Tomato stacks are both flavorful and low in calories. Enjoy them as a snack on the 10-Day Belly Slimdown, or make a complete meal with the extra rotisserie chicken from the bone broth on the plan. 


Recipe from The 10-Day Belly Slimdown by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci


  • 1 large ripe beefsteak tomato, or 2 medium tomatoes, at room temperature
  • Celtic or pink Himalayan salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves, julienne
  • 1 tbsp good-quality olive oil
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar, or more to taste
  • crushed red pepper (optional)


1. Slice the tomato horizontally into 1/4-inch thick slices. Season with salt and black pepper.


2. Stack the tomato slices, putting basil between each layer. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add a dash of crush red pepper, if desired. Eat by itself or with rotisserie chicken for protein.
