Pepper Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Serves 4
I will be honest, when my husband said he was making dinner one night I was a little worried. Not that he isn't a good cook because he definitely is but because I have been cooking all our "clean" meals for quite some time. I wasn't sure what he would come up with ... man was I pleasantly surprised!

    • Brooke – This should be 4 healthy servings. Measure out your red container worth of turkey and then your lettuce wraps per your plan.

    • Luticia – You are correct. Technically soy sauce isn’t in the freebie list so I played by the rules and excluded it. Doesn’t mean you can’t have it in moderation and count it as a tsp since there is oil. I’m all about flexibility.

  1. Sorry so confused Am I measuring out 1 red, 11/2 green, and a yellow? this seems like to much? and if you do it like this you are not actually getting the whole amounts of what each container holds. Sorry to sound dumb but I am so confused.

    • That is correct. The turkey is a red (you would measure that out. The Pepper, Onion, and Lettuce are 1.5 green. The rice is a yellow.
