  • I agree completely. They are so easy to make and healthy. I am no a fan of bread although I will enjoy a slice of Sour Dough if I
    am in San Francisco. Lettuce wrapes arethe first choice in our house.

  • Lettuce wraps need to be more of a thing! I’m glad you wrote this post, I feel like they were starting to fall out of style. There’s no need to wrap every meal we eat in carbs and sugars, it’s much better to wrap them in fiber and vitamins! If you eat these at a normal pace, and drink plenty of water, 3 of them will leave you feeling pretty stuffed. Not like with bread, where the insulin response 20 minutes later will leave you feeling hungry again! Great recipe!
