Easy and Versatile

I try to make create easy recipes based on things we usually keep on hand. I love this one because it’s so versatile too! You can eat it by itself, as a side dish, or on top of a bed of lettuce! The dressing is yummy on all salads and also can be used as a marinade. Sometimes I’ll add or supplement some sliced onion or garbanzo beans, but here is what I used in todays version:

Tractor SupplyIngredients for Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil (I like extra virgin)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice or 1 drop of Lemon Vitality Essential Oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped

Combine all ingredients!

Ingredients for Cucumber Salad

  • 1 cucumber chopped in 4ths (or more depending on how much you want to make)
  • grape or cherry tomatoes cut in halves
  • 1 can of black beans (we like organic)

Combine all ingredients with dressing! And that’s it!

Health and Wellness

I’ve been on a health and wellness journey for about a year and a half now. It’s never been about the number on the scale, but I have lost over 40 lbs, largely through diet alone. I just wanted to feel better! And I do!

Lately, I’ve been tweaking my diet a bit and leaning more towards plant based. I don’t know that I’ll ever go completely vegetarian, but I will say that after a month of cutting way back on animal protein I feel really good! So I’m curious to see how I feel I’ll feel in another month!  I’ll let ya know!
