Turkey Thai Lettuce Wraps

Turkey Thai Lettuce Wraps. They’re such a cute and fun way to eat your protein and your veggies! I absolutely love how much flavor is packed in every bite, and how many different textures can be experienced from all of the fun ingredients that are used.

They are super versatile too, as they can make for a colorful appetizer, an awesome healthy lunch or a satisfying light dinner. Recipes like these are great to have in your recipe arsenal (or pinned on Instagram for later use), because if you know that your kids, husband or friends really enjoy these, you know you can prepare some for them in a jiffy whether it’s noon, 4pm or 8pm. It’ll be easy peasy for you and delicious for them!

Just yesterday I was devouring two of these yummies, in between lunch and dinner, to keep me from going hangry (as I try to avoid that “beast” at all cost, haha) and to get an extra push of energy to finish up some work I still had to do. They totally hit the spot and accomplished their goal, keeping me completely satisfied and energized. Love these delicious little bundles of joy!
