From TODAY diet and nutrition editor Joy Bauer When I was planning the recipe lineup for my new cookbook “Slim & Scrumptious,” I knew I had to include my own, slimmed-down version of Asian chicken lettuce wraps. They’re one of my kids’ absolute favorite items to order off of restaurant menus — but the nutrition facts leave a lot to be desired.
