Allergy friendly turkey lettuce wraps. 

Happy Friday friends!

Whew, it has been a very busy week! Between all the Easter activities at school, whipping up new recipes in the kitchen and battling allergies, I am ready for the weekend!!!

The more I learn about my own health needs and the more I find out what I can and cannot eat, it seems like the less I can eat.  But, I am SO thankful that I still can eat many things and have found wonderful products that are allergy friendly to make life a little easier sometime! One ingredient I am really thankful for is coco aminos!  Soy and gluten free plus organic and non GMO! Makes me one happy girl!

Today for Foodie Friday I am linking up today with Farrah from Fairyburger and  Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for allergy friendly themed week!



  • 1 large red pepper chopped into thin slices
  • 1 water chestnuts drained and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp + 1-2 tsp coco aminos
  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • Mini romain lettuce


  1.  Brown turkey in a large frying pan then drain and rinse.
  2. In the large pan sauté the garlic in 1- 1 1/2 Tbsp of avocado oil. Add in the ginger powder and 2 Tbsp coco aminos.
  3. Add water chestnuts to the large pan, sauté for 3-5 min.
  4. Return turkey to large pan and mix well. (You can add more aminos if you desire more flavor)
  5. Sauté red pepper in a small frying pan with 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil for 5 min. Add the 1-2 tsp coco aminos.
  6. Separate romaine leaves, rinse and dry.
  7. Build each lettuce wrap and enjoy 🙂
