Cilantro Lime Cucumbers, Vegan and Gluten-Free

Cilantro Lime Cucumbers

Thanks to my brother-in-law, our veggie garden will be overflowing with cucumbers soon!  We have a high demand for cucumbers in my house…my dad makes huge batches of dill pickles that last us through the winter (if we’re lucky!) and fresh cucumbers are my fall-back plan for getting veggies into Noah on a daily basis. While Noah is pretty good with eating a variety of veggies, I can be certain he will eat cucumbers for breakfast, lunch and dinner!  And this is totally fine by me because although cucumbers are made up of mostly water, they are also nutrient dense.

Check it out!

  • Cucumbers provide vitamin C and vitamin A
  • A good source of folic acid
  • Contain important minerals such as potassium, magnesium and molybdenum
  • Provide silica, a mineral that is important for the health of our muscle, ligament and connective tissues
