Tex-Mex Salad for Lunch!

Daily Tidbit:  Last night I was reading in Women's Health Mag about the benefits of eating Peaches.  A study at Texas A&M showed that compounds in the fruit may stop the growth of breast cancer cells!  I felt inspired and changed up my Oatmeal a little this morning!

To read more about the study and these amazing findings, check this out:

Oatmeal with Fresh Peaches for Breakfast!

Breakfast:  Oatmeal with Fresh Peaches
1/2 cup plain Oatmeal (this is a pre-cook measurement)
microwaved in Fat Free Milk
2 tbsp Walnuts
2 shakes of Plain Cinnamon
1/2 fresh Peach, cubed
5 oz. OJ
Regular Coffee, black

Lunch:  Tex-Mex Salad
1/2 cup of Black Bean Dip, Recipe:  
1/2 cup of Homemade Salsa, Recipe:  
1/2 cup of raw Zucchini, diced
1/2 cup Carrots, shredded
1/2 cup of Corn
Scallions, a handful
8 small fresh Mozzarella balls, halved  (this was more than I needed!)
Water with Lime

Tip: At the beginning of every week I throw a bunch of baby Carrots into the food processor until its in tiny bits, that way it becomes ready to eat and  easy to throw into almost any dish (Tomato Sauce, Salads, Wraps/ Sandwiches, Dips, a Stir-Fry etc) without having to do any additional chopping or prep!

This is the Black Bean Dip Base for the Salad!

Mixed other ingredients in a bowl and placed on Beans!

Snack:  Plain Hard Boiled-Egg, Water

Snack:  1/4 cup dry roasted, lightly salted Peanuts, Fat Free Milk

Using a Toaster Oven Pan keeps portions in check!

The Beans, Avocado & Tomato Salsa adds Fiber & Nutrients!

Dinner: Scallion Mozz Nachos
Hubs was out, so I ate late - could not resist having my fav fast & yummy meal!
