All I can say is AMAZING!!!! One of my favorite treat meals after being focused and disciplined but enjoying a well deserved treat that is still very nutritious. I LOVE strawberries because they add just enough sweetness to any meal but have fantastic anti-inflammatory antioxidants that keep our bodies healthy and healing. Along with the cucumber, cranberries, sunflower seeds and the olive oil.
And if you need an additional boost of protein add 40z of chicken breast or no more than 2 boiled egg whites and/or 1/4 cup black beans.
