Lettuce Wraps

Forgoing bread can be one of the quickest ways to cut some unnecessary carbs and calories.  I guess I wouldn't call this a recipe, but more a can stuff your leaves with whatever you have lying around whether it be leftovers from the night before, or 3 week old produce on the verge of growing white fuzzies :-)
You can think of lettuce as replacing bread on a sandwich or you can think of it as a handheld salad.  For example, you could stuff it with chicken, walnuts, strawberries and blue cheese and dip it in a raspberry vinaigrette.
Serve your wraps with some fruit, I chose half of a grapefruit sprinkled with Truvia, and you have yourself a well-rounded, and surprisingly satisfying, lunch :-)

Romaine Lettuce
Thin-sliced Turkey from the deli
Center cut or turkey bacon
1 T. Yogurt-based Ranch Dressing (to dip)

Roll it up, Dip it, Eat it
