Black Bean and Avocado Lettuce Wraps

I know I'm really into wraps these days, but this recipe was actually featured on The Slender Student last week for my Team Slender guest post!

The vibrant green lettuce is filled with protein, healthy fats and fresh produce to keep you satisfied until dinner.  I think you'll love it and find that it only takes minutes to put together.  Easy peasy.
