Hello and welcome to my blog. This blog is about healthy drinks you can drink and todays star veg is *Cucumber*. When i started my clear skin diet, cucumber and carrot juice were my go to juices. I did my research so i was aware of the nutrition it both provided.

The benefits

Cucumber is made up of 95% water and therefore is hydrating. It has many benefits to the skin both topical and internally. It has traces of folic acid, vitamin A, B, C and K, to name but a few. Those with dark circles can put a slice or the juice on your dark circle area. The benefits are countless. I can testify that it will contribute to a healthy glowy skin if you incorporate this in your diet; whether eating  the vegetable as is or drinking the juice. I battled acne with this juice.

I am also aware you will be getting rid of the fiber part of the vegetable which is good for digestion. You can put it to use by making a facial out of it.

Where to get the juicer

You will need a very good juicer to grind the carrot especially. Argos had an affordable one in their Good Cook range and a few years ago it was not too expensive however you are now looking at spending more than £100 for a good one. I also got one from Asda from £30 however the motor didnt survive however they do have a more expensive ones as well. As mentioned above, to get one with a high watts you are looking at £100. Let me know if you have tried any juicing lately.

Feel free to share other vegetables you juice i would like to try.

Until next time, happy drinking and happy good friday.

Another 5 a day, vitamin packed smoothie for the week. 

I know i have craberry juice in the picture. I totally forgot to get coconut water so i was thinking to use that juice but due to the sugar content, i was a bit reluctant.

What i did was use water in the first blend with a bit more cinnamon to make it drinkable. I tasted the first blend without the juice and i liked it so decided to use water and more cinnamon. Will do this going forward.

Switching it up this time round. I think now that i know it tastes nice with water i will use water. Seeing that some of this fruits already have sugar on them.

Until next time, happy smoothie making.
