Tomato Salad

My Tomato Salad

Hello, my name is Vicky, and I’m a snacker.

So, as you can imagine, trying to lose weight and snacking poses a bit of a problem. I’ve been finding ways to make yummy snacks for myself that are healthful and yummy at the same time.

One thing I’ve been doing that works well is a really simple tomato salad. I just cut up about a cup of tomatoes, squeeze lemon juice of half a lemon over it, sprinkle about half a teaspoon of salt on the tomatoes, and a teaspoon of good olive oil to the mixture and toss it all together! Makes a super yummy snack, in my opinion.

And really, any veggies can be added to this if you’re not as in love with tomatoes as I am. I think some cubed cucumber would be good here, some thinly sliced onion would be a good flavor booster… there’s lots of options.

So, let me know if you try it and what variations you come up with!

So yesterday we went to my in-laws house for dinner. They’re very familiar with Weight Watchers and know that we’re on it now too, so I was confident that we’d be having a very health-conscious meal. Boy, was I impressed with this one from Cooking Light! I think I’ll be looking up more recipes from them now.

As you can tell by the title, we had Roast Chicken salad… ¬†yes… with Goat Cheese! I was so excited about that one!

The meal was great. My husband used Ranch Dressing instead of the salad dressing in the recipe because of his acid reflux. So that worked out well. We were all pretty full from it, but had room for some fruit for dessert. I thought this was a great move, and might try to do this more at home, because it helped satisfy our little bit of hunger we may have had left. I believe we were all left very happy at the end of this meal.

Also, must say, I love myself a no-cook meal. Especially in the summer. I’m going to be making this one myself sometime soon for sure!

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!
