Healthy Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps



Alright, let's be honest here... this is basically a salad.


There are no crunchy taco shells or soft flour tortillas. Just a ton of spicy veggies, some perfectly-seasoned ground turkey, fresh avocado, parsley and cherry tomatoes and my favourite ever lime yogurt crema.


And yet, this recipe totally nails it all! Seriously... I don't even miss the taco shell!


Here's why:

  • It's filled with lots of protein.

  • It has more veggies than you'd ever eat in a taco or wrap.

  • It has bold flavours and spices that taste amazing.

  • It's light, so it doesn't weigh you down.

  • It's the perfect summertime meal.

  • It makes the BEST meal prep! (Which is why I've accounted for 5 servings here!)

  • It's also just super fun to eat. (I mean, who doesn't like eating a salad taco-style!?)

Truly, it's the best of both worlds. These Healthy Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps have been one of my go-to meals all summer, and I just can't wait to share it with you today!
