4 sprigs parsley

fresh cracked pepper
lettuce leaves (bun)
For the Tomato Relish~
1/2 red onion cut into 1/4 in slices
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper
6 cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 tbs fresh mint
1 tbs fresh parsley
1 tbs fresh oregano
Lemon juice
In a food processor, puree the veggies to a fine consistency. Add the vegetables to the turkey in a bowl and mix
well, seasoning with the pepper. Mold into two small burgers (1 inch thick) and chill for 20 minutes. For the
relish: Brush the onions and peppers with olive oil and grill until browned. Cool and chop up. Add the onions
to the mixture, with the tomatoes, and herbs. Stir in the remaining oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and
pepper. Grill up your turkey burgers and serve in between lettuce leaves with a scoop of the tomato relish.
Want to make life easier? If you cook on the fly like I do, you can just purchase Applegate Turkey Burgers
and then create the relish. Save on prep time! :)
The Lean + Green Theory //
Have you ever heard of a “Carb Curfew”? This is a controversial subject since it doesn’t exactly have the best
backing with science (scientists don’t believe that carbs can tell time), but countless fitness and health professionals have sworn by this tactic for weight loss and maintenance. I have had great success on a personal level utilizing
the curfew, and I have found it to be the missing link between clients and dietary plateaus. Not only does the
curfew eliminate excess carbs from being converted to fat when you are at rest, but it also curbs those pesky
nighttime cravings. By getting into the Lean + Green routine, you’re more likely to avoid unhealthy and mindless
In addition, the Lean + Green phase promotes total body rejuvenation through Glow-Worthy Proteins and
unlimited greens. It is a wonderful way to end your vibrant and active day: With nourishment that replenishes
your body and assists with muscle tissue repair and development. It’s important to note that adequate, not excessive protein consumption is the key to a lean body. That’s what makes the all three phases of The Superfood
Diet so important ~ it ushers in the nutrient balance your body needs for maximum performance and function.
We often discuss pH balance, and the importance of maintaining your acid/alkaline balance via nutrition. A quick
tutorial on pH levels: Beneath the surface your body has hundreds of processes going on at one time. Your body
relies on an internal communication system in order to make sure everything is running efficiently. That communication system is your body’s pH level. The fluids in your body should register a pH between 7.35-7.50 in order
to stay healthy, disease free and efficient. You can test your pH through urine samples, and test strips are available at most health food retailers. When your body is host to an acidic environment (brought on by stress, diet,
medications) our cells become porous and susceptible to disease. Our energy and immunity decrease, and enzyme function (metabolism) comes to a screeching halt. If you’re concerned with weight loss, you should know
this: Your metabolism is dependent on enzymes to function. When your body is acidic, consider those enzymes
to be fast asleep, which is your metabolism!
Since this phase focuses on weight loss, it is therefore important to put an emphasis on how important those
dark green veggies truly are! The Lean + Green phase must balance the acidic nature of meat with alkalineforming green vegetables. The ‘green’ is the main event, and the ‘lean’ (meat) becomes the side dish. Balance your
grass-fed steak with dark green veggies. Out for sushi? Fill up on nori & seaweed salad! You can also bring in balance through alkaline-forming seasoning, such as apple cider vinegar, and real sea salt. Sea salt contains over 80
trace minerals and can quickly restore alkalinity to the body. Add sea salt at the end of your cooking process so
that it remains in it’s raw state.
Athletes who train early in the morning on a fasted state, please feel free to add carbs in as you see fit!
