This cucumber and tomato recipe totally surprised me I have to be honest with you. I am not a huge tomato fan, I like tomatoes in small quantities and normally I just like them roasted. As some of you know Mike and I and a few other challengers are doing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset. So far we are all loving it. One of the best things about The Beachbody Ultimate Reset is trying out new recipes. We did The Beachbody Ultimate Reset 4 years ago and had amazing results. It is funny because some of the recipes that I did not enjoy back then I love now. It just goes to show you that you should always play around in the kitchen and never say never to a food group or recipe.
This recipe is filled with flavor and was even better the next day. Thankfully while on The Beachbody Ultimate Reset you have the opportunity to repeat some of the recipes you enjoyed. This is one we definitely enjoyed. For those of you that are following the 21 Day Fix Portion Control Eating Plan you will want to bookmark this recipe. It would be 2 Greens and 1 tsp. I will use this one when we do Hammer & Chisel next month since with we use the 21 Day Fix Portion Control Eating Plan with this workout program.
