Day 78- Thai Lettuce Wraps

Do you have any recipes that you know you love,
you know your family loves, but for some
reason you don't make it very often?
Well this is one of those recipes for me!

My family LOVES this recipe-
we have been making these for so long,
I couldn't even begin to track down
where the original recipe came from.

Believe me, make an effort to
have ALL the ingredients if at all
possible. The unique combination of
fresh ginger, mint, cilantro and lime
is amazing! Every one of your taste buds
will pop with joy as you eat these.
And made with ground turkey,
these come in at less than 100 calories

Go, go NOW to get these yummy ingredients!
