Tuesday, February 12th is Tasty Tuesday, the food is Cucumbers!
Go - wash and eat (don't peel) - LOVE the fiber in the skin
Slow - cucumber sandwich - people in England LOVE these!
Whoa - with ranch dressing - people in America LOVE to dip!
Cucumbers are low in calories and contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal for promoting hydration. They are also high in important vitamins and minerals.
