Work it Out Wednesday: Bellydance

Another youtube gem I found and am using in my workouts. LOVE it! Doing the entire series really gets you sweating, too, which is always good.

Also, I am loving finding different ways to prepare raw veggies! I've been munching on this treat this week: Thai style cucumber carrot salad. Sweet, sour and a little spicy = delicious!
Here's the easy recipe I adjusted from what I found through a google search:
Thai Cucumber Carrot Salad
2 cucumbers, thinly sliced with a grater or peeler
3 carrots, thinly sliced with grater/peeler
2 tsp vinegar
2 Tbs fish sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
Red pepper flakes, to taste

-In small bowl, combine liquid ingredients. 
-Add sugar and dissolve.
-In large container, pour liquid mixture over carrots and cucumbers. Toss to combine.
-Add red pepper flakes according to preference. Toss and serve cold.

Have you made some healthy choices this week? Celebrate them and the fact that you made the decisions towards a healthier you. Every little bit counts.
Happy Wednesday, Beauties, go out and enjoy your beautiful life!
