Since I planted my basil plant a couple of week ago this healthy caprese sandwich has been my go-to breakfast! Basil looks very elegant, it has a delicate smell and taste but it manages to add irreplaceable touch to any dish.
I used a whole wheat bread for this tomato weight loss sandwich. This one is store bought but I plan on sharing a recipe which I am currently experimenting with.
Also, toasting the bread for this caprese sandwich for weight loss is optional. I think that toasting the bread brings out more flavor and I like the texture more too.
Traditional caprese sandwich, not a healthy caprese sandwich :), calls for mozzarella. To make this a low-fat weight loss sandwich I used low-fat cottage cheese. And it tastes delicious! But any low-fat cheese will do.
I don’t think these is a low-fat mozzarella to make this cheese weight loss sandwich. But if there is let me know! That would be a dream!
To go along with this caprese sandwich I serves a simple cucumber salad. For weight loss that is a must. And if you want to know why check out my weight loss video.
