A cucumber sandwich probably has a whole truckload of vitamins and minerals although there is only one vegetable in it. I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to discuss the health benefits of cucumbers here as well.
If you have been pushing aside this green miracle, then shame on you! However, it's never too late to start having cucumbers in your everyday diet.
You can consume cucumbers for healthy radiant skin. If you have been forking out money for expensive facial masks and cleansers, now you have a cheaper alternative.
Blend cucumbers and tomatoes and apply on your face. In a couple of weeks, you'll have a complexion that will break many hearts! The only problem will probably be the mess in the kitchen and washroom.
Beauty comes at a cost, now doesn't it? :D
Cucumbers are the best answer for sunburns. Just cut a few slices and apply to affected areas. Who said aloe vera is best was just kidding themselves.
Place the cucumbers on top of one slice of bread. Scoop a nice amount of tuna and spread it on the cucumbers. Add a dash of your favourite sauce - in my case, honey mustard. Top with another slice of bread and you're done!
You could also place it in the oven for a last minute toast before consuming a sandwich full of goodness!
