Craving Chinese takeout, but want a healthier option? These healthy ground turkey lettuce wraps are so good!

Healthy ground turkey lettuce wraps are a lower sodium and low carb option for lunch or dinner in a hurry. Trust me, these are awesome. I even forget all about the chow-mein and fried rice.

These wraps are quick, easy and ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. If you need to use up some romaine and you’re tired of salads, this recipe is a new way to do it! These are so good, you’ll definitely be making them again. They look amazing and taste amazing! Great recipe to use when having guests who don’t mind getting a little messy.

Cashews and sesame seeds are my favorite ingredients to add into stirfrys and Asian style recipes! The crunch and flavor take it up a notch while adding some healthy fats.

Healthy Ground Turkey Wraps Nutrition Info:

Romaine: Very low-calorie and carbohydrate, contains vitamin C, vitamin A, fiber and zero fat. Light and easy!

Ground Turkey: Look for lean sources and lower sodium. Just like ground beef, there are different varieties that contain different amounts of fat. The fat in ground turkey may come from added turkey skin or dark meat.

Cashews: Nuts are packed with heart-healthy fats. They are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, provide plant based protein, fiber, minerals including copper, zinc and magnesium.

Sesame Seeds: contain copper, manganese, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, molybdenum, vitamin B1, selenium and dietary fiber. Sprinkle some on!
