Healthy Cucumber Snack
This healthy cucumber snack is my new favorite afternoon snack. It is so easy to make and tastes delicious. Cucumber’s increase your energy and boost your metabolism. The olive oil is a healthy fat and lemon juice helps detox and cleanse your blood of impurities. The cayenne pepper is a also a detox agent.
It is a super food snack! You will love this post workout. I can’t wait to make this with fresh cucumbers from my garden. This is great for clean eating! I also love to use this in combination with Detox Water. It is a great combination for added detox with this healthy cucumber snack.
This snack is naturally gluten free and is Paleo too! It is also a Candida Friendly and Whole 30 complaint Recipe. Best of all it is a low calorie food too! With each 1 tsp of Olive Oil it is only 1 WW point so depending on how much oil you use this is a low point snack too!
If you are eating Low Carb or following a Keto Diet you will love to add this detox side dish to your breakfast, lunch or dinner menus. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

- Slice cucumbers and marinade in olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl. I let mine soak for 30 minutes but you can make and marinade overnight too!

How long do you let them sit in the marinade?
At least 30 minutes 🙂

Just enough to cover. 2 TBSP olive oil, 1 TBSP lemon and 1/4 tsp cayenne but it is all to your taste.
This is commonly made in Mexico, but never ever with oil.

Yes but it is milder so I would use more. You can also use red pepper or chili flakes/powder instead of cayenne pepper.
