Creamy Dill Yogurt Dressing Recipe I love this dressing more than I should, to be honest.  It is so delicious and guilt-free.  It only requires four ingredients.  I enjoy this Creamy Dill Yogurt Dressing on my Cucumber and Tomato Salad and my Mediterranean Burgers . Ingredients 2 Cups Chobani Fat-Free Plain Yogurt 2 Tbs Dill 1 Tbs Garlic 1/2 Tbs Lemon Juice Salt and Pepper to taste Directions Combine all ingredients and enjoy! *If not using this on the cucumber salad, try adding a little slivered onion and cucumber for more texture.

Cucumber and Tomato Salad Recipe This Cucumber and Tomato Salad recipe is refreshing and a great accompaniment for any meal, especially my Mediterranean burger recipe.  It is so fresh and delicious.  The recipe will yield 5 cups.  I recommend adding the Creamy Dill Yogurt Dressing right before serving. Recipe 2 medium-sized cucumbers 1/4 diced onions 2 large tomatoes 1/4 cup fat-free or reduced-fat feta cheese Salt and Pepper to taste Directions Dice all ingredients and chill.  Perfectly pairs with my Creamy Dill Yogurt Dressing.  If making ahead, mix with the dressing just prior to serving.  Otherwise, the tomatoes can cause the salad to be a little runny.  If you know that there will be leftovers, I recommend keeping the dressing and salad separate and combining before each meal.

Mediterranean Burger Recipe These tasty burgers are one of my favorite recipes to enjoy with my family.  They are packed with delicious ingredients and cook more like a meatloaf patty than a regular burger. They are quick and easy to make.  Even my picky four-year-old loves them, with a slice of cheese on top of course. Yields 8 Sliders Ingredients 1 package extra lean ground turkey 1 cup dry oatmeal 1 egg 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers 1/2 cup diced spinach 1/2 cup diced onion 1/2 cup fat-free or reduced-fat feta cheese Salt and Pepper Directions Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Form slider size patties. Cook on the grill until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.  Enjoy with my protein-packed Creamy Dill Yogurt Dressing or Cucumber and Tomato Salad.

Overcoming Mom Guilt and Making Fitness Gains | MT Girl Fitness

3 Ways to Overcome Mom Guilt and Strive for Fitness Gains Before I had kids, I worked out at least six days a week. If I wanted to take an exercise class, sub a class, or sign-up for a race on a whim I did it. Back then I had plenty of time to do what I wanted to do. Raising little ones changes your life and priorities or at least it did for me. I knew things would change, but I guess I didn't expect how. I understood that much more of my time would be consumed with cuddles, diapers, and feedings, but I didn't account for the intense "mom guilt" I would feel when wanting to squeeze in a workout or take a little time for myself. The truth is though, is that working out makes me a better mom.  Exercise is important for everyone and the release of endorphins a person receives after a workout is important. Have You Experienced Mom Guilt? According to a study by NUK, 87% of Moms feel some level of Mom Guilt. As Moms, we worry if we are doing right by our childr
