Cucumbers in and of themselves may seem like a boring vegetable, but they’re actually very healthy for you. They have a high natural water content, which makes them very hydrating. Perfect for those hot summer months!

Cucumbers are also high in vitamin K, which we need for healthy bones. In addition, cucumbers contain other phytonutrients that provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
