Day 1 - Turkey Wrap

It's Day 1 of our quest to eat healthier.  We've cut the majority of processed foods out of our diet at home, now we are concentrating on the sugar.  Russ is very addicted to sugar and I am afraid this is going to be really hard for him - but this was actually his idea. He has gone 3 days not having a Coke though, he's doing well!  Our goals this month are to try and stay under 50g of sugar a day, to eat more simple meals, and to only have alcohol one night a week.  I am going to keep a running "diary" here of our dinners.  We think it'll be good to look back at the end of the month and see how we've done.  And who knows, some of you may find some meals you'd like to try as well!

Turkey Wrap with cucumbers and avocado dip

These are the star players in my wrap - Shredded lettuce, smoked turkey breast, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers olives and ranch dressing.  I bought the stuff to make homemade Caesar dressing for these wraps, but want to use up what we have open in the fridge first.

And the wraps themselves - we love these ones! 

I apologize for the picture of my half eaten food, I was hungry and forgot to take the picture before I started eating.To go with our wraps I sliced up a cucumber and paired it with a "dip" I threw together yesterday.  I pureed an avocado with some Greek yogurt and then added a can of drained Rotel - delicious!!
