So, as some of you may know, my legs have caused some issues with my fitness lately. I have been on a running hiatus until they can figure out what the heck is going on with my circulation and the numbness. Anyway, the no running has caused me to pack on a bit more weight. Recently I have switched to T25 (with the low impact option) and Shakeology. I have also changed my eating habits and the combo has resulted in me dropping 2 pant sizes after 3 wks. SWEET! Well, I wanted to share tonight’s dinner. Homemade Turkey sloppy Joe lettuce wraps. Oh my goodness it was surprisingly amazing.
Here’s what you will need:
1 tablespoon coconut
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
3 tbsp dark brown sugar
3 tbsp cup barbecue sauce (I used Rudy’s BBQ…YUM)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
pinch of kosher salt and black pepper
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, onion, and garlic, breaking the meat up with a spoon, cook until browned about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and Adobo.
2. Mix the tomato sauce, sugar, barbecue sauce, and Worcestershire into the turkey mixture; season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Spoon mixture into the lettuce scoops and serve promptly.
I must apologize now. Your family table will feel like you are eating alone. With your family devouring your healthy creation you might actually hear a pin drop!
