Since being home from vacation, I’ve been trying to eat super clean. Europe was a lovely experience filled with bread, wine, & pasta, and although we walked everywhere, I came home feeling disgustingly, overly, way too bloated. Needless to say, the “I’m off vacay feeling, ate too much crap, & need to step it up ASAP” feeling hit me immediately after I exited customs.

Some of my post-trip meals/snacks: tons of vegetables, summer fruits, sashimi, low-sodium soups, Boca burgers, arugula, eggs…& this little dime of a salad. This recipe is definitely one of my skinny tricks: it’s filled with water-filled fruits, zero calorie [ yes, zero calorie ] dressing, & the no fat, no sodium, energy-boosting veggie, cucumber [ <3 to put a few refreshing slices of this in my sparkling water too ].

A Sexy, Summer Salad:

 Serves 2-3

1 cup of watermelon chunks

1 cup of hothouse cucumber, sliced

About 10 cherries, pitted

1 medium nectarine, sliced

1 1/2 tablespoon of red wine vinegar

1/2 lime juice, squeezed

1 sprinkle of sea salt

Directions: grab a big bowl & throw in watermelon chunks, cucumber slices, cherries, & nectarine slices. Add red wine vinegar, lime juice, & a sprinkle of salt. Toss lightly with a big spoon. In case you’re wondering, the dressing is the red wine vinegar + lime juice + sea salt = 0 cals. So easy, so delicious!

    Wow I am glad you liked Europe so much!! Isnt it weird that we really walk everywhere (if you live in a city at least) .. when I came to live in the US for a year that was so hard for me NOT walking to the grocery store etc.. needless to say I ended up gaining a lot of weight and weight my heaviest back then (that was 5 yrs ago)
    I am currently on your detox by the way, I am one of the girls who you sent the intructions to :) thanks .. I am already on day 3! however (and please dont laugh) I didnt eliminate coffee from my diet and still have it with a bit of skim milk and soy -.- bad I know. but I have to do this for my mental clarity (and to prevent withdrawal headache, it gets pretty bad)
