We are having warm and beautiful days in Toronto and of course I’m enjoying every minute of this nice weather. My mom is in town and we’ve been walking a lot around the city. I’m glad the weather is good because last time she visited it was February and she didn’t like the cold weather.

Today, we walked by the lake Ontario and visited the Toronto Music Garden. What a gorgeous park, full of flowers everywhere. It was a lovely afternoon! I got home feeling much better and happy for living in a city with lots of green space and nature.

And of course when the weather is good you want to eat fresh and colorful meals, don’t you think? At least I’m like that. For lunch I love eating a big bowl of salad with some protein just like this Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad recipe.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s packed with protein from the shrimp and eggs. You’ll feel very satisfied and energized to enjoy your afternoon. It’s also gluten-free, low-carb and if you don’t add feta cheese it’s a paleo-friendly recipe too. This Shrimp Avocado Tomato Salad recipe is also so quick to prepare because shrimp cooks very fast and while you’re chopping the veggies your eggs are being boiled.

The dressing is also very light, but flavourful. The combination of olive oil, lemon and Dijon mustard goes really well with shrimp and eggs. It’s also great to make ahead of time and leave in the fridge for up 7 days. This salad is really good for lunch or even for a light summer dinner. You can even grill some veggies to complement your meal. Enjoy!
