A healthier YOU starts with YOU. We cant expect to change the way we look and feel if we aren’t willing to make changes. A great way to heal your body and get into the best, strongest health of your life is to start a healthier diet. The word D.I.E.T. is usually associated with the idea of deprivation and eliminating food groups. That is not what diet means. We all have a diet, it is the way we eat. You can either have a healthy, clean diet or you could have a very unhealthy diet.
Adopting a healthy, clean diet is so important. Did you know that the food we eat can heal your body? It is true. The foods we eat can be healing. I am not saying that there is no need for doctors nor am I saying that all illnesses can be treated simply by adapting a healthier lifestyle. BUT, we can heal and cure a lot just by what we put in our bodies. We need to start adapting a diet that fuels your body and not punish it.
Ok ok, so that is my soapbox rant for the moment. I started this blog post to share with you a side dish I made for lunch today. Side dishes are sometimes my weakness. It isn’t very hard for me to come up with a clean, healthy, lean protein for a meal but then I usually just get stumped with side dishes. My go to in the past was quick things in a box like rice a roni or past dish etc. Now I am learning a new way to eat.
So for today’s lunch I was going to have a veggie burger for my protein but what oh what do we want on the side?? Hmmmm….. This is the point where I start staring into the abyss I call a refrigerator. I noticed I had a cucumber and a roma tomato. Thus a Cucumber Salad was born.
This recipe is so simple and quick you will wonder why you were not making this all along.
(2 servings – each serving equals one green on 21 Day Fix)
1 Fresh Cucumber (sliced)
1 Fresh Roma Tomato (sliced)
1 TBSP Rice Wine Vinegar (make sure you check the bottle and use one with no added sugar. Its hard to find but there is one)
1 Tsp Olive Oil
1/2 Tsp Dill Salt and Pepper to taste
I simply sliced the veggies and placed in bowl. I then added the other ingredients on top, placed lid on bowl, shake shake shake and TADAAAAAAA, Cucumber Salad. So crispy and refreshing. ENJOY!!
