#RECIPEFRIDAY: Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps!

Hey everyone and...

Happy #RECIPEFRIDAY to you!

I can't even tell you how busy my week has been...

On all fronts! (Trust me, I'm not complaining as my busyness has been tied to some pretty exciting things!)

Feeling good ;)

That being said though..

I'm glad I have the day off so I can get my thoughts together and charge ahead! (I'm also heading to Toronto for a week next week so I got lots to prepare before I make my way there!)

I get to enjoy my Nespresso slowly and ever so presently :)

Remember I talked about running a 5K race in Toronto on May 5?


That's next weekend! (I'm super excited about it because we are having a huge FitFluential meet-up!!! I'm debating on dressing up for the race...I'm thinking of wearing the Banana suit!)

I haven't talked about this Banana suit here on the blog have I?


SuperFit organized a FUn event at my gym where we got together for the Harlem shake! (Click on the link to view it, I can't seem to upload it...hmmmm!)

It was a blast no doubt!


Okay so on with #RECIPEFRIDAY yes?


I have my fellow Florida Fitness Aylmer Teammate who will be sharing one of her favourite recipes!

Say HI to...

As I know competition dieting can be quite 'limiting' (with what ingredients you can to pick and choose from)...

I knew Chantal would have something to share that was FUn and tasty so....

I asked her to submit something she's been loving!

What is it?

Well, it's...

Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps!

by Chantal

  • 1 lbs ground turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • ¼ red, yellow, red and green peppers
  • ¼ sweet onion
  • 1 packet Stevia
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Using cooking spray fry garlic, onion and peppers together, once softened add ground turkey and cook through. Once completely cooked add soya sauce ,stevia and chili flakes. You may need to add a bit of water so the ingredients can mix well.
  2. Use any kind of lettuce that will hold the turkey mixture, I find the best lettuce for this is romaine.
