Cucumber

Yes! I found a vegetable that’s in season that I haven’t blogged about yet. Cucumbers!

Cucumbers are delicious, healthy, and refreshing. One cup of cucumber contains a mere 20 calories. It also provides you with lots of water as well as 20 mg of calcium, 185 mg of potassium, and 16 mg of magnesium (not a lot, but every little bit counts!).

Try adding cucumber slices to your water for a refreshing drink. Snack on cucumber spears. Or make a simple salad of chopped cucumber and tomato topped with freshly ground pepper and a little bit of salt.
