Look for dark green Cucumbers. Good Cucumbers do have a bumpy surface. Choose Cucumbers that are about 10 to 20 cm long.
Cucumbers are usually waxed and so if you can, get Cucumbers that are not waxed.
If the cucumber is old, it will appear yellowish.
Nothing to report.
Cucumbers contain a lot of water and the people of the Middle East and Central Asia are known for drinking Cucumber juice. In these countries, people drink Cucumber juice on hot days to help cool their body.
Cucumbers have a lot of Vitamin A in their peel, but if you buy waxed Cucumbers, then you should peel the Cucumber. Once this happens though, you loose most of the Vitamin A.
Cucumbers and apples are often waxed, unless organically grown. Once waxed, no washing can remove the wax. You have no choice but to peel.

Have you been wanting to do hatha yoga (stretching) but have found it either too difficult or you are not that flexible? If yes, and even if no, watch Jesse do some pure hatha yoga routines.
flow yoga, each pose in pure or traditional hatha yoga is held for a few minutes. While holding the pose, you focus the mind on the stretch. When you focus the mind, that's when you find silence.
