Featured Member Recipe ~ Warm & Savory Thai Wrap!
Who doesn’t love warm, Thai style lettuce wraps!? This featured recipe from Tone It Up team member, Shrade, offers the perfect balance of light and refreshing ingredients paired with rich, bold flavors! You can easily make this ahead of time for a busy week, or even whip these up next time you have friends & family over. These are filling, mouth watering and make quite an impression!
Why we ♡ it:
Gobble up the goodness: lean proteins are a Tone It Up staple, because they’re super filling and help keep you lean! They’re also filled with important amino acids that help your muscles and body repair from workouts! Perfect for that bikini ;)
Saved by the bell: An entire bell pepper is loaded with over 150% of your daily vitamin C requirements and up to 3 grams of fiber. Fiber works wonders for our bodies! According to our Tone It Up dietitian, studies have shown that high fiber intakes can aid in weight loss, cancer prevention, blood sugar stabilization, and healthy digestion. High fiber diets, like your Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, with plenty of veggies, whole grains, fruits, beans, nuts, & seeds are essential for a healthy lifestyle!
Get saucy: It’s nice to know soy sauce contains a slew of antioxidants — as well as a rich mixture of nutrients that stem from its fermentation process. We recommend using low sodium and organic varieties sparingly. If you’re gluten-free, look for Tamari ~ it’s the wheat-free version of this tasty condiment.
