Vegan Beyond Meat Thai Lettuce Wraps are a great recipe when you are looking for something healthy or are trying to “eat clean”.  They are simple to make, scrumptious, and packed with flavor.  I like how customizable they are because you can add any toppings of your choosing when creating your lettuce wraps.  If you are unfamiliar with lettuce wraps, think of them as a taco but with a lettuce leaf instead of a tortilla or taco shell. The recipe can be found here. Start by preparing the Beyond Meat.  I personally like to use Beyond Meat in a lot of recipes and think it fits well with the flavors in this recipe.  It also makes this recipe vegan if you follow a vegan lifestyle.  If you don’t, feel free to substitute the Beyond Meat with ground chicken, ground turkey, or ground beef.

Greek Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Tzatziki Sauce are super easy to make, healthy, and refreshing.  They are packed with zesty chicken, cool cucumbers, crisp tomato and onion, and tangy tzatziki sauce.  It’s a burst of Mediterranean flavor!  For us, these are simple weeknight meal.  However, they would make great lunches because you can meal prep ahead of time and they are pretty light vs. filling.

The recipe can be found here. Start by making the Tzatziki Sauce.  Add the Greek yogurt, cucumber, lemon juice, dill, garlic powder, and salt to a mixing bowl.  Stir to combine.  Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. I’ve found that … Continue reading

Cashew Chicken Lettuce Wraps are a delicious, low carb dinner option, and are better than takeout!  That’s right…. I said it.  Sometimes homemade meals are better than takeout.  These lettuce wraps are restaurant style and come together in about 20 minutes.  They are filled with tender chicken, cashews, ginger, garlic, and plenty of heat!  Each lettuce wrap is full of flavor and make quite the healthy meal option. The recipe can be found here. Start by slicing the chicken into 1-inch pieces.  Then, season with salt and pepper and set aside.  An alternate option would be to substitute ground chicken or ground turkey if you prefer.  You obviously don’t need to slice either of those but should still season with salt and pepper. In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken stock, soy sauce, ginger, hoisin sauce, rice wine vinegar, and cornstarch.  Whisk until well combined and set aside.  The flavors … Continue reading
