Organic Radish & Cucumber Salad with Mixed Greens
Organic Radish & Cucumber Salad with Mixed Greens. Summer isn’t over yet…This weekend has seriously been beautiful! I remember for a long time every Labor Day Weekend it would just rain. My shore plans would be ruined and going out drinking with my friends would lead to staying inside the house playing cards and watching what use to be good re runs of the VMA’s. Ahhh the life of a twenty something year old right!? Those days are long gone and so is that once good entertainment. Womp Womp
Now, in the currant decade of my thirties I venture to other things in my leisure time to have fun. Like food shop, blog, eat, take photos of what I eat and write about it. All while drinking an organic ginger ale. Well that’s just for today at least.In my defense with the soda, last week I was severely ill with food poisoning (Ugh, I know), it was horrible. I turned to some ginger ale to help settle my stomach and I’ve been kind of leaning on that and ginger tea this past week. It has become this weeks vice (Don’t judge me).
Also my time management has been completely shot. I have not been organized since school started. I’ve been quite overwhelmed with all the new work I have to do now. It’s taking some adjusting but I bought myself a planner (as advised by my own health coach) to get organized. We both felt it was probably a good idea to set a solid schedule so I can stay on track with being a mom, work and school. I’m not complaining, I’m really excited but I just need to get my chaos along with some of my chubby in order. I’ve fallen off the healthy wagon and had some donuts ok…nbd~~~>No. Big. Deal. Well at least not yet. Tell that to my second donut (covers eyes). Ok ok I’m rambling now. Onto the salad of good health.Today’s blog post is sponsored by OrganicGirl! Keepin’ it clean and green for the start of September.
Their endless variety of salad blends are always so fresh.So, like of course since it’s the end off party of summer (boo hiss waaa), you know I made me some veggie dogs and veggie burgers. But I wouldn’t feel right just eating all that without the proper sides or main dishes. This salad is the bomb digity. I say that a lot but it’s just the perfect description. Look how pretty it is, that’s one and it tastes off the hook, that’s two. It’s sooo simple to make you cannot mess this up or maybe you can but I won’t let ya. You know we bes tight like that…I cleaned my OrganicGirl Greens, Baby Arugula and Baby Spinach and lightly tossed them in some extra virgin olive oil. I can sometimes eat my salads just like that with a sprinkle of lemon juice. Anyway, this is the type of food I’m talking about when I refer to holistic nutrition. Food that is closest to its most natural state. The greens, radishes and cucumbers were not manipulated at all during this whole process. The only thing that I did was add some veganaise (vegan mayo) to the radishes and cucumbers making it almost like a pasta salad but with no pasta. Uh-Maze!Those colors!!! So fresh so delish…A simple healthy salad that screams “Summer isn’t over yet”! Made with radishes, cucumbers, baby arugula and spinach. It’s bright, it’s bold, it’s colorful. Just what our bellies ordered and exactly how mother nature intended.Hope everyone is having a blast this weekend. Remember to stay safe, nourished, happy and full.
