Healthy Living: Cucumber Vegetable Cups


I’m throwing a bridal shower next week. My best friend’s daughter is getting married.

Did you read that correctly? My. Best. Friend.

If she’s MY best friend, this means I’m also old enough to have a daughter getting married.

Oh.

No.

I’m

Not.

For real.

Mostly.

It’s hard to acknowledge that we’re old enough to have children getting married and having babies, but we are, mostly.

I haven’t been to a shower in a while, I must admit, because my crowd is busy navigating the waters of middle school. We’re in that weird limbo between our own bridal showers and our children’s showers.

However, I DO have to admit that in all the showers I’ve been to recently, there hasn’t been much healthy food. Don’t get me wrong. I love me some cupcakes and some meatballs, but it’s always good to have a healthy option for a group gathering like a bridal shower or work event. So many people are eating gluten-free these days that it’s also important for them. These are a fun way to serve something artful and deliver a fun and healthy option, all in one.

Directions:
Peel cucumbers. Slice into 1/2-inch rounds.
