I have always been a huge fan of lettuce and cabbage wraps but was surprised to learn that many restauraurant versions are packed with unneccessary sugar.  Luckily it isn't too hard to create your own at home and avoid all that added sugar.  This version start with ground beef and then uses typical Thai flavors like lime juice and fish sauce.  Although fish sauce may be a new ingredient for many, it adds incredible flavor to food despite it's horrible smell so I recommned giving it a try.  If not, soy sauce will work just fine.  Cilantro and cashews bring everything together but you could definitely add even more freshness with carrots, bean sprouts, or scallions.
