“You are Cool” – “Cool” Uses for Cucumbers
Inside this Card You Will Find The Following Information
Cucumber is a diuretic that promotes the flow of urine and stimulates the kidneys to flush out both wastes and fatty deposits from the body. Cucumber is primarily composed of water but also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling.
They are very easy to grow and the fresh ones are fluorescent green!
Here Are Some Other Creative Uses for Cucumbers
- make a cucumber cake. Just follow a carrot cake recipe and substitute
cucumbers instead of carrots. Instead of cinnamon, use fresh mint.
- make a cucumber facial mask by mixing crushed cucumber, 1 egg white and 1tsp of
raw honey to tighten and hydrate your skin.
- Juice Fresh Cucumbers and Apples to cleanse your body.
-rub a fresh cucumber to shine your shoes.
- boil some cucumbers or peels and inhale the rich phytochemical steam
to relieve a headache or calm your nerves.

On a visit to Geneva Switzerland, my family and I noticed vines growing along a bridge. They were zucchini and cucumbers there for public picking! What a fabulous idea. They were planted in old garbage cans and looked magnificent.
We urge you all to take these ideas to heart. It costs virtually nothing to plant a seed somewhere. There are so many people who could use the food, and this small effort can turn into something very big and wonderful.
Ideas: Outside a nursing home, a public place, a school. There are some schools these days that are more concerned about law suits than serving fresh food. It’s ok to feed the students sugar, soda and white flour, but planting a fresh vine outside is a “possible lawsuit”. Friends, We are the change. We are in this together.
