Keto, Paleo and Whole30 Crab Lettuce Wraps

We’ve all seen lettuce wraps dotting menus of casual restaurants and filling our social media feeds with tempting imagery. If you haven’t made them for yourself, let me be the first to convince you that lettuce wraps are easy to make, quick to assemble and if made with the right ingredients, healthy.

This Keto, Paleo and Whole30 Crab Lettuce Wrap Recipe is designed to fit into any and all of your diet needs. Whether you’re keeping Paleo, Keto or Whole30 and being that buns are off limits a combination of lettuce or cabbage fits the bill while adding a nice crunch.

Pro Tip: If packing for a brown bag lunch, keep the components separate so that everything will stay crisp and not get soggy.
