20120909-190207.jpg

This is the PERFECT dinner when you are not starving, skipped your workout for the day or is your scheduled day off, want to feel leaner tomorrow and/or you just want to eat clean & Amy Approved 🙂  NOW if you ran 10 miles and did an Amy circuit you will feel like this is only your appetizer 🙂

Turkey Lettuce Wraps
1 pound ground turkey burger
1 zucchini
1 onion
1 tbsp unrefined organic coconut oil (I buy my coconut oil HERE)
1 avocado
1 tomato
Salt / Pepper
Spices as desired (I used organic onion powder, garlic powder, cilantro, basil – I buy my organic spices HERE)

In your coconut oil saute the onion for 1-2 minutes.  Throw in the turkey burger (you can also use grass fed beef, ground chicken, moose or bison) & brown.  Add the chopped zucchini, salt/pepper & desired spices.  In meantime wash your lettuce, chop your avo’s & tomato.  Once the meat mixture is done, pile everything high on your lettuce wraps and ENJOY!

What’s In Your Salad?

20120503-192357.jpg
Make a huge salad at dinner so you have leftovers for a few lunches. The next day throw on a protein source (fish, chicken, lean beef, pork or turkey) & chunk up a small sweet potato or butternut squash. Easy, quick & clean lunch!
