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.

Naturally Fermented Cucumber Pickles Recipe

Summary: There is more and more research giving us evidence of how crucial a healthy microbiome is, not just to digestive health, but how it also strenghtens our immune system, improves nutrient absorption, benefits our mental health and even determines our food cravings ! Probiotics capsules are helpful, provided they contain a wide range of bacteria strands, and enough colony forming units. But even then, some research suggests that they only really make a difference while we take them, and good quality probiotics can be very costly. On the other hand, fermented whole foods contain exceptionally high numbers of bacteria : an ounce of homemade, raw, unpasteurised sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) contains more bacteria than a whole bottle of good quality probiotic capsules. And they are very cheap to make at home : the only cost is the price of the produce, and a little salt. Include these naturally lactofermented cucumbers for a cheap and easy way to boost your family's friendly gut flora.
