Tuscany Meatless Sandwiches
WebMD Weight Loss Clinic members: Journal as: 2 slices bread + 2 ounces of low-fat cheese + ½ cup vegetable with 1 teaspoon fat.

1 large slice sourdough or French bread, or a 7-inch-long baguette half
About 7 large fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon olive oil (flavored or extra-virgin)
3 large, thick slices of fresh mozzarella cheese (about 1.5 ounces)
1/2 large vine-ripened tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1. Cover the bread with fresh basil leaves. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon olive oil evenly over the basil. Top that with fresh mozzarella slices.
2. Broil sandwich, watching carefully, until cheese is melted and starting to lightly brown in spots (about 5 minutes in a toaster oven).
3. Lay tomato slices on top of the mozzarella, then drizzle 1/2 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar over all.

Yield: 1 open-face sandwich

Nutritional Information: Per open-face sandwich: 314 calories, 18 g protein, 35 g carbohydrate, 11.5 g fat (5.3 g saturated fat, 4.4 g monounsaturated fat, 1 g polyunsaturated fat), 23 mg cholesterol, 3 g fiber, 560 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 33%.

Dinner: Now for something completely different from tomorrow's meal and easy to fix -- how about chili and cornbread? You can make the chili anytime during the morning (even the day before). Then just add it to the slow cooker and keep it warm until you're ready to serve. Beef & Beer Chili is a mild slow-cooker favorite -- add extra chili powder, cayenne pepper, or jalapeno if you want a hotter chili.
