Looking for a healthy snack to nibble on in between meals? These cucumber bites satisfy the crunch factor (nice crisp veggie), a little heat (salsa) and some good ol’ protein (for the meat eaters version).
1/2 Large English Cucumber
FRESH Salsa (see note)
Grilled chicken (vegetarians can omit this)
Slice the cucumber into rounds. Top with a dollop of fresh salsa and add a piece of grilled chicken on top.
Note: ALWAYS buy fresh salsa at your grocery stores (typically in the deli section and not in the center isle with the tortilla chips). Rule of thumb – aim to eat only things that have a shelf life of less than a week. This helps weed out processed foods and helps to incorporate more fresh foods into your diet. The ingredients should all be things you recognize and further more are able to pronounce. If you cant, then steer clear!
