A Whole30 Favorite: Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

A Whole30 Favorite: Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

We’re in the Whole30 home stretch! When we started this thing 4 weeks ago, I imagined Day 31 to be a monstrous carb fest: a deep-fried french fry sandwich in a tortilla.

(Possibly battered and deep fried again.)

But here we are, 29 days later and I’m all like “Eh.” Don’t get me wrong, it’s going to be really nice to have a tortilla on fajita night. But what I really want:

Goat cheese. (I’ve already pulled it out of the freezer!)

In place of tortillas, we’ve been having “lettuce wrap” fajita nights. Or just grabbing a knife & fork and forgoing the wrapping vehicle entirely.
