Clean eating Portobello Burgers and a Weekend Workout Cardio Core

Our lovely Lora Levy( Boot camp mom) shared this great dinner recipe with us! It is soooo good. Total calories 230!  For a side dish I made sweet potato fries. The weather this weekend is so nice if you cant make it outside to our boot camp here is a kick butt work out you can do at home. Enjoy

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean with damp cloth
  • 4 slices red onion, each round about 1/4-inch thick (about 1 medium onion)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • 2 oz blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 tbsp nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt


  1. Heat a grill pan on medium-high. Lightly brush mushroom caps and onion with oil. Grill mushroom caps and onion for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until mushrooms are tender. (NOTE: Mushrooms will begin to release their juices when they are tender.) Set aside on a separate plate. Grill buns, cut-sides-down, for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until toasted.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Spread sauce on bottom half of each bun, dividing evenly. Top with onion, mushroom caps (smooth-side-down), cheese and lettuce, dividing each evenly.
