Tomatoes make low-cal tasty

When you need to make a meatless, quick, low-calorie meal, tomatoes can be the ingredient that really makes it tasty and something you want to eat!  Consider this simple meal:
1 Thin bun - 100 calories
1 Medium tomato – 22 calories
1 Teaspoon Dijon mustard – 4 calories
1 Boca burger - 140 calories
1 Large sprig of fresh basil – 1 calorie
1 Ear of corn on the cob with butter – 155 calories
Total calories for the meal: 422

And if you like dill pickles, adding a whole one only bumps it up 12 calories.  And you can always make fresh, raw pickles if you have some cucumbers.
