In my family these lettuce wraps are a staple. They are so simple to make, healthy and fill you up fast. If you work full time, always running to take the kids to an activity or are finding easy healthy ways to care for yourself and feed the loved one you are caring for, this recipe is a winner!
1 pkg of lean ground turkey
1 pkg taco mix (any flavor optional)
1 head romaine lettuce
Start cooking turkey on stove top, when starting to brown add in chopped tomato and onion. Sprinkle desired taco mix in. Cook on stove top for 15 mins. Scoop mixture into the middle of each lettuce leaf.
You can use any meat (beef/ tuna) and any vegetable you have in the fridge. Extra toppings could be low fat yogurt, salsa or your favorite salad dressing to dip on the side.
Caregiver Tip of the Day: Focus on what you are able to provide and don't sweat the small stuff.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
