Avocado, Mozzarella and Tomato Salad

2 Hass Avocados from Mexico, sliced

2 ripe tomatoes

1 pound mozzarella

1 ½ ounce bunch of fresh basil leaves

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation: With a small knife or “shark,” cut the little stem end out of the tomato using a serrated knife, cut the tomatoes into 1/3 inch slices. Slice the mozzarella 1/4 inch thick. Alternate slices of Avocado, tomato, mozzarella and basil leaves like playing cards on individual plates. Drizzle on the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

Whole-Grain French Toast

4 egg whites

1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

1 teaspoon maple syrup

4 slices any whole-grain bread

Strawberries

Preparation

In a shallow pan bug enough to hold four slices of bread, combine the egg whites, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Beat lightly with a fork or a wire whisk. Put the four slices of bread into the pan, then flip them over to coat both sides.

Spray a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Remove the bread from the pan, mopping up any leftover egg whites with the bread. Cook the slices in the preheated skillet for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Serve immediately, drizzle with a small amount of maple syrup and topped with your favorite fresh fruit. (If you don’t have fresh fruit, heat 1/2 cup frozen fruit and serve it warm. This is nice in the winter when fresh fruit isn’t an option.)
