This Sparked Me!

Cucumbes have a cooling affect on the body because 95% of a cucumber is made up of water. Cucumbers conatin C, K, potassium and magnesium great for dieters and diabetics as it is low in calories and fat and it acts like a natural diuretic and the flesh is where you get vitamin C. Eat cucumber sandwiches, in salads, with sour cream and chopped onion as a side, or as a snack in Hummus, salsa, or whatever. Gas caused by the seeds slices,remove them, and viola,or try English Cucumbers. (No Gas)

    i don't like onions, but i LOVE cucumbers, so anytime I need to add some texture to something, I throw them in. I love to add cukes to my burgers, and sandwiches in lieu of lettuce.
