About Organic Cucumber

Cucumbers are a very good source of the vitamins C and the mineral molybdenum. They are also a good source of vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fibre and magnesium and contain the important mineral silica. The silica in cucumber is an essential component of healthy connective tissue, which includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone. Cucumber juice is often recommended as a source of silica to improve the complexion and health of the skin, plus cucumber's high water content makes it naturally hydrating - a must for glowing skin!

Pop in a salad or chop them up and chuck them in some cous cous - they are also one of the most popular finger foods with children. Or re-create a garden party and make some cucumber sandwiches (just make sure the crusts are cut-off if you're planning to impress!)

Our whole family loves cucumber. In the summer all too often you go to the fidge and someone has taken the last chunk! A least it is easy to get more from Real Foods. Thanks too for the Pear, Grape and Cucumber Salad recipe - I would never have thought of combining those ingredients but it is now a firm favourite.

Raw Vegan Nettle Superfood Pesto Recipe

Summary: Despite their unpleasant sting, the humble wild nettles are actually tasty and very nutritious: they are high in Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Zinc, Chromium, B vitamins and trace minerals including Selenium and Manganese ! Plus, they are free and widely available, so the little care required in handling them is totally worth it. In fact, the occasional nettle sting, unpleasant as it can be, is actually a good tonic for the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Nettles are used intentionally for this purpose in a treatment called uritication. Popular ways to eat nettles include nettle soup, nettle tea and steamed nettles ; in fact you could swap the spinach in any recipe with wild foraged nettles. But long cooking times destroy some of nettles beneficial phytonutrients, so eating raw nettles like in this raw vegan nettle pesto is a bonus. Just handle the leaves carefully while washing and drying them. Thoroughly chopping the nettles in the food processor stops them from stinging. This pesto is delicious served on cucumber or tomato slices for canapés, on toast topped with roasted vegetables, or stirred through grain pasta or courgetti (spaghetti substitute made by processing raw courgettes using a spiraliser or a julienne peeler). These quantities make up quite a big batch, please feel free to halve the recipe if needed. PS: The quality and freshness of your nettles really shine through in this recipe. Use the freshest, greenest, youngest nettle leaves you can find.

Chickpea and Avocado Salad Recipe

Summary: Chickpeas, like all pulses, are high in fibre and protein, making them an all-round health food. Just one cup of cooked chickpeas provide us with half our recommended daily fibre intake. They are also a good source of phytoestrogens. Don't be fooled by how easy this salad is to put together, it is really delicious and very filling.
