Creamy Cucumber Olive Salad

Would you rather your skin look like a luscious, juicy cucumber, or a withering piece of prosciutto, ie dry-cured ham? Hmm…I thought so! We are what we eat, and we can take on the properties of fresh, wholesome foods that we choose to ingest.

So, let’s talk about cucumbers! Cucumbers are a wonderful, mineral-rich and hydrating beauty food. My Creamy Cucumber Olive Salad Recipe is super-easy, super-tasty, and super-nourishing so you can rotate it in your arsenal.

I want to arm you always with a wide variety of EASY recipes so you actually make them! Easy and simple is how I eat, and how I encourage you to also, so you get the best results, long-term.

Beauty Gourd: Cucumbers

As I mention above, If you’re looking to hydrate– besides drinking good ole water- cucumbers are wonderfully hydrating, and full of beauty minerals.

The phytochemicals in cucumber cause the collagen in the skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer, and reducing the visibility of cellulite—rub a few cucumber slices on pesky cellulite right before going to the pool or beach, and/or, rub it on wrinkles before a photo op or evening out!!!

Cucumbers are are high in all the B vitamins (except for B12), Vitamin C, zinc, iron, folic acid, calcium, magnesium and potassium. They will give you energy while helping to repair and smooth the collagen in your skin.

Cucumbers are a valuable source of conventional antioxidant nutrients, which include vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese. Cucumbers also contain flavonoid antioxidants, such as quercetin, apigenin, luteolin, and kaempferol—all of which contribute to their antioxidant and anti-Inflammatory benefits.

Try to purchase organic cukes which will allow you to leave on their beautiful skin and eat them as they are—which will provide you with even more beauty minerals.

Because they are high in water, I love using them in everything from salads to smoothies which will fill you up with fiber and water throughout your day.

Want to give your body an extra boost?! Give this little bundle of love a try!

Beauty Fruit: Kalamata Olives

I absolutely love the nutty flavor that olives contain. They add a pop of pungent flavor to any recipe, and are full of minerals and beauty fat.

I like using whole fats best, like olives, seeds, nuts and avocados, over tons of oil, so that we are ingesting the whole food, along with all its glorious fiber and in its unrefined form.

For certain recipes, a small amount of oil is allowable but best to used unrefined oils that are raw and cold-pressed, such as; coconut oil, Udo’s oils, sesame oil and olive oil.

Olives provide almost three-quarters of their fat as oleic acid—a monounsaturated fatty acid. They also provide a small amount of the essential fatty acid called linoleic acid, and a small amount of alpha-linolenic acid—an omega-3 fatty acid.

Kalamata olives contain calcium (keeps bones strong and encouraging a restful nights sleep), fiber (keeping your regular), iron (oxygenating your blood and stimulating circulation for beautiful glowing skin), and vitamin A (supporting eye and skin health).

When purchasing olives, try to go for the best of the best, which means, purchasing certified organic. This will ensure that you are eliminating exposure to contaminants like pesticides and heavy metals- beauty no-no’s!

Please avoid  purchasing olives in a can if at all possible :(.  Glass jars of olives can be stored directly in the refrigerator for the same period of time.

Olives really are a good nutrient source and a little goes a long way, so a few go a long way in this recipe!
