IS CUCUMBER A VEGETABLE

Cucumbers belong to the gourd family and come in several varieties.  Many people think of cucumbers as  a vegetable, however,  botanically speaking – they are classified as a fruit.  Cucumbers grow from flowers and they contain seeds, and these seeds can be used to plant and cultivate more cucumbers (which is what makes cucumber a fruit and not a vegetable).

DO CUCUMBERS HAVE CARBS

Cucumbers are naturally low in calories, carbs and fat.  About one cup of cucumbers contains about 4 grams of carbs.  

CUCUMBER LEMON WATER WEIGHT LOSS

Cucumber is made up of about 90 percent water, which helps keep the body hydrated.  Greater water consumption correlates with weight loss. Since cucumbers are low in calories, carbs, and fat and high in fiber, they make a smart addition to any weight loss plan. Drinking water flavored with these cucumber lemon ice cubes have significantly fewer calories than sodas and other sweetened drinks.  And if you’re on a low-carb cucumber diet, these cucumber lemon ice cubes are a great way to easily consume more cucumber.

CUCUMBER DETOX WATER

Cucumber is high in water and fiber and the seeds act as diuretic that help pass urine and flush out excess waste and toxins.  A diet rich in cucumber will promote a clean gut and a healthy digestive system.

CUCUMBER FOR SKIN

Cucumber is packed with a bevy of vitamins and minerals, making it for a healthy addition to your daily wellness plan. 

  • It provides anti-inflammatory properties which can help soothe the skin and give it a healthy rejuvenated glow. 
  • It’s an excellent source of silica, and silica is a key ingredient in collagen creation, which promotes healthy skin, hair and nails.  Silica is a trace mineral essential to our bones strength and density. (1)

Besides adding these cucumber lemon ice cubes to your drinking water, rub them on your face in the morning to reduce puffiness.  Just be sure to keep away from your eyes, as there is acidic lemon in them.

FRUIT INFUSED WATER BENEFITS

There’s nothing more refreshing than drinking a chilled glass of fruit infused water.  Besides adding freshness and flavor to water, water infused with fruit, vegetables and herbs provides a host of nutritional benefits.  

  • Stay hydrated
