Holiday Enjoyment and Recovery!

What are you doing for Labor Day?

We’re cruising to Alaska. Today we stop in Juneau, then we’re on to Sitka and Ketchikan. We won’t be barbecuing, but we’ll have a lot of great food on the ship.

Here’s a fun recipe if you’re looking for something different to serve on Labor Day.

Labor Day Lamb Burgers

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/3 pounds ground lamb
  • 4 whole grain hamburger buns or gluten free buns
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 1/3 cups crumbled goat or sheep feta cheese (optional; omit for all dairy sensitive)
  • 4 thin red onion slices
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar


Mix first 3 ingredients and 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in medium bowl; mix in lamb. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Cook patties in a large skillet brushed with a little olive oil over medium-high heat 4 minutes per side for medium. Or barbecue them.

Preheat broiler and broil buns until golden, about 2 minutes or brush them with olive oil and put inside of buns face down on the grill. Top each bun bottom bun with a burger. Toss spinach, feta (if using), onion, vinegar, and 11/2 tablespoons oil in a bowl. Place the 1/4 of the mixture on top of burgers. Cover with bun tops, pressing firmly to compact. Enjoy!!

Nutrition Tips for your holiday enjoyment!

Spinach Power!

There are some super nutrients in spinach making it a great food to eat often. Check this out: the flavonoids in spinach act as antioxidants to keep cholesterol from oxidizing.

Think about preventing colon cancer. The folate in spinach is good for your cardiovascular system, and magnesium helps lower high blood pressure. Studies also have shown that spinach helps support brain function. If you want to improve your memory and mental clarity, consume more spinach.
