Turkey Lettuce Wraps

This is one of my favorite dinner recipes to make. Every time I make it, my husband says he could eat it everyday. With limited ingredients and quick prep, this dinner is a weekly go-to for me and I always have a little left over for lunch the next day. I'll take the leftover meat and throw it over some quinoa and add some avocado. No warm-up needed!

5-DAY FIX: Beat the Bloat

A 5-day guide to reducing bloat and healing gut inflammation significantly.

Jac's Guac (amole)

Nothing says summertime like a big bowl of fresh guacamole and some delicious corn chips (organic, of course)! I came up with this recipe last summer and it's a staple hit for all parties I attend. People will call me and request it in advance. It is super easy to make and a great way to incorporate healthy fats into the diet.

Ingredients:

4 large ripe organic avocados or 6 smaller ones**

2 large organic tomatoes (diced)

¼ cup chopped red onion

½ a small jalapeno chopped

3 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro (no stems)

2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. crushed red pepper

Juice from one squeezed lime

Salt and pepper to taste

Fun summer option: 1-2 chopped mangos (skin removed)

1)      Cut avocado in half, remove seed, and scoop out insides into a mixing bowl

2)      Smash avocado

3)      Chop up all other veggies and herbs as listed above

4)      Mix in all the herbs and onion except one tbsp. of fresh cilantro

5)      Move to a nicer platter and top with diced tomato and fresh cilantro

6)      To keep fresh longer, place saran wrap tight right on the guacamole so it doesn’t turn brown

** If you need to ripen you avocados faster, place in a paper bag with one banana. Don’t ask me how it works, it’s just perfect magic! Enjoy!
