Turkey Roll-Ups

My quest for alternatives to salads for lunch continues with this invention: Turkey Roll-Ups.  Check out Sick-of-Salads-for-Lunch Part 1 and Part 2.  I started with thinly sliced turkey from the deli counter at Whole Foods, mixed lettuce and avocado.  To make the Roll-Ups, lay out a piece of turkey (or 2 if they're really thin), spread a small spoonful of avocado at one end of the turkey and sprinkle with a little salt.  Grab a small handful of lettuce and place it on top of the avocado.  While tucking the lettuce in, roll up the turkey.  Place it on a plate "seam" side down to hold it in place.  Serve the Roll-Ups with raw carrots, green beans or other raw veggies.  Choose a number of Roll-Ups that makes sense for your Phase of the DGDE diet.  Generally, in the initial phase of the diet, the protein should roughly equal the size of your palm and thereafter should be only 1/2 or 1/3 the size of your palm.  See Page 99 and 132.
