Enjoy cucumbers this month!

Let’s celebrate National Cucumber Month this June by learning a bit about the nutritional components of the vegetable. Cucumbers are a great vegetable to enjoy over the summer because they can provide hydration on warmer days. 98% of the weight of a cucumber can be attributed to water.

Eating this source of vitamin K will contribute to wound healing by supporting our bodies while clotting our blood.
