Natures “powerhouse” humble vegetable

Cucumbers are an easily accessible year round vegetable to definitely include in your dietary regimen. We chose 41 years ago to top every sandwich at O’Carrs with them as well as using in our salads. Here are a few reasons to eat them with gusto!

1.) they are a great source of B vitamins and carbohydrates

2.) having trouble drinking your 8 glasses of water a day? Munch on a whole cucumber they’re 95% water and the rest is a good source of fiber too.

3.) calories are negligible

4.) The English cucumber variety is known as burp less  if that’s a problem for you.

You already know about the Spa reasons for using cucumbers as a facial (reducing puffiness under your eyes).
