Meals to Break Your Sugar Habit


Egg salad sandwich
In a small bowl, combine 1 large egg (boiled and chopped), 2 tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tbsp diced celery, 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard (optional), and salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture on one slice of whole-wheat bread and top with 2 lettuce leaves; add second slice of bread.

Turkey Burger with Corn Salsa
