When you think of an avocado, bacon and ranch sandwich, you probably don't think of it as health food. But hey, don't let that preconceived idea sway you away from this tasty sandwich.
The trick to making this sandwich healthy-ish is all about replacing your typical store bought ranch with our homemade guilt-free version. To do this, swap out mayo for flavorful and tart Greek yogurt. Instead of saturated fats, your dressing will be packed full of live cultures and probiotics that help with digestion and boost immunity.
And you may also be saying why not swap out real bacon for turkey bacon or some other substitute? According to Prevention.com, pork bacon reigns king over turkey bacon for health benefits. Not only is it higher in healthy fats but it's also got more free radical fighting selenium, cholesterol lowering niacin, and fertility boosting folate.
The whole grain wrap is also vital is making this sandwich not so bad for you!
