With the common household regularly consuming excessive amounts of extra carbohydrates, this is the perfect alternative for a family favourite!
This change can also transfer into many different meals like burgers, burritos, San Choy bow, and many others, that would normally use bread as a base, you can now use lettuce cups, or some cos lettuce leaves.
