Tweet: Pico de Gallo can be a lifesaver when #dieting!
Itâ€™s a low calorie and healthy topping for salads and more. When I was doing fitness competitions as I got closer to show my food choices became very
limited. I needed something to zest up my foods so I wasn’t SO BORED!Â Â needed a way to add flavor without adding calories. Then it came to meâ€¦. Pico de Gallo! Itâ€™s fresh, full of veggies and it tastes great! I top my salad with some grilled chicken and Pico de Gallo and BOOM healthy lunch. I can use it on my eggs or other lean proteins.
