[RECIPE]Mango Lettuce Wraps

When it comes to lunch or dinner, “quick and easy” is often the name of the game for many of us. As I aim to cut refined sugars out of my diet (read: say goodbye to my beloved breads), finding ways to substitute carbohydrates with healthier options has become priority. These mango pineapple chicken wraps are a tropical twist on a modern staple and are simple enough for even the busiest of us to prepare.
