#thursdaythrive  All about Cucumbers!
- Cucumbers are a source of Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, & B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Iron, Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Phosphorus, & Potassium - they are also 95% water.
- Cucumbers can cure bad breath. A slice pressed to the roof of your mouth for 30 seconds with your tongue allows the phytochemicals to kill the problematic bacteria.
- The waxy coating of a cucumber can actually remove ink, rubbing  the skin over the writing will slowly remove it.
- Pureed or sliced cucumber gives an almost instant relief to sunburnt skin - just place some against the affected areas.
- There can be a 20 degree difference between the inside of a cucumber & the actual temperature outside - this is thought to be where the phrase "cool as a cucumber" came from.
