Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Turkey Lettuce Wraps


OH MY GOODNESS!!! I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD.  I thought I was going to have to give up my taco tuesdays to stay on target with the EXTREME workout program.  Well I do not!!! I have these amazing turkey lettuce wraps that are totally 21 Day Fix Extreme Friendly and I made a HUGE batch of the turkey meat so that I could have it as a pre prepped lunch.  All I have to do is heat up the turkey meat and then break off the lettuce leaves.  It is so relish and full of flavor.  The whole family had them and they just added some extra goodies like sour cream, avocado and cheese.  This will certainly stay in the rotation.  You could even add in some Quinoa and black beans if you wanted to spice it up a little more. Oh my..the ideas of what else I can do with these are spiraling as I write this.  Anyway, here you go!!!
