"Tomatoes are low in calories and a good source of fiber -- known to lower bad cholesterol and increase heart health," says Brennecke. With the added protein from the mozzarella, this is a healthy, filling option. 

1 medium red tomato 
1 medium yellow tomato 
4 ounces fresh mozzarella 
1 cup chopped fresh basil 
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 
1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1. Slice each tomato into 4 equal slices. 
2. Cut the mozzarella into 8 thin slices, each weighing 1/2 ounce. 
3. Combine the basil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and toss together. 
4. To build a napoleon, place 1 red tomato slice on a plate and top with 1 mozzarella slice. Place a yellow tomato slice on the mozzarella and top the tomato with another slice of mozzarella. 
5. Top each napoleon with 1/4 cup basil-vinegar mixture.
