Julie and I partnered with Mighty Spark Food Co., and recipe developer extraordinaire Patty Mastracco, to create a perfect Paleo recipe that will excite your taste buds and wow your friends and family by showing them that healthy can taste good. Using Mighty Spark’s Sweet Thai-Style Premium Ground Chicken, already pre-seasoned with ginger, Kaffir, lime, cilantro, curry, soy sauce and Thai chili peppers, we created a quick and easy lettuce wrap recipe. Even if you’re not a Paleo follower, you’ll love this dish that can quickly be made in under 30 minutes for a convenient weeknight meal or perfect for entertaining this patio season.
What’s more, you can feel good about choosing Mighty Spark. Not only do they make top-quality meat products, they’re committed to giving back. Mighty Spark’s one-for-one giveback program is their Bite Back Hunger program. For every Mighty Spark purchase, the company donates a meal to those in need. Mighty Spark partners with non-profits Kids Against Hunger and Children Hunger Fund for their meal donations, and they expect to donate more than 2 million meals to children in need in 2018.
