Ever since I was little, I have loved cucumber. And when I say love I mean LOVE!
I could eat it everyday with every meal.
So as I made breakfast this morning, I started wondering. How good is cucumber for you?
Obviously it has a high water content, it is used as a beauty aid for skin rejuvenation but what else. I googled it and did not find to much info.
So for the Friday, I will ask you all "how good is cucumber for you and, do you like it?"

Monday was St. Patty's day, so I splurged and bought a piece of corned beef from Whole Foods.
No nitrates and no crazy ingredients. This little piece cost $15 dollars. Obscenely expensive, but I really wanted to make some for my girlfriend with cabbage, onions and carrots (some of her favorite veggies). I must say it tasted very very good.
Breakfast this morning was left over corned beef with eggs and CUCUMBER.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I love cucumber! No idea what health benefits it may offer, I just eat it because it tastes so good and can't possibly be *bad* for us.

Btw, I've updated my blog a few times recently, let me know what you think if you take a peek. I don't think anyone else has seen it besides you, actually. Pretty pitiful that I have a blog no one even knows about, haha.

The pics are not showing on your blog. Might just be a temporary blogspot issue.
But I can tell from your posts, that you have been eating really well! ;-)
Keep it up.
Thanks for your continued reading of mine.

I love cucumber too :) Why'd you take off the skins?

sometimes the non-organic ones have so much wax on them, I can't seem to even scrub it off. So peeled this one.
I got some organic ones at the market this weekend. Great for cucumber salad. ;-)
