Caprese Sandwich Snack- 80 calories

024

This beats the pants off  of any 100 calorie snack pack out there! Basil has anti-inflammatory properties and is also a natural antibiotic, the cheese has calcium for strong bones and the tomatoes have shown to prevent certain types of cancer and prevent wrinkles! So this not only fills you up, but it keeps you healthy and beautiful.

This dish is delicious, light and addictive! Now that tomatoes are in season we have to take advantage, when tomatoes are out of season they are expensive, but more importantly not full flavor so fill up this summer and enjoy.

Makes one snack-

  • 2 slices Tomato-use what you have I had Beefsteak
  • 1 thin slice of Buffalo Mozzarella
  • Handful Basil- as much or little as you like basil is zero calories
  • 1/4 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Place 1 tomato slice on a plate, top with mozzarella then basil and finally the other tomato slice. Drizzle over oil and vinegar and add salt and pepper to taste. Done. Now I know I called it a sandwich, but you will want to use a fork and knife for this one. Dig in!
