A Light, Flavorful Dinner
Easy Turkey Salad
This summer has been so busy with birthday parties, lake parties, afternoons at the pool, and trips, I’ve really started to value meals that are quick and easy. And of course, being healthy and tasting good are required too. I’ve made this salad a couple of times in the past couple of weeks and this week I’ll be doubling the recipe because there’s never enough!
1/3 tbsp. evoo
1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
1/2 c. red onion, chopped
16 oz. lean ground turkey
1 t. Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling Blend
Heat evoo in a skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion and saute until onion is tender. Add turkey and Mrs. Dash and cook until turkey is evenly browned. I like to eat mine over 2 cups of raw spinach drizzled with a little lemon juice and Sriracha. That’s it, dinner in under 15 minutes.
Macros per one of two servings for just the turkey: 359k cals, 16.4g fat (2.3g sat, 0g poly, 0g mono), 5.8g carbs (.7g fiber, 0g sugar), 48.5g protein, 171.2mg sodium, 10mg potassium
Fadi Malouf – Personal Trainer
Exercise of the Day
Uni Low Cable Row
Learning a new exercise doesn’t begin with how heavy of a weight I can use or with how fast I can get it done; it begins with practicing the proper form. That’s one thing I love about personal training-I’ve been doing certain exercises a certain way for years thinking I’m killing it and then I learn the proper form and I’m like, “Ohhhh, so that’s what its supposed to feel like”.
Today I practiced my uni low cable rows (that’s a one arm, one leg row using a low pulley). This video of me is great not only because I lose my balance (that happens a lot when I work out), but also because I want you all to see how I struggle to keep my chest out and my shoulders down. The reason I do that is because my body wants to pull with my arms, but your lats should be doing the work in this exercise, not your arms.
Here’s Fadi showing me what its supposed to look like. Looks effortless, doesn’t it?
I worked out for an hour at the gym this morning and it took me a good portion of that time to get this exercise right. So, when you get out to the gym today to show off your perfect uni low cable rows, concentrate on those lats and you’ll have a, “ohhhh, so that’s what its supposed to feel like” moment too! Enjoy, and to your health!
