Fabulous BLT Salad

By Sinea Pies

I'm losing weight---FINALLY!!!  Took me a while to catch on but with the help of my sister (in-law) who has lost over 50 pounds, and my brother who has visibly lost weight, as well, I realized that I had to go low-carb.  

Sue is following the Medifast program very, very successfully  She looks gorgeous. Seth is doing a version of Atkins and sometimes Carbohydrate Addicts diet for the occasional night out.  I decided to do a true Atkins induction phase to start with. Four pounds off and loving it.  The Atkins bars and shakes are helping me with my "thing for sweets". It makes it very palatable (pardon the pun).

Today I was running low on choices in the frig so I fried up some bacon (in the oven) and made this great, low-carb, totally satisfying salad for lunch.

Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Salad
Iceberg Lettuce, chopped
Tomato, cut into small wedges 
Swiss cheese, cut into squares
Bacon, cooked
Mayonnaise, 1-2 T

Cut up lettuce in bite-size pieces
Slice tomato into wedges
Break the cooked bacon into pieces that can be handled on a fork.
Cut Swiss cheese into squares.
Arrange the tomato, bacon and cheese on top of the lettuce.
Dollop mayo on top.

The carbohydrates are in the tomato. 
1/2 medium tomato is approximately 3-4 carbs.
