TLT Lettuce Wraps
Replace the bacon in your BLT with lean tuna and you’ve got a CE-approved snack. We’ve also swapped out the bread for Boston lettuce for a sushi-inspired mini –meal – with each wrap packing a mere 52 calories.

The thick creaminess of nonfat Greek yogurt is a perfect substitute for both low-fat sour cream and regular yogurt when making dips and sauces. Most of the milk whey is removed during Greek yogurt’s triple-straining process, which results in a thick consistency and full-fat taste. It’s also high in protein – about 20 g per cup, roughly double that of regular yogurt.
Recipe Source: Clean Eating
6 oz sushi-grade tuna
1 tsp to 1 1/2 tbsp Sriracha hot chili sauce, depending on your heat preference
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek-style yogurt
2 roma tomatoes, diced
8 small Boston lettuce leaves or hearts of romaine
Sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Olive oil cooking spray
Season tuna with slat and pepper. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high. Mist tuna on all sides with cooking spray. Sear tuna for 30 seconds per side. Remove from skillet and set aside until cooled to room temperature. Slice tuna into 8 pieces and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together Sriracha sauce and yogurt until combined; set aside.
To assemble, place 2 tbsp tomatoes into each lettuce leaf. Top with 1 tsp Sriracha yogurt and 1 slide tuna. Roll lettuce gently to enclose ingredients, using a toothpick to secure, if desired. Repeat assembly with remaining ingredients, place wraps onto a serving platter and enjoy immediately.
