwestern spice mix. The options are endless!
What is your favorite way to eat a turkey burger?
- 1lb of ground turkey
- 1 egg
- 1 small (or half of a large) onion, diced
- 1 cup of diced red, yellow and orange peppers
- 1 cup of zoodles, chopped
- Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
- Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until all ingredients are combined. Form into patties.
- Heat your grill (or spray a grill pan with non-stick spray) and place the patties on.
- Grill over a medium heat for 5-7 minutes until grill marks appear.
- Flip and grill an additional 5-7 minutes until completely cooked through.
- Serve on a bun, over a salad, or on top of a pasta dish and enjoy!
