Tomato, Avocado and Mozzarella Salad May 16 2014, 0 Comments

I love a good salad, especially when it's so fresh and full of flavor. It's easy to get stuck in the typical diet routine---boring salads, grilled chicken and some kind of diet dressing. There is no way that tastes good so what ends up happening is 30 minutes later, the hunger and cravings kick in and I am reaching for the sugary and salty snacks. If you're trying to lose weight or just trying to eat better, your food has to have flavor and should also have some healthy fats to help full you up. Avoid the boring unhealthy diet salads and try this one instead! 1 serving equals 1/2 cup: 147 calories, 12 grams fat, 4.5 grams carbohydrates, 2 grams fiber, 5.8 grams protein **Makes approximately 8 servings Ingredients:
