Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce WrapsWe are all most likely attempting to start off the year the right way, and one of those ways is to eat more healthy. I have asked many people in the last week, and the common theme is to eat more healthier foods, eat in moderation, or somewhere in between. With that said, I am more on the eat in moderation side, but when it comes to eating healthier, I do have some nice choices around. One of those is lettuce wraps. Often times we get caught up in the idea of eating a sandwich for lunch, dinner, or on the weekend. I know it is an easy go to for me. The sandwich, for the most part, always contains two slices of bread. Well, here is an idea; replace the bread with your favorite lettuce. This is really simple to throw together and with the right ingredients, and right sauce, you are on your way to a healthier sandwich, or should I say wrap?

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite lettuce (I use the inner section of romaine)
  • Angel Hair pasta, cooked and cooled
  • Sliced Carrots
  • Sliced Cucumber
  • Sliced Green Onion
  • Meat (optional)
  • Sauce/Dressing (optional)

Once you have all of your ingredients together, simply layer, add your sauce, or spoon as you go, fold like a taco, and go to town. Trust me on this one, these wraps leave you feeling a lot healthier than you would if you were to go for a turkey, ham, or roast beef sandwich.

Question for you… what do you put in your wrap?

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
