Beef ‘Wraps’

Most of you will know I follow a low carb, paleolithic diet. This doesn’t mean you can’t have some awesome food! I get creative with my meals, I try things differently if the recipe doesn’t suit me and learn from trial and error. I found some wrap recipes using lettuce as the wrap and to be honest they never interested me, but one night I decided to give them a go. OMG! These things are totally amazeballs and they fill you up!! Each wrap has protein, healthy fats and a good serve of vegetables-what more could you ask for? So without further adieu…..


2 Pieces Iceberg Lettuce

Small Piece Red Capsicum-chopped

Small Piece Green Capsicum-chopped

½ Tomato-chopped

1 Spring Onion-chopped

250g Beef Mince (This will make two serves and you can use turkey or chicken mince if desired)

1 Cup Basil-roughly chopped

Garlic Powder

½ Avocado-chopped


  1. Cook the mince in a frypan, add garlic powder to your own tastes
  2. When the mince is almost done, add the basil leaves to the pan
  3. Remove once leaves wilted and mince cooked
  4. Use the same pan to cook capsicum, tomato and spring onion
  5. Rinse lettuce leaves, shake excess water and place on plate
  6. Split mince portion in half, keep one half aside for another meal. Divide second half evenly over each lettuce leaf
  7. Divide avocado over two portions
  8. Divide mixed vegetables over each portion
  9. Wrap up and enjoy!

Warning: These are messy to eat, just get in there and enjoy them!

Note-I used steak in this picture, I’ve found I like mince better, I just always forget to take a picture.

Stop drooling, go make them.
