I am currently in a meal prep FRENZY on this new gut protocol program! I am prepping breakfasts, lunches, and dinners to reset my gut and improve my overall health. So it's crazy over in my kitchen, but I DO LOVE having everything prepped and ready to go - even if I don't love doing it in the moment. These ground turkey lettuce wraps are great meal-prep foods and taste great hot or cold (like when I'm too busy with the twins or my new business to even pop them in the microwave!). What about you? Do you love or hate meal prep? Let me know in the comments below!
1 tsp. olive oil
1 lb. raw 93% lean ground turkey breast
½ medium red onion, chopped
½ medium red bell pepper
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
⅔ cup chopped water chestnuts
1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 large head lettuce (like red leaf, romaine, or Bibb), separated into leaves
Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add turkey, onion, and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until turkey is cooked through and onion is translucent.
Add garlic, water chestnuts, soy sauce, and vinegar; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
Add cilantro; mix well. Remove from heat.
Evenly spoon mixture onto lettuce leaves; wrap the leaves around mixture, and eat!
