Super hydrating fennel and cucumber salad

Summer is here, which means it is even more important to stay hydrated. Drinking water is of course key, but you can get hydration from the foods you eat as well. This super hydrating fennel and cucumber salad will do just that. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients.

Cucumbers:
They are an excellent source of caffeic acid and vitamin C, two antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties that help fight oxidative stress and reduce signs of aging. Cucumbers are also packed with water, which means better skin, better hydration, and better removal of toxins from the body.

Fennel:
It is rich in antioxidants, and has shown benefits in digestion, heart health, blood pressure regulation, and immunity. It is also a great source of iron and has been shown to help with iron-deficiency anemia.

Lemon juice:
It is high in vitamin C, which helps strengthen the immune system, and also flushes out toxins by acting as a diuretic.

Directions:

Mix and toss the following in a bowl:

1 cucumber sliced
1 fennel bulb sliced
1/2 a lemon juiced
1 tsp of coconut sugar
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of white vinegar

Make sure ingredients are organic
