Reach for the cucumber when you want a snack.

A whole cup of cucumber contains just 13 calories, making it ideal to munch on between meals. Eat it alone or with low-fat dip, such as salsa. Eat a cucumber slice in your sandwich. Have you ever heard the phrase “as cool as a cucumber”? This comes from the fact that cucumbers are made almost entirely from water, making them feel cool inside. Pickles are made from cucumbers.
