Like it or not, Here we are. The Holiday Season has arrived. Seems to come earlier and earlier each year, or are we simply imagining it?!? Well, no time like the present to prepare to look (and feel) our best. One easy way to do this, is to incorporate more cucumbers into your routine. If you haven’t yet been convinced of their powerhouse benefits, check out this interesting article by Dr. Mercola. We hear you, some of you don’t like the flavor or texture of cucumbers. So, how about a refreshing drink instead?
Lime, Cucumber Water
20 oz fresh, filtered water – can use seltzer, if preferred
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 lime, sliced
Mint for garnish (optional)
Add cucumber and lime slices to water. Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy throughout the day!
If that doesn’t rock your world, how about adding (hiding!) some cucumber in your smoothie? With all the other yummy ingredients, you won’t even notice the cucumber. Just sip and enjoys the benefits.
Cucumber Detox Smoothie
1/2 cup sliced cucumber, preferably organic
1 cup frozen pineapple
1 banana, peeled
1 lime, juice and zest
handful of greens (spinach, kale)
1/2 cup water, (or coconut water, or almond milk)
2 ice cubes
frozen wild blueberries, optional
Place in blender. Enjoy immediately.
Now let’s get to the good stuff, and get Party Ready!
