A healthy hint for us thats stir crazy!

Cucumbers… I didn’t know this…& to think all these years I’ve
only been making salads with the cucumbers… :two_hearts:

AT IT DIFFERENTLY NOW. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.

  1. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

  2. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

  3. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give
    off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.

  4. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a
    Few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

  5. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

  6. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers
    have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

  7. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don’t have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks
    great but also repels water.

  8. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

10.Stressed out and don’t have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

  1. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don’t have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemicals will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

  2. Looking for a ‘green’ way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the
    shine, but is won’t leave streaks and won’t harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean.

  3. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer ways to solve life’s everyday problems.

Lithuanian snack: cucumber slices dipped in honey! :yum:


Now here is a topic that got left on the shelf.


I eat them raw or just sprinkle a pinch of salt and chilli powder.

We use it almost daily, we add tomatoes and several other vegetables to make curry.


Cilantro is another healthy veggie, it’s benefits are wide reaching.

Wow, there is power behind that veggie!! Since my childhood whenever my mom would make cucumber salad, she cut few ending slices at the end and the bigger piece (end) would place on her forehead and 2 more on her cheeks. In summer the piece on forehead is cooling, I put one piece cut in half under my eyes, it sticks usually well.

That page is “not found”. Those juices look delish!!

This home remedy I do twice a year is an immunity booster, it helps with colds and digestive track, just do not overdo it as vinegar is acidic too much can affect your tooth enamel and the esophagus, some prefer to dilute the intake or rinsing mouth after…
Btw turmeric is most effectif when combining with fat and black pepper… (google it)


I stopped buying cleaning supplies except bleach I use it rarely, for stains on whites or toilet stains.
The power of vinegar (white, the cheapest) and baking soda (available in large size in US not so in Europe, just why?)

Vinegar has long shelf life is biodegradable, environmentally safe and safe in household. One study showed vinegar kills 99 percent of surface bacteria, 80 percent of germs, and 82 percent of molds on a counter. You can use it also as air refresher when mixed with herbs, lavender, rosemary or just essentiell oils, also good when a family has a flu.

Make your own vinegar with orange, grapefruit or lemon peals (only the skin, after you you’ve done fresh juice)

The power of baking soda is endless, in fact it’s quite affordable (not so in Europe in large quantities). I have to attest that using baking soda and white vinegar loosens drainage much better than the chemical ones… it’s also more ideal where you have hard water with mineral (calcium) deposits.

Keep a small dish with baking soda in fridge to neutralize odors.


You can extend your search for more info :sweat_smile:
(I think that was my longest post ever :rofl:)


Sorry, I think I deleted it off my google drive, that’s where the link leads. Sorry.

Oh! I like this one A Lot! :heart: :100::+1:t5: I’m definitely sharing your post, and this thread.

I just watched this, it’s been uploaded two years, still relevant.


Benefits of eating bananas at the right time… and I love banana bread… I eat bananas frequently and they often get really ripe. I just made before Easter one cake a round one in the torte form… I used ingredients without measuring except for flour. I use sunflower oil instead of butter because it’s faster… it was very lightweight this time and not dry… it always comes out differently.
