Now, let’s talk about my “fruit of the day” choice. As you can see, I chose cucumbers & tomatoes! These 2 fruit combined are a match made in heaven! This is actually one of my favorite combos. It’s light, colorful, refreshing, & it is so good! I drizzled a little bit of EVOO, a dash of Italian dressing, & topped it with a hint of kosher salt & pepper! Did you know that cucumbers & tomatoes are actually considered fruit? Yes! And today I’m here to give you a brief rundown of each of these. Here’s a few health benefits of both.
Cucumbers- 1. Cucumbers keep you hydrated! 2. Cucumbers flushes out toxins 3. Aids in weight loss 4. Nourishes you with vitamins 5. Revives the eyes!
