Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Quick Apple Chutney
If fat loss is your goal, then it’s important to keep your dinners light. Avoid eating rich, carb-filled foods at night and you’ll make steady progress towards your fitness goal.
Recipes like the one below will help you quickly reach your fat loss goal. The shredded cauliflower, rice, and onions in this recipe make an amazing substitution for grain-based pilaf. With the addition of lean, ground turkey, and lettuce this comfort-food tasting meal is actually quite lean and green.
It’s also a fantastic recipe to enjoy for lunch too!
