Detox Monday

Just because I’m not working right now, doesn’t mean I’m not insanely busy. I can’t believe how many loose ends I still need to tie up before the big move. Plus, going through my condo has turned into quite the project. I’m not a hoarder by any means, but I have managed to collect an unexplainable amount of crap. It has felt so good to purge unnecessary items that have been collecting dust in the back of my closest.

Since I have plenty to do, my temporary retirement has yet to be filled with glorified lunches out and pool days. For this reason, I’ve been making quick lunches at home so I can keep powering through. Today’s lunch was a recreation of the Southwest Turkey Wraps my mom used to make when I was younger. A simple mixture of taco sauce and light mayo makes a standard turkey sandwich, not so standard. I love that the sauce is slightly spicy, creating the perfect departure from the usual mustard.

Spread mayo/taco sauce mixture on whole wheat tortilla.

Top sauce with turkey and shredded cheese.

Next, sprinkle shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes on top of the cheese.

Roll tortilla into a tight wrap.

Lunch is served!
