Born to be a Queen – Cucumber

Do you love cucumber as much as we do? 

MB 08-10-2019

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!

Salad, Salad and Some More Salad – Infographic with Salad Options All Year Round

I found this infographic and decided to share.  This is only for metabolic balancers who are in phase 4 because the food combinations/dressing are not metabolic balance appropriate. You are welcome to use this infographic as inspiration but remember to stick to the metabolic balance rules.  If you want to have a bit of fun, you can chat with your metabolic balance coach to see how well you know your metabolic balance rules and what you can eat in your salad based on the suggestions in the infographic below.  Life isn’t always on plan so this is good practice for when you head out to the local salad bar for a meal.
