Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Mkay have you heard of the Fit2Fat2Fit guy??? FABULOUS!  Personal Trainer, Drew Manning, was in SUPREME shape. He decided to embark upon a journey to understand his clients more. He spent 6 months, letting himself GO! Didn't work out. Ate like CRAPOLA. Gained a TON of weight. Lost his 6 pack COMPLETELY. Then he spent 6 months getting back in shape. It worked. It was hard, but it worked. I think that/he is AMAZING! and INSPIRING!

Anywhoos, while checking on his progress a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a recipe of his. Of course, I made a few Jami-fications before we had it tonight. OHMIGOSH! SO AMAZINGLY GOOD it is hard to believe it is healthy!  Here's how it went down:

Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps



Ground Turkey (3lbs)
Fresh Garlic minced (9 cloves)
Fresh Ginger Root grated (6 Tbsp)
Green Peppers diced (3 peppers)
Red Pepper Flakes (1 Tbsp)

Brown the ground turkey. Drain off the fat (mine didn't have much fat left so I left it in there because I was omitting the oil from the sauce portion). Add garlic, ginger, green pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook until green peppers are soft.

Peanut Butter (6 Tbsp)
Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (2 1/2 limes worth)
Soy Sauce (6 Tbsp... honestly I just shook it in there a bit)
Cilantro (almost an entire bunch)

Put the cilantro into a food chopper (I leave the stems... easier that way) with the lime juice. Pulverize the CRUD of it. Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce and cilantro/lime mix together. Add this sauce to the meat mixture. Stir it up to incorporate and then remove from the heat and let it cool down a bit.

Romaine Lettuce Leaves (washed)

Spoon the meat mixture into the lettuce leave and pull up the sides of the lettuce like a taco and ENJOY! So good you won't believe it is healthy!!!
