Gluten Free Salmon Burgers

Alaskan Red Salmon Patties

I know I am fortunate. TH and I are able to fish amazing salmon runs each summer, filling our freezer with wild Alaskan Reds to feast on throughout the year. Once a week we grill a fish, usually after marinating in a bit of Bragg's amino acids, garlic, pepper, and a touch of pure maple syrup. (When the fish is fresh/not frozen we typically use just lemon, salt and pepper.)

*On a side note: farmed salmon is scary! Please don't eat it. Visit this site for more information.*

Buti Fitness

Earlier this summer I stumbled upon Buti Fitness workouts when I was looking for portable, but challenging, exercise for traveling. I was hooked after my first workout. After trying all of the free online videos I bought the $35.99 "30 Day Slimdown", as I soon wanted more.  Upon purchase I received a link and password to: 

1. Thirty days of meal plans. Bizzie advocates a grain and dairy free diet (I like that), but it's a plan that would leave my tummy rumbling. While I tried some of the recipes, I'm not interested in following her diet plan right now, mostly because the word "diet" makes me all panicky. 

2. Twenty video workouts. The video production is not that amazing, and you can only stream (not download) but I LOVE them. Although they are tough (shoulder/ab/butt/thigh burners) they are so much fun that it doesn't feel like working out. I prefer the "Tone" workouts, but the "Sculpt" videos are nice for when you don't have much time and want a quick cardio burst. 

Below I've embedded the free workouts that are available on line.
