Quick, easy and tasty! This meal is a winner for family dinner and it makes the best leftovers (if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers).  My kids loved wrapping the meat up in little “packages” to eat.  And there really is something fun about eating something wrapped up in cute little butter lettuce leaves.  Feel free to sub in whatever lettuce you have on hand.

I love this meal because it's light and refreshing.  The macros are super protein heavy, and super low carb.  20 P, 3 C, 7 F

I'm fairly new to it. It makes the [...]
