Chronicles of an Iron Belle
Hey there, my name is Kerry (thatís me in the picture up there) glad you are here. I have been a health nut for a while but never truly realized my passion for it until a few years ago. I have been a massage therapist for over ten years and known for my ability to Ďtortureí people. The CIA wasnít hiring so I pursued an Infant Massage Therapy certification in an attempt to figure out when things start going awry as we develop and stopping them before they cause trouble when we are adults. Person after person would come to me seeking relief from their pain and all I could do was iron it out with a massage, the rest of the work was up to them and I soon found that not too many go to the gym and know what to do or have a personal trainer who gives them a good program. A major contributor to this issue is the lack of communication from the client to the professional out of ignorance of their own body all because we are so busy with the other demands of life to even listen to what our body is telling us. This blog will give you that understanding.

All that background stuff brought me to today: a certified personal trainer who LOVES kettlebell training (my fave move is the Turkish Get Up), loves running, and loves acting like a kid (I have three!). I hope you enjoy the journey with me as we tackle understanding our bodies and how to get the most of your time at the gym, beat injury, figure out what muscles are doing what, and have a few laughs along the way. Understand that I am a massage therapist and personal trainer, not a medical doctor so the advice I share here is strictly that: advice.

Please drop me a line though, I would love to hear all about you!

Take care,

Kerry M. Davis LMT, CIMT, CPT

Iím not ashamed to admit that pretty much every recipe I write about is stolen from someoneís blog, a column in the newspaper, or from chefs Iíve worked with and restaurants Iíve cooked in. These sliders were inspired by the latter.

Going along with my latest quest for healthy fast-foods, I cooked these mini burgers using a meat roasting tray to allow the grease to drip off them, and I used wheat rolls to give this some semblance of wholesomeness. Topped with Sriracha mayonnaise, avocado, pepper jack cheese and grilled jalapeno peppers, itís a perfect combination of hot and cool.

I paired the sliders with homemade sweet potato fries. They were pretty delicious despite being a little ďblackened,Ē a polite term for burnt because I had the oven on a bit too high.

For the burgers youíll need:



  • ĺ to 1 pound of hamburger meat


  • 2 to 3 jalapeno peppers, deseeded and sliced


  • Mayonnaise


  • Sriracha sauce


  • An avocado, sliced


  • Pepper jack cheese


  • Whole wheat slider buns




Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Press the hamburger meat into six to eight equally sized patties. Place the patties in an oven-safe dish with a meat tray to allow the grease to drain and cook them for about 20 minutes or cooked throughout. During the final few minutes of cooking, top the burgers with the cheese to allow it to melt.

While the burgers cook, slice the avocados and fry them in a small skillet until the skin starts to blacken. Mix mayonnaise and Sriracha sauce to your liking.

To serve, spread the mayonnaise on the slider buns. Layer the ingredients starting with the burger, followed by a few jalapeno and avocado slices.
