Cucumbers with Yogurt & Mint


Almost every day I eat with my energy in mind, but I don't let that be the end of it. I take what I have learned about what works best for my body and take it one step further in order to connect with the changing seasons!

While there are many effective ways to get more energy and build your productivity, I've found it very important to pay attention to the seasons.

"But wait a minute," you say. "Aren't I supposed to be eating great food all of the time?"

Yes, you are! And after you understand what foods work best for your body, you should then adjust to fit the seasons. Over the past few years, I've found this to be the best way to get healthy, build my productivity, and increase my energy, and one of the best summer foods that helps with all of it is cucumbers:

Cucumber

? Contains 90% water
? Relieves edema
? Effective diuretic
? Cleanses and purifies the blood
? Helps break down protein (better digestion = more energy!)
