We've talked calories and nutrients for the last few weeks, so I wanted to talk about the joy of my favorite food...a special food I call...tomato food.
Yes, I said, "tomato food".
Sunday we found a BOGO deal on Campari tomatoes at Publix and I have been enjoy the sweet, red simplicity all week.
Sunday night we grilled chicken and steak (for Kyle) and served it with a stellar tomato and red onion salad.
Simple Tomato Salad:
- Diced ripe tomatoes
- Sliced red onion
- Fresh garlic
- Red wine vinegar
- Tiny bit of EVOO
Kyle was extra lucky and got to enjoy the leftover salad with his lunch the next day. Lucky dog!
Fun & Feisty Zucchini Cups.
Greek dinner party with these on the menu.
Tuesday's lunch benefited from the lycopene goodness of tomatoes. I added leftover grilled chicken to quinoa, tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and 1 laughing cow cheese. I simply topped it with balsamic vinegar and dug in.

Since I'm gushing love for all things tomato today here are some other delicious tomato eats. Side note: I actually hate the "gooey" inside part of a raw tomato. I take great pains to remove it from all salads. OCD, much? I also love grape tomatoes as the seeds are much less repulsive to me.
Tomato Food Loves:
- Simple Summer Salad
- Easy Weeknight Chicken Parm
- Skinny Italian Lasagna
- Homemade Pizza
- Salsa city
- Caprese Spears from Tamara at FitKnitChick
What's your "favorite" food?
Love and mater,
Carissa & Kyle
