An ambitious, and delicious, dinner project: Eggless, Gluten-Free Chia Quinoa Turkey Burger Patties

This all began because I wanted to try the Chia seed egg substitute, and evolved into a fun, long awaited journey to my first homemade burger. I’ve always looked at healthy homemade burgers online but also always found them to be very daunting (a burger? homemade?) so I’ve decided to deconstruct it for others who might want to break their own homemade burger virginity. This recipe for the perfect healthy burgers is (as you can obviously tell) simple, and absolutely delicious. For the recipe, click the Read More.

Author’s Note: Sorry to have killed you all with the angst last chapter.  I have my reasons, namely that the story isn’t over yet.  Can’t have a happy ending until the end, right?  Just think of it like season 3 of Arrow.  It’s all steps along the path.  In this chapter, I will further try your patience and for that, I apologize.  The good news is that we’re getting down to the wire here and it’s pedal to the metal from here into the finish! 

Super big smooches to my lovely beta, mersayseh
