In the rush of days, eating purposefully and intentionally might be put on the back burner. It’s perfectly normal: it happens to all of us! But when you do have a moment, don’t hesitate to make this Quick Greek Salad. Filled with benefits, it’s easy to make and fuels your body in the best way possible: with healthy and fresh produce, made right at home.

Greek salad is such an easy and satisfying lunch. It can be paired with your favorite protein, but could be enjoyed all on its own. I don’t eat olives too often, but I found out that they have the same healthy fats that olive oil has so this salad has extra health properties!

The kalamata olives are also a source of calcium. The olives, as well as tomatoes, target heart health and lower the risk of heart disease, while the red onion fill you with fiber. Things around here have been busy, and I am now a soccer mom :). My youngest son (almost 5) has started playing soccer about a month ago. In addition to soccer, he has also started taking voice lessons. It is really cute to hear him sing.

What do I need to make this Quick Greek Salad?

Cherry tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which supports heart health and helps to prevent sun damage.

English cucumbers help to hydrate your body and fill you with antioxidants.

Red onion is rich in quercetin, which helps to reduce inflammation and fights free radicals.

Fresh parsley is rich in vitamin K, which supports bone health.

Black kalamata olives are filled with oleic acid, which supports heart health and has cancer-fighting properties.
