Easy Low Carb Recipe You’ll Love

A turkey taco lettuce wrap is a perfect snack or dinner if you are trying to eat less carbs and calories. When I make my low carb recipes, I love to use turkey.

Ground turkey is perfect for these easy turkey taco lettuce wraps. It is lower in calories than ground beef and when seasoned with taco seasoning, it tastes delicious!

Swap out a traditional tortilla for a leaf of lettuce to cut the carbs, but not the crunch.

Recently, I have been adjusting my diet to be more low carb, gluten-free and dairy-free. That is a big change and I thought this would be challenging, but I have really enjoyed creating new recipes that are healthy and light. This lettuce wrap taco is one of my favorites.

What Kind of Lettuce Do You Use For Tacos?

For turkey tacos, I recommend iceberg lettuce. It’s is the best choice because it provides the crunchy feel of a real corn taco shell without the added carbs. Plus the flavor is mild and won’t overpower the taste of the turkey meat mixture.

Are Lettuce Wraps Good for Weight Loss?

Lettuce wraps are a smart way to cut carbs and calories. Swap out the corn or flour tortilla for a crunchy leaf of lettuce and you’ll cut a lot of calories.

The good news is that you can eat more healthy veggies and high-protein meat. Of course, always check with your doctor because low-carb diets are not for everyone.

Is Dairy Free Cheese Healthier Than Dairy Cheese?

I love cheese, but for my turkey taco lettuce wrap recipe, I decided to try dairy-free cheese. It was delicious!

For this taco recipe, I used Daiya dairy-free shredded cheese. Dairy-free cheese is made from plant-based proteins and can be lower in fat. For lactose-intolerant people, dairy-free cheese is a great alternative when making this turkey taco recipe.

  1. I just can’t wrap my head around “Dairy free” cheese. I just used shredded carrots for the cheese. Great recipe.
