St. Patrick’s Snack

Happy St. Patrick’s day!

Enjoy this fresh and festive cucumber lime salad as a delicious alternative to your usual Friday happy hour chips and dip routine. Cucumber is a great choice for athletes as it is hydrating, anti-inflammatory and a good source of potassium (an important electrolyte in the body). The lime gives it a bright freshness, and the garlic more anti-inflammatory benefits. Pair it with some avocado for a little extra healthy fat, fiber, and overall yumminess. If you really still want chips and dip, chop the cucumber into small chunks and eat as salsa!
