Nobody wants to eat plain chicken, yams, and broccoli every night. I think a lot of the reason I stay disciplined with my nutrition is I actually enjoy the food I eat on a regular basis. Finding creative recipes, and flavours you enjoy will make clean eating a habit you can keep up with for more than a week. Try this this quick, and easy on a busy weeknight and you will have a delicious dinner, and leftovers ready in 20 min or less! Asian Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps
