Cucumbers - Miracle food.

Looking for a way to avoid a headachey hangover? Eat four cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Why? Because cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, meaning you avoid both a hangover and headache :)


i know what you can do with a cucumber and it doesn't involve hangover cure...lol nice one it's worth a try as is most other urban myths for festive sillyness.


Cucumber is best natural diuretic known, secreting and promoting the flow of urine. Helps in kidney and urinary bladder disease. Liver disease Pancreatic disease The potassium content of cucumber makes it highly useful for conditions of high and low blood pressure.

They're good in salads too.


...there are heaps of uses for cucumber not just for hangovers....but I would prescribe water myself, or a combination of water with slices of cucumber in it...the body is usually dehydrated after hitting the drink and water seems to work a blast and flushes the system......cucumbers could be good for putting on tired eyes...and is relaxing.....

...I just remembered something that involved a cucumber...how could I ever forget....when we were living in Sydney we went to a an Aussie guys 21st birthday, my boyfriends best friends brothers birthday....and the birthday boys bunch of young friends hired a stripper for him...and she gave a show in front of all the guests lets just say...she found a use for the birthday boy to use the cucumber on her.....lol....the older folk (ladies that is) couldn't bring themselves to look but all the males in typical fashion were up close and personal and were all eyes on talk about locked into focus!....lol including mine...well I was looking to thinking oh that poor cucumber!...lol


Hope the cucumber was fresh. Nothing worse than a soft cucumber.

"Dont forget - Good habits result from resisting temptation"
The best thing I have read here yet.

@Mathias first of all am loving your name Mathias Clay how cool is that....yes that statement is great but that is an old ancient proverb that has been around for yonkers......but in saying that it is a goodie!....


they are good on your eyes when having a facial too =P


hey check this out..... Japanese love growing wacky-shaped fruits. If you have a hard time convincing your kids to eat their greens, maybe you might want to get these star-shaped and heart-shaped cucumbers. these cucumbers represent the cumulative efforts of an agricultural coop determined to make food preparation a little bit more exciting. Comprised of nine women in Chiba, a suburb of Tokyo, this grass roots organization cleverly uses plastic molds affixed to the stem of the plant, with which they can create heart and star shapes when the cucumber is sliced cross-wise.

haha very nice but that's nothing compared to their other inventions like squared watermelons or apple flavoured pineapples etc, those are epic!
