Cucumbers come in different sizes and shapes. For instance, the Persian cucumbers (from Iran) are 4 to 7 inches long without seeds. The seedless or burpless cucumbers do not give gas to people when we compare them to the ones with seeds. They are sweeter, thin-skinned, tiny in size, no seeds and commonly eaten in sliced form as part of the salads. We can use them with yogurt, mint, salt and lemon juice.
The East Asian cucumbers or the ones in Pakistan are ridged, bumpy, deep green and mild in taste. Mostly, we use them for slicing, salads, and pickling. There are various uses of this green vegetable and comes with a handful of nutritional benefits. Despite their prominent role in the meals, the dermatologists and makeup professionals use them in facials placing the sliced pieces over the eyes.
In Pakistan, we are not used to 'clean eating' which is something to worry about as a nation. We must adopt a vegetable diet and make it part of our eating routine. We are not asking you to move to a vegetarian diet completely and forget about meat or chicken. Just making use of vegetables as part of your lunch or dinner meals will open healthy avenues for you and your family. Obesity is on the rise and we must come out of the habit of junk food consumption before it consumes us and we may not have a chance to turn back. Life is not sweet on giving second chances to everyone.
