Eat That Leaf

What’s crisper than a nice crunchy piece of lettuce? Not much. That’s why you should ditch the bread and start using it.

Take those amazingly addictive lettuce wraps at P.F. Changs as an example for a much healthier snack.  You could put your very own at-home spin on them, which is not only healthy but also cheap!

Now I’m a complete advocate for all things lettuce: salad, wraps, toppings and any everything else. I just don’t think people realize how great this is, so here’s a recipe that I love that is healthy, delicious, and doesn’t fill you up so you can eat a few of these and not feel like a fatty.

James Duigan: Ultimate Clean & Lean Lettuce Wrap
(Brought to you by me with help from www.sheerluxe.com)

Ingredients
4 leaves iceberg lettuce
4 slices roast turkey
½ cucumber, sliced
250g hummus
Sprinkle of paprika

Put the toppings on the lettuce as if it were bread and roll it up! You can place a toothpick in the wrap to hold it together for easy keeping or just while you’re eating. You can also add other ingredients such as: cheese, garlic, seasonings, other meats, no meat, beans, etc.

If you try this out, comment below and let me know how it goes!
