It’s Monday, so you know what that means; right? Meatless Mondays at my house!
Typically, I try and get creative with my dinners to not include meat but by replacing meat with various seafood or veggies.
I love tacos; however, my fiancé is obsessed with tacos. He could eat them every day. Recently, I started creating lettuce wraps, which is a great alternative from a taco shell.
Cilantro and lime are a few of our favorite ingredients. I recently started using Bibb lettuce as the ‘taco shells’. Bibb lettuce is the best to use because it’s large enough to hold toppings. It’s also a lettuce that’s very flavorful, yet, low in calories. Shrimp is so easy to prepare and it’s healthy, which helps keep this meal very low-carb. You will love the spice and tangy flavors that this meal exudes. I promise you that you and your family will love this amazing meal!
