Teriyaki Chick’n Strip Lettuce Wraps are a delicious way to enjoy a vegan lunch or dinner. Yep you heard me right, vegan, these Teriyaki Chick’n strips are actually not chicken but sustainable plant protein that provides the taste, texture and nutrition of meat but with less fat, fewer calories and no cholesterol! “BAM”
I don’t know about you but I struggle with what to eat for lunch. I tend to eat the leftovers from the night before because it is easy and available, I will occasionally pick up a salad if I am out running errands, but past those options, not much is inspiring. Well, these little ol’ lettuce wraps hit the spot. GardeinTM (garden + protein = gardein), so clever, has these delicious and sustainable plant protein packages that provides the taste, texture and nutrition of meat but with less fat, less calories and no cholesterol. It is a great source of protein that is vegan so it gives your body a nice break from processing animal proteins without sacrificing taste.
They offer several different varieties in the vegetarian freezer section at most grocery stores. My Teriyaki Chick’n strips were quick and easy to prepare and adding the cucumbers, lettuce and scallions a ton of healthy greens. A complete meal with little time, fuss or mess.
