Combat bad breath??? Who needs toothpaste hey! These little tubes of goodness are relatively cheap at the grocery store, so there is no excuse not to munch on them!

Healthy Recipes for You!!

Each week as we introduce a new Juicy Fact, I’ll be sharing a few recipes with you so you can grab these benefits and go! I’ll be cooking these healthy treats myself and handing you some hints alongside so you can get the best out of each of them!

Let’s eat some cucumbers!

Just an FYI, these links are not affiliated. I have found these myself and tried them myself, for my own healthy benefits. I will not receive any entitlements or moolah for sharing with you 🙂

I don’t like green smoothies full stop. I actually hate them, really. They are usually bland, chunky and leafy (thanks Kale). BUT THIS. OMG. Hallelujah! A green smoothie that tastes good. I don’t know if it is cause of the cucumber, or the vanilla protein powder you chuck in with it, but this one is a goodie! It’s on my weekly shop now (cause you know, green smoothies are good for you — and it’s the only I actually like — no shit).

Paleo Bang Bang Chicken with Mango Cucumber Salad by Eat Drink Paleo

Putting the bad food shot aside, this has to be the best chicken I’ve tried IN MY LIFE. (I’m really excited about food today – must be hungry). If you follow me on Insta, you saw me rave about it – it smelled good, and it tasted even better? Yes well, the seconds were fantastic too.

Homemade Flavoured Water by The Whoot

I loooove flavoured water, but not when it’s those Lemon Water’s you get from the servo and they have 50g of sugar in them. YEP – 50g! IN WATER. So I loved this infograph of a  bunch of flavoured water’s to try out at home. I grabbed my mason jars and chopped up some fruit. These ones are (left) mango, pineapple, cucumber, ginger and lemon, and (right), cucumber, watermelon, and lemon. Sooo good and I love to leave them for a day in the fridge so the fruit infuses well!

Go buy that Juicy Fact!

Cucumbers are amazing. That’s all I’m going to say. I love prepping my detox water’s in the fridge so they are easy to grab and go paired with a pretty umbrella (why not be on holiday every day!)

Cucumbers for everyone, I say!

Next week, is a juicy food that’s my all time favourite, and it really is very very juicy, you will always have trouble holding it between your hands! #squish #orange #notorangesthough

If you enjoyed this week’s Juicy Fact, throw me a comment, I’d love to hear it – especially if you’ve tried out these recipes! Do go and throw the makers a comment too – blogs need love too.

Much love,
