  • Ceviche made with shrimp and tilapia (vitamin c, iodine, protein, lycopene,) on a tostada made from a 100-calorie whole-grain tortilla lightly sprayed with olive oil and baked to a golden crisp.
    lean chicken in homemade mole sauce (dark chocolate has antioxidants, cinnamon regulates insulin production, chiles have vitamin C)
    red quinoa and black bean salad (essential amino acids, complex carbs, low-fat proteins, low GI), served warm in place of rice
    spinach salad with red onion, strawberries and feta cheese (vitamin C, iodine, calcium)

    And for dessert, a tropical fruit salad of mango, papaya, and pineapple, *LIGHTLY* drizzled with honey and accompanied with fresh mint.
