Lettuce wraps are a great idea when you want to cut back on carbs. You can make lettuce wraps with an incredible variety of fillings.
Since lettuce is very low in calories, lettuce wraps can work for so many different types of diets, depending on the rest of the ingredients. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, clean eating….you name it!
I’m sharing some awesome lettuce wrap ideas today, and trust me…there’s something in there for everyone.

What lettuce is best for wraps?
There are four varieties of lettuce that I recommend to use when making lettuce wraps:
- Butter Lettuce
- Green Leaf Lettuce
- Romaine Lettuce
- Little Gem Lettuce
You want to use a lettuce that has large and flexible leaves with a flavour that won’t over-power the filling!
