The Best Healthy Ground Turkey Lettuce Wrap Recipe

Best Healthy Ground Turkey Lettuce Wrap Recipe

With my husband and I eating healthier and cleaner it has actually been a challenge to get creative with the few foods we choose to make meals with. We are not eating rices, pasta, breads or cheese. The only grain we allow ourselves is a slice of ezekiel bread in the morning or whole grain bars. This Best Healthy Ground Turkey Lettuce Wrap recipe is easy to make and very healthy.

Turkey wrap ingredients

The best part about this recipe is the flavor of the meat and the versatility of the recipe. You can easily substitute your own spices for mine. You can also choose your own toppings. In this recipe we top our wraps with diced tomatoes and raw almonds we crush. The crunch of the romaine and the almonds is fantastic.

Good Snacks Choice – Loacker Better-For-You Snack Brand

2 weeks ago I decided to join my husband in his attempt to change his diet. He is doing a low carb, no red meat diet. That means no breads, pastas, beef and snacks. Only approved healthy snacks for small cravings. This is hard so it was easier for me to just join him so I’m not cooking separate meals. With my son I just add biscuits or extra servings for his younger body that needs the calories. My husband does not eat sweets but I do crave them at times. This is why I approved Loacker as a better snack choice.
