Albacore Tuna Lettuce Wraps

We love to eat at CrossFit Jacked and eat well we do.  The most important thing you can do for your body is to fill it with the right foods instead of the processed garbage that’s so easy to find.

Each week we’ll be throwing out some recipes on our blog that will hopefully inspire you to eat healthy and eat well.  You can come in the gym every day and bust your rump but until you quit indulging in garbage you’re never going to see results.
