It's like I blinked and it's October. The season is changing; the days are getting shorter and cooler. For many this becomes a season where you loose focus. Those dreary cool days can stun motivation. The abundance of celebrations centered around food make it hard to balance committed eating while allowing the occasional treat.
For me these natural transitions are a great time for me to sit down and refocus on my goals. This season is especially important to make my goals realistic. Realistic in the facts that I'm going to eat some of my kids Halloween candy; I'm going to put to much whip cream on my pie and spend many December evenings having meals that consist of snacks and desserts.
Here is a quick and easy classic recipe you can feel good about this season. Perfect on a cold day. Enjoy.

1/2 medium onion chopped
5 medium tomatoes chopped
