That’s a Wrap

A

Today I’m bringing you a fresh + healthy recipe that will make your tastebuds sing. I’ll go ahead and warn you though, don’t let the fairly long list of ingredients scare you from trying this one! I promise it’s a really quick + easy recipe to throw together!

I like to start by getting all my ingredients prepped (chopping all the veggies, getting the lettuce cups ready, etc). The ground turkey (or beef, your choice) will cook quickly, and then it’s just matter creating the lettuce wrap with all the fresh ingredients you’ve prepped.

This is a great weeknight recipe, and I always make enough to take leftovers to work for lunch the next day. Easy to assemble and co-workers will always look on enviously.

    I love lettuce wraps. The crunchier the better. I don’t do meat, but the rest of the ingredients looks absolutely scrumptious. Thanks for sharing.

    It doesn’t appear to be too much of a bother to fix, which makes it a cinch to make right now in fact. See ‘ya!

    Looks delicious! I will definitely be giving this a try-perhaps without the meat though 😉
