“Fitness Friday” Meal of The Day:
- GREEK CHICKEN BURGERS -
Gyro sandwiches at a restaurant can be upwards of 760 calories. You can take some of those same flavors and save yourself 330 calories. Follow this motto: Stay in, eat this, get thin! Greek chicken burgers with tangy feta cheese, and fresh ground chicken is a calorie-saving alternative to a gyro sandwich.
- Ingredients -
- Four 6-inch pita pockets
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 3/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 large egg
- 6 ounces low-fat plain yogurt
- 4 cups romaine or iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced
- 3 plum tomatoes, sliced
- Directions -
- Cut off a third of each pita and set the pita pockets aside.
- Grate the small pita pieces on the fine side of grater, or pulse in food processor, to make 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.
- In a large bowl, mix the crumbs, chicken, feta, 1/4 cup mint, salt, pepper and egg until just combined. Shape the mixture into 8 small 3/4-inch-thick burgers.
- Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt and remaining 1/2 cup mint. To serve, fill each pita with some lettuce, tomatoes, 2 burgers and some yogurt sauce.
- Make it a Drop 5 Meal by adding: 1/2 cup frozen sweet potato fries, baked. 500 complete meal calories.

Camille Clarke is the owner of Camille’s Fitness, an in home personal training company. Camille has trained a variety of clients actors (due to the movies filmed in Pittsburgh), pro athletes, high school athletes, state reps, business men, stay at home moms and senior citizen. Camille is also an NPC National Level Figure Competitor, currently preparing to compete for her IFBB Pro Card in 2014. Camille is originally from Kingston, Jamaica and in 2013, while competing, she met Brian Hay and Winston Grey, fellow Jamaicans to form the team ‘Bredrenagofit’. Camille is also currently signed to SLU Agency as a fitness model.
Camille credits her expertise in Health and Fitness, with her own personal struggles with fitness. Camille at the age of 16 weighed +250lbs. Today Camille is 6′ and 145lbs. Camille was also a High School star athlete, being lettered in Volleyball and Basketball. She was recruited by Notre Dame, Purdue, St. Johns and Rutgers but due to her mother’s influence opted on an academic scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh, but during her Freshman year she was good enough to walk on to the University of Pittsburgh’s basketball team, but due to an ACL injury only played half the season.
Camille has her BS in Psychology, Sociology and Exercises Physiology and her MS in Exercise Physiology. Camille originally set out to pursue a medical career but after being accepted to med school she opted to get her MS in Exercise Science “I wanted to prevent rather than treat. Certain chronic disease can be corrected with dietary changes and activity, but instead doctors are prescribing medication rather than nutrition or physical activity. Injuries occur due to anatomical imbalance due to a weak core brought on by sedentary lifestyle. My clients call me the fixer. I can look at the way someone walks or slouches what kind of anatomical weakness and can predict certain ailments without being told.” Camille was pursuing her PhD in Exercise Science at the University of Pittsburgh but due to personal reasons opted to take a break. Now she has a new love in Nutrition and is currently applying to Grad school to pursue her PhD in Nutritional Science, where she hopes to study the effects of food on hormones.
