Carbless-Low Calorie Turkey Lettuce Wraps

"I'm not a huge participant in the low-no carb dieting. However, I am always concerned with my calorie intake. I find the easiest way to cut calories, is to cut out unneccessary carbs. One day, I decided to throw out the tortilla and try wrapping my meal in a lettuce leaf. You get the great taste and nutrition of a regular turkey sandwich or wrap, without the extra 200+ calories or added carbs. It's fast, easy, health and tasty!"

    I used to eat these when I was dieting and they became a lifestyle with me. I use romain lettuce because it makes a nice fold to hold the meat. My favorite is Ocsar Myer oven roasted turkey. I sometimes sprinkle some sunflower seeds or other salad toppings to give a little crunch. I make up 6 at a time , cut in half, and place in a zip lock container in the fridge, and snack off them all day.

    I eat a variation of this all the time- I mash up kidney beans, add chopped onions and coarse black pepper, and top it with spicy mustard in the lettuce wrap. Delish!

    I love this recipe, but I leave out the mayonnaise and the onion. Dijon mustard works well all by itself. Sometimes I add a slice of low-fat ham. Yum! Makes a great snack that satisfies.

    this recipe has got to be my favorite lunch time meal! I used a tsp of dijonnaise instead of mayo and it gave the wrap a really good kick. This recipe is healthy, quick and absolutely delicious~! BUT i don't really find it to be all that filling. I have 2 and even after that I'm still a little hungry, so i'll usually hold my self over with an apple (or other kind of fruit)

    I made this for my friend who lives next door this afternoon using chicken breast instead of the turkey. She loved it and gives it an A+.(She's a personal fitness trainer). Thank you for posting! I think this is really GREAT!

I've lived all over, due to my mother being in the United States Air Force. Some of the places I lived are: Northern California, Illinois and Misawa Japan. I spent most of my "growing up" years in Northern California. Therefore I have a deep appriciation for wines, cheese, cultural foods, healthy foods, and other fine foods. Foods is my number one passion. However, I'm constantly watching my weight so I always do it in moderation and health conscienceness. I suscripe to Bon Apetite, which happens to be one of the best magaizines in the world! lol and It helps me with my recipes and ideas on cooking. Other things I enjoy besdies eating and cooking are: shopping, music and watching tv/movies. I have a couple hobbies aside from cooking too. I like collecting penguin stuff, because I love penguins. I also am into cars. I appriciate all kinds, imports (japnanese and german), and the classic american cars (shelby mustangs, belairs, 60's cameros etc.). I'm also into dogs and dog breeding, mainly shiba inus (a japanese breed). Other than that my life is filled with school, work and partying (of course)!
