These Buffalo Wing Lettuce Wraps are one of my healthy go-tos! Ground turkey or beef in a buffalo sauce topped with blue cheese, carrots, and celery.

Buffalo Wing Wraps


Let me start off by saying eating healthy is absolutely no fun. Except for the getting skinnier part…that’s fun.

Right now everyone is looking for healthy recipes and all I want to do is make the ten Super Bowl recipes I’ve been gawking at. These lettuce wraps are my compromise between eating healthy and diving head first into some cheesy gooey dip.Buffalo Wing Wraps

Why does it seem so much easier for guys to lose weight? Last year my husband and I both ate the same healthy food and both were doing P90x every day. He trimmed down and had a six pack and the only six pack I had was the Diet Dr. Pepper in my pantry.

I swear he takes some magic pill that melts fat while I’m sleeping. Don’t worry…if I ever find out I will let you know.

And just so you know he does not like to be called skinny. He said that would be the same as him calling me fat. Trim. Trim is his goal.

My husband and I decided these Buffalo Wing Turkey Wraps are healthy food for people who don’t want to eat healthy.
These low carb wraps are packed with protein, veggies, and flavor. As you know my husband is obsessed with anything buffalo flavored. You can use ground turkey or chicken.

1/2 cup of Buffalo wing sauce is the perfect amount of heat in my opinion.

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey, (ground chicken can be used too)
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced finely
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Don't feel like you have to have the dressing and crumbles to make these...they are good with just the crumbles too.
