Discover Why the cucumber is a must in your diet… plus a cool song and recipe!

I stumbled on this video that features a clever song to list the benefits of cucumbers!  It’s easy to forget that such a tiny veggie can have such a significant impact on our bodies.

But of course it does, right? The One who created the cucumber created our bodies too. So it was a cinch for Him to design the cucumber to have all those helpful things for our bodies.

Just have a look at Genesis 1:29.

Then Elohim said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.”

You see? Every vegetable and fruit available to us to consume has benefits for our bodies by the One who created our bodies.

So it’s nice to have a creative reminder like this song to include the cucumber in our diets.

An All Natural Nutrient

In fact, it never ceases to amaze how many wonderful attributes are built into the fruits and vegetables. If only all of us ate more of what God naturally put here on this Earth to nourish and heal our bodies! I was recently watching a great documentary called, “What the Health,” and one of the takeaways was that persons who embraced a plant-based diets were able to feel better, lose weight or conquer life-long ailments or diseases.

A plant-based diet was actually the very first diet of the bible!

But after The Flood when the Most High reset the Earth so-to-speak, He permitted us to then eat meat. Yahuah (which is the name of God in the Hebrew text, and The Bible tells us to call Him by His name, so that’s why I do), He told Noah and his family members in Genesis 9:2-4.

“All the animals of the earth, all the birds of the sky, all the small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the fish in the sea will look on you with fear and terror. I have placed them in your power. 3 I have given them to you for food, just as I have given you grain and vegetables. 4 But you must never eat any meat that still has the lifeblood in it.”

So while we may now eat meat (except for the unclean animals which are an abomination to Yahuah—because the death of the Messiah did not change the anatomy of a pig), it’s great to include more veggies and fruit in our diet. I had a family member who refused to eat vegetables (except for fried okra and a couple other exceptions), and he passed at the young age of 34 from colon cancer. It was my younger brother actually. So if you are not including veggies in your diet, I hope this post urges you to do so! Start a garden in your backyard or on your balcony if you are in an apartment and start growing! Or if you are near a Whole Foods or Wegmans or Farmer’s Market, frequent there more than Burger King is all I’m saying.

I personally love veggie smoothies. You can make them at home or get them from places like Tropical Smoothie (but ask them to omit the sugar, it will taste just as good).

Back to cucumbers, eat more of them today!

The Cucumba Remix Song

This song breaks down all the many benefits of the cucumber.  And I gotta admit… except for eating salad, I have not purchased a cucumber in quite a while. Time to change all that!

If it goes too fast, this version of the song includes lyrics and the lyrics are also below!

Song Lyrics

The Cucumber
Or as the call it in Jamaica
CU-CUMBA … CU-CUMBA
Vitamins, minerals very high number,
Silica, hair and nails get longer,
Other vitamins make your bones dem stronger,
Anti wrinkle make you look younger
95 % water
Kidney cleanser, great hydrater,
Detox, viber, good regulator,
Give your body good things don’t ne traitor
Get the cucumber cut it inna slice,
Put it inna jug of water overnight,
You know what you get for a fraction of the price ?
Energy drink full of electrolytes
Raw inna salad is the one of the use
Or as a base for your vegetable juice
Another surprise …
Put a slice on your eyes
Take away the dryness revitalize
Oh yes one thing i have left
Cucumber can also help with bad breath
Wash away with bacteria that cause the odour
Cucumber water instead of soda
Macka B medical monday
CUCUMBER! … CUCUMBER!

One of my favorite health bloggers on the web is Drew of FitLife.  He actually gives away free juicers to people who watch and comment on his videos.

Check out his cucumber and celery weight loss juice drink below. I personally do not like celery — yuck — but listen to what Drew says about it below and you might try it every now and then even if you don’t prefer it!

He talks about an enzyme in cucumbers that helps you build muscle and lower fat.

There is a ton more info and goodies online about cucumbers but I hope something I shared was helpful! You can also create pickles from cucumbers, or pickup pickles form the Farmer’s Market (they are the real deal there, not-so-much in today’s grocery stores). And eating fermenting food is good for your gut!
