Happy 4th to all of you up in the US. Today seems like a good day to share a fresh a summery recipe. This recipe also happens to be a skinny recipe low on carbs and calories so you don’t have to worry about fitting into your bathing suits.
I recently posted a picture of a burned pair of jeans and my little brother saw it while I was working on my post. He still can’t figure out why I would put a picture of burned pants on my food blog. Some people might find it surprising to know that most of my siblings don’t read my blog or any blogs for that matter. My 11-year-old brother doesn’t realize how much life can be tied in with food. I mean, those of us who spend hours in the kitchen everyday still have lives too. Most of the events in everday life revolve around meals and eating together.
This got me thinking about how I really don’t add as much about everday life as I would like. I live in such a beautiful area and I should at least share more pictures of it. There is so much more to food blogging than food.
Honestly, I think I have started to take the beauty of this area for granted. This picture is on the beach in the backyard. Not many people get to see views like this whenever they want. It is true that for a family of gringos there are a lot of challenges to living here but you have to admit that it is breathtaking.
I have never actually been to the Mediterranean but, like everyone else, I have seen many pictures of it. I must say that there are days that my area reminds me of those pictures which brings me back to the recipe.
These tomatoes are hollowed out, stuffed with this delicious fresh chicken and “couscous” salad, then baked. The couscous part is actually rices cauliflower and it makes this a very light meal. According to my calculations these are around 200 calories for each mega stuffed tomato.
These would make a perfect lunch entree or they could even be served as an appetizer or side.
