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 Ultimate Green Juice Recipe

Summary: This is perhaps the ultimate green juice. It is packed full of nutrition with a wide variety of vegetables and dark leafy greens, yet it tastes absolutely delicious. Green juice does grow on you, so if your taste buds do not find this quite palatable yet, please feel free to add a green apple. But please remember that when juicing fruits you deprive yourself of the valuable fibre that stop the fructose causing your blood sugar levels to raise rapidly, which in time leads to insulin resistance and weight gain. So do add an apple if you need it, but aim to reduce it to half an apple, then no apple at all ... Choose all your produce organic, seasonal and local if possible.

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.
