TLT Lettuce Wraps

Nutritional Bonus: The thick creaminess of nonfat Greek yogurt is a perfect substitute for both low-fat sour cream and regular yogurt when making dips and sauces. Most of the milk whey is removed during Greek yogurt's triple-straining process, which results in a thick consistency and full-fat taste. It's also high in protein - about 20 g per cup, roughly double that of regular yogurt.

"You need very few dishes to make this tasty snack. Wash, slice and dice, then put it all together in just 10 minutes. Super snappy! My husband came in from work at 12 am and warmed up the recipe for a quick midnight wrap snack. It's not heavy at all, so eating them late is guilt free! A mini meal full of protein and veggies."
