Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce Wraps:
These turned out really good! I kind of just did my own thing, after reading a few recipe’s. They were so tasty, and perfect for lunch or dinner!

One thing, your supposed to wrap these with bibb lettuce. I thought that was the normal head of lettuce you buy. It’s not haha and actual bibb lettuce works much better so make sure you get that!

You really can use whatever you want. This is what I used.

  • Green Cabbage
  • Red Cabbage
  • Red Pepper
  • Yellow Onion
  • Garlic Cloves (Minced)
  • Carrots
  • Water Chestnuts(I wouldn’t use these next time, they really didn’t add anything)
  • Kikoman’s Low Sodium Teriyaki sauce
  • Skinless/Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • Lettuce (I used a head of lettuce, you should use bibb lettuce)
I pretty much just chopped the vegetables up, and steamed them for a little bit. While they were steaming I cooked the chicken and cut that up. I then added the chicken to the veggies and added 2 tbsp of the teriyaki sauce. I mixed it all together letting the sauce cover everything and voila I was done :)
You then scoop some onto the lettuce, wrap it up and enjoy :D
Delicious and easy!
How much you use of each ingredient is totally up to you, and how much you want or need.



A Healthier Lifestyle :D

I am very much enjoying this healthier lifestyle of mine. I feel so good about all the choices I am making which makes me more determined to continue!

I just signed up for Team Training at Lifetime, which I am so excited about. It’s going to be 3 times a week for 3 months. I can’t wait to start (I begin on the 20th)

Tonight Heidi (my friend, and my best friend’s mother) tried out the Sunday night Zumba class which I think has made it’s way into a permanent spot in my schedule. It was fun seeing another trainer’s moves. I love both the Thursday and Sunday classes. I’m excited to shake my booty twice a week now! :D

On top of working on being more active, I’ve also been trying new (healthier) foods. I have a habit of buying new foods, or buying a lot of healthier foods but still buying the stuff I normally do and then I would just let the healthier or new foods go bad while I ate the other stuff. This time I got ONLY healthier foods, and lots and lots of produce.

The two things I am really excited for are:

1. Kale Chips

2. Lettuce Wraps

I love lettuce wraps. My friend Kayla and I just had some delicious ones at The Wild Onion over the weekend. I also always get them at P.F. Changs. Depending on what sauce is put into the chicken/veggie mixture there not always the best choice but when you make them yourself you can decide just how healthy they are!

I realized something while we were out for dinner, eating the lettuce wraps. Never in my life would I ever order them if I read what was in them. I just wouldn’t .. or at least that’s how I used to be. I was introduced to lettuce wraps by just being told to try them so I did, and loved them. I’ve never read a description of them until Saturday. That made me realize how much other foods I would normally shrug off because it has so many foods I don’t eat normally. Not anymore though!

I’ve decided to set up a recipe page so I can share delicious recipes as I find them :) I have a few other recipes that I used to make a long time ago. Once I find my book in the garage (I am currently working on getting it all cleaned out .. fun project ;/) I will share those with you as well!

I also just signed up to do a 5k marathon with Heidi. We will be walking it this time (she can’t run it because of her knee, and I am no where near ready to run a 5k) but it’s still going to be so much fun and I can’t wait!!

I know a few of my other friends have been really focused on having a healthy lifestyle. It’s so fun reading about what your doing, your progress, and how it’s making you feel. Keep it up :)
