Put This Healthy Wrap On Your Lunch Menu
If you’re currently utilising a lower carb diet plan, lettuce wraps are an excellent choice to include in your diet plan.
The great thing about wraps is they’ll allow you to fit in far more vegetables than you ever would a sandwich, greatly increasing your overall nutritional intake.
This wrap takes things even further because the wrap itself is a vegetable.

200-250g ground turkey breast meat
1 egg white
1 tbsp. freshly chopped fresh dill
¼ onion, finely diced
1 mushroom, finely diced
4 half-pineapple rings
