Sayonara, Muffin-Top!

Swimsuit season is comin', ladies. And, if you're like me, you need all the help you can get in the muffin-top area. So, here's my new fave low-carb recipe. It's dee-licious. (Tomato lovers, you have officially hit the jackpot.)

I got this from Muscle & Fitness HERS magazine. It's a great workout magazine if you're more advanced than SELF or Shape. (I'm not doing arm curls with soup cans.)

8 roma tomoatores
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
Kosher salt (I love Kosher salt. LOVE it.)
Black pepper
2 oz. fresh goat cheese (I don't include this.)
Serves 4

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Slice tomatoes in half length-wise. In a large bowl, toss with olive oil, fennel, and salt and pepper to taste.

Place tomatoes on a cookie sheet cut side down and roast for two hours. Turn over half-way thru cooking.

Place on a serving dish and crumble goat cheese on top. Serve warm.
