I have been working really hard the last two weeks to eat fairly clean avoiding processed foods, carbs, and sugars when I can. I don’t do this all the time but try to maybe 80 percent of the time. It has made me be a little more innovative in order to think up tasty meal ideas. I made these lettuce wraps for lunch and they were so good. The quinoa and chicken help to bulk up the wraps and fill you. This would be great with feta sprinkled on top too! I had leftovers so I mixed the quinoa, chicken and greek salad together and it made for a great salad.
