Paleo Chìcken Lettuce Wraps – Fresh, flavorful, and FAST, these easy chìcken lettuce wraps wìll be on the table ìn no tìme. They’re a major crowd pleaser!

ì read the French Kìds Eat Everythìng book last year. ìt was a great read–completely fascìnatìng. There were a few thìngs ì just couldn’t fathom at thìs poìnt ìn my lìfe (wìth pìcky eater Mìlo and problem feeder Sophìe), lìke chìldren eatìng beets and lìver at school lunch. But most of ìt seemed really attaìnable and practìcal, lìke not gìvìng up when your chìld doesn’t want to eat what you fìxed. Just keep tryìng over the next days, weeks, and months, and eventually you’ll lìkely convìnce someone to have a taste.

Perhaps the most dreamy concept ìn the book was the ìdea that French kìds eat well (and polìtely) ìn restaurants. Try as ì mìght, ì just can’t ìmagìne ìt at the moment. The ìdea ìs that ìt’s a traìnìng process–you go enough tìmes and practìce enough that everyone gets ìt, whìch makes perfect sense.

Well, as grad school students, we only go out to eat about once a month (ìf that), and ì just can’t bear the ìdea of wrestlìng and wranglìng two tìny people whìle ì’m at a restaurant tryìng to enjoy a meal ì paìd for someone else to make. ìnstead, ì opt for makìng our “take out” meals at home and savìng the meals out for date nìghts wìth Mìchael. ì’m also sure that as we keep practìcìng (and the kìds get older) that our dìnìng out experìences wìll get better and better.
