‘Inflammation’ is a trendy buzz word in the nutrition world.

Plus, grab the recipe for this inflammation-fighting lettuce wrap!
Inflammation Fighting Lettuce Wrap
- 1 piece of collard green
- 1 carrot sliced into matchsticks
- 1/4 cup purple cabbage thinly sliced
- 3 pieces of roasted red pepper
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon honey mustard dressing
Cut the thick part out of the collard green stem (it should fold easily). Lay the collard green flat on a cutting board.
Layer the thinly sliced carrots and cabbage along the stem of the collard green. Top with roasted red peppers, avocado, pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of honey mustard.
Wrap it up like a burrito and enjoy!
