Peach Caprese Salad for the 17 Day Diet

Peach Caprese Salad - a perfect combination for your next lunch!

When I found this recipe online, I thought, “WOW! Peaches and cheese together?”

I think this is a perfect side salad for your summer weight loss with the 17 Day Diet.

What an interesting combination of flavors and a whole new spin on the classic Caprese Salad we’re more familiar with.

This recipe is perfect for a summer lunch for any cycle.

Peach Caprese Salad is a slight twist on the classic!

Can I Have Cheese on the 17 Day Diet?

Yes, cheese in moderation is approved for all cycles.

Technically, the cycle food lists list non-fat cheese under the condiment section, but I personally stay away from anything non-fat. 

When you strip the fat away, you take away the flavor. Most non-fat foods have added ingredients put back in to bring the flavor back.

Some of these ingredients are sodium, sugar and other artificial sweeteners and ingredients. A little bit of full or lower fat cheese is better!

Remember, mozzarella is naturally low fat, so it’s a perfect cheese to indulge in!

Peach Caprese Salad Ingredients

This recipe is simple! It’s basically a regular caprese salad (tomatoes, mozzarella and a few other ingredients) and peaches!

Peaches are a great low sugar fruit with lots of fiber for cycle 1

 

Peaches are a great low-sugar, high-fiber fruit that may be enjoyed on all cycles. Peaches are readily available for the summer months.

They are so juicy and full of flavor. They pair well with yummy mozzarella cheese!

While the recipe doesn’t call for it, add a bit more flavor and grill your peach slices!

Now you have your standard caprese salad ingredients – tomatoes, mozzarella and basil!

Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Basil are standard ingredients in caprese salad

 

Then you’ll finish it off with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar!

Olive Oil is one of the best sources of healthy fat for weight loss

What a wonderful salad for your next Summer dinner party! It’s so elegant, yet healthy!

I know your guests will love this!

  1. Thank You, Torey! I did the smoothie day yesterday and lost 2 lbs! I can’t wait to start the challenge today. Doing this with a group makes me feel more empowered to actually get to my goal.
    I do have a question. I’ve looked for the Breakstone LiveActive Cottage Cheese and can’t find it anywhere in our local stores, ( Joliet, Illinois ), any suggestions for a substitute?

    • Hi Mary Anne! Congrats on your smoothie day weight loss! As far the cottage cheese, if you can’t find this, just use one of the other items on the probiotic list.

  2. Hello Torrey! Quick question. I don’t eat any type of poultry or eggs. Is it okay to just do fish instead? What about an egg replacement for breakfast? Thank you!

    Reply
    • Hi Shughudu, it’s perfectly fine to eat fish. If you like yogurt, you can incorporate this into your breakfast routine with either fruit, or into a green smoothie.
