Turmeric Tuna Burgers

Whoa!!! It’s been a while since I posted anything on this site.  Word Press had a meltdown, and GoDaddy said they couldn’t help me because it was a third-party program.

That was July 2016 and it took until today for me to sit down with my laptop and figure this s&it out.  Imagine my surprise when I actually saw my site again with all my recipes and pictures intact.  I almost cried.

I almost let the site go because I was finding it hard to have freelance work, build my small business, Khala Naturals, coach CrossFit a couple times a week, and do all the other things that we pack into our lives.

That changed yesterday when I got a note from a friend on facebook:

“Hey BJ, I have a friend that has gotten into the whole life challenge and I was telling her all about you and your sisters achievements etc.
Trying to find links to the video, the challenge and your cook books and such but having trouble finding what I am looking for…so much stuff on facebook…if you could send me some links to this I would greatly appreciate it and will share with her.
She is on a 30 day challenge now and when she finished we are both going to try the one that you sent me. Yep…new year…another attempt at a lifestyle change…her name is *****  if you wish to say hello or send her anything on this…she is very interested:)”

It’s been almost seven years since I made my big life change dropping 50 pounds and getting more active.  Sometimes I forget how impressive that change was and how others look at me for inspiration.  That’s not an ego trip, it’s just fact.

That has put things in a different perspective for me now.  Yes, I am stupid-busy with a lot of things on the go constantly, but I have to remember the events that brought me to this point and that it’s my job to help others attain the health and happiness I have found.

So…with that said, here’s a recipe that is a go-to for me on busy days.  Lots of good Omega 3s, protein, and that amazing turmeric.  Be sure to add the black pepper so you get the full benefit of tumeric’s antioxident properties.

Turmeric Tuna Burgers
