Turkey Tuesday recipe

Happy #TurkeyTuesday !

One of my go-to dishes when I want a) something healthy and delicious b) a meal with a good source of lean protein and c) something I can whip up quick, I make these lettuce wrapped turkey tacos topped with avo-sour cream which is to die for.

Oh! And it's a perfect meal to prep ahead of time too... because left overs are just as tasty, if not better. 

I love cooking with lean turkey meat because it can help reduce blood cholesterol levels and promote heart health. It is also low in calories and fat, but high in proteins and B-vitamins so its a great alternative to ground beef and tastes delicious too.  Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey   is 93% lean and is California-grown and organic. They don't use any antibiotics, hormones or added steroids and are fed an organic vegetarian diet - all of which are important to me when I choose my meats. 

Next time you're in the kitchen meal prepping or thinking about what to eat for dinner, try giving this yummy recipe a try!
