In this blog post, we will look at the benefits of eating cucumber at night. You know that feeling, where you’re crawling into bed after a long day at work and all you can think about is how nice it’d be to hurl yourself face first onto the mattress? Yeah, well I’ve discovered the cure.
A few weeks ago I was told about this wonderful thing called ‘eating cucumber’. Apparently, it’s one of the most refreshing and rejuvenating things you can eat.
I must admit; I was very dubious, but after some convincing (and some bribery) on behalf of my friend, I finally gave in and tried it for myself.
The first night I ate it just as a healthy snack, and the effects were immediate. The weariness evaporated from my body, and I felt invigorated and refreshed as if I’d been sleeping for hours.
I’ve now been eating cucumber regularly for around three weeks now, and have noticed many benefits from doing so. Not only have I been more energetic, but my skin glows, my eyes are brighter and I’ve even had comments that I’m looking slimmer!
Now, before you go buying up all the cucumbers in town here’s a warning. Eating them before bedtime is probably not a good idea. When you eat them before bed your body will be too occupied with digesting your meal to sleep.
So the next time you’re feeling a bit under the weather, skip that cup of tea and reach for a cucumber instead – you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.
