Summer Cooling Salad

2017-06-16T21:39:41+00:00 June 16th, 2017|cucumber, Detox, Food & Drink, Friday Recipe, skin, spicy|

We are always looking for ways to include cucumber in our diet. This refreshing fruit boasts so many health benefits and is one of the foods on the zero calorie list too! Cucumbers provide a variety of nutrients, but one in particular called Silica, is particularly supportive of skin health. It helps the skin by improving hydration and elasticity and is a building block of collagen, which helps to reduce wrinkles. Cucumbers are hydrating,  help to quench thirst and act as a mild diuretic, which will help with bloat and flush out excess water weight.  They help remove harmful toxins from the body, promote optimal nutrient uptake and contain flavanoid antioxidants that prevent free radicals from building up, which can cause premature aging. Here’s a simple cucumber recipe that is also a perfect side dish to bring to a summer barbecue. Summer Cooling Salad Ingredients 1 cucumber 1 avocado ½ red onion Sesame Seeds* Cayenne Pepper Coco Aminos Method Cut cucumber, avocado and red onion into small bite size pieces. In a bowl mix the cut vegetables with sprinkles of sesame seeds and cayenne pepper to taste. Add 1-2 TB of Coco-Aminos to taste. Refrigerate mixture to a cool temperature for a refreshing salad!** *Optional: […]

Recipe Friday – Mexican Corn Salad

2017-05-26T21:23:42+00:00 May 26th, 2017|Corn, Cotija Cheese, Food & Drink, Friday Recipe|

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! We love Mexican style corn salad, but ever since we’ve been trying to decrease our dairy intake, this salad hasn’t been the same without the cotija cheese. So, when we found this recipe by www.rabbitandwolves.com, which has vegan cotija cheese, we were so excited to try it. The vegan cotija cheese gives the salad that slightly salty taste that really fills out this dish. We hope you try this salad. It’s a great vegan side dish to bring to a Memorial Day BBQ or a summer picnic. We used canned corn, but think that roasted corn would really bring out the flavors even more and plan to try that next time.

Delicious and sweet, figs season is officially underway, so could not resist making this dish. Often figs are found in desserts, due to their natural sweetness, but this dish is a nice blend of sweet and savory. It was easy to make, but this yummy dish looks like it takes longer to prepare than it does, [...]

Recipe Friday – Layered Salad in a Jar

2016-10-19T14:49:30+00:00 August 12th, 2016|Food & Drink, Well-Being|

Pretty, portable and delicious! What's not to love about a salad in a jar? If you haven't adopted the layered salad in a jar trend and you have a busy life that's always on the go, then I really recommend that you give in. These salads take so little prep time, they last for several days and are so helpful in [...]
