Friday Foodspiration: Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

All the complex flavors of Thai take out without the questionable ingredients or allergens like peanut oils, soy, and MSG.

The good news is, herbs like ginger, turmeric, and cilantro often found in Thai cuisine are anti inflammatory and aid in detoxification. So when we use whole food ingredients, and avoid the inflammatory oils, we have a meal that will leave you lean and satisfied instead of tired and bloated.

Despite what appears to be a long list of ingredients, this dish is actually a lot simpler than it appear. It takes only about 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to cook. Save more time by doubling the recipe for a quick lunch or next night dinner leftovers.
