Just a Healthy Tip Today

I had coffee with a new friend and German class today so I didn't have the time to dedicate to a makeup tip. Also, this is my off day for washing my hair. All I did this morning was brush it and I am sure no one is interested in seeing me do that.

     But as promised (mainly for myself) here is a healthy lunch idea.
I cut up one cucumber and 3 small tomatoes and put them in a bowl. Then I added a small amount of olive oil and a bigger amount of red wine vinegar. I don't have exact amounts as this is done to taste. Then I salt and pepper it. I ate one bowl of it for lunch along with a fresh baked pretzel (the wonders of living in Germany), and saved the rest for a side with dinner. The longer you let it sit in the oil and vinegar the better it tastes. Usually, I would also add 1/2 an onion, but I was out of those today.

     I also drank the same tea from the other day. You can find that recipe here

The lunch was so delicious that even Georgie wanted some.


  1. I eat this almost daily during the summer time. It's so refreshing and light! I love it! To get DH to eat it (and love it, too), I add a teaspoon of light mayo to his half. Sometimes I'll just slice up a tomato or a cucumber and lightly salt it to go with dinner. I love them!

  2. WOW! This looks so delicious! Love Georgie :)
