Do you love cucumber as much as we do?
In our kitchen, cucumber is an absolute highlight. It consists of 97 percent water, has a mild taste and as a raw food, goes well with many dishes and is a natural addition to almost every salad. It has an impressive nutrient list to its name, too! It’s rich in carotene, vitamins E, K, B1, B2 and B6 and contains among others calcium (15mg per 100g), phosphorus (25mg per 100g) and potassium (140mg per 100g). Cucumbers have a fabulous detoxifying effect on our bodies, they help reduce uric acid and have a healthy diuretic effect. Fresh cucumbers are best stored in a cool place and separated from other vegetables.
Quick tip: Clean the peel well and then eat it. It’s rich in silica and therefore can help strengthen your skin, hair and nails.
Especially important: When shopping, please look out for your locally grown produce – if they are organic, too, then that’s even better!
