Unfortunately I just wrote this whole post in a coffee shop in cold spring and then it was mysteriously erased. I am writing again from my phone so “bear” with me! Get it, Clare bear, hah ha.
i digress. I am usually religious about posting but I have been juggling a few things and my food blog is suffering. I made this twice recently, with and without ginger, and I missed the ginger!
I have always thought lettuce wraps seemed like something I would like but I had not ever tried them before because I did not want to be another fit lady waxing poetic on the subject of lean protein. I was secretly judging myself and as I have now jumped on the chicken lettuce wrap bandwagon, I feel liberated. Not from everything, but certainly of my burden of judging myself for thinking lettuces leave are nature’s perfect taco shell. I feel envigorated to talk about the wonders of egg white breakfast sandwiches and my own personal favorite- turkey bacon and Brussels sprouts sauté. Truthfully when eating an omelette I don’t omit the center of the egg, but as a light breakfast sandwich with veggies, I find egg whites delicious- no yolking!
It was hard to find a recipe which was not for an impossible to replicate chain restaurant version, but I managed. As a lover of the occasional plate of pancakes from Denny’s I am not completely opposed to chain restaurant recipes, but many of the recipes I had to weed through had so much sugar I would not be able to eat them.
