Wonderlike komkommer

Hier is ‘n paar feite oor komkommers wat my rerig verras het. Ek het dit nie beproef nie, want gewoonlik eet ek net komkommers – daagliks v die afgelope 6 maande!

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day.  One cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.

2. Feeling tired in the afternoon?  Put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber.  Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates, that can provide that quick pick-me-up, that can last for hours.

3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower?  Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror.  It will eliminate the fog, and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds?  Place a few slices in a small pie tin, and your garden will be free of pests all season long.  The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum, to give off a scent undetectable to humans, but, that will drive garden pests crazy, and make them flee the area.

5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite, before going out, or to the pool?  Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area, for a few minutes.  The phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer, and, reducing the visibility of cellulite.  This works on wrinkles, too!

6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache?  Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed, and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes, to replenish essential nutrients the body loses, keeping everything in equilibrium, and, thus, avoiding both a hangover and headache!

7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries, and, often used by European trappers, traders and explorers, for quick meals, to thwart off starvation.

8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don’t have enough time to polish your shoes?  Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe.  It’s chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine, that, not only looks great, but, also, repels water.

9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge?  Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don’t have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa?  Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water.  The chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water, and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown to reduce stress in new mothers and college students, during final exams.

11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don’t have gum or mints?  Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath.  The phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth, that is responsible for causing bad breath.

12. Looking for a “green” way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel?  Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean.  Not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but, is won’t leave streaks, and won’t harm your fingers or fingernails, while you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake?  Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the mistake,  This also works great on the marks of crayons and markers, which the kids have used to decorate the walls.

Kan jy nou meer! Vergeet van alles, stock op op komkommers! :lol Gaan beproef bietjie hiervan en kom vertel of dit rerig werk?

Geniet die naweek julle – en natuurlik die rugby ook. GO BULLS!!

    Kyk hierdie oor ONIONS. Sjoe

    In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that
    visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.
    Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

    The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very
    healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was
    different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a
    dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The
    doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and
    place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did
    find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria,
    therefore, keeping the family healthy.

    Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several
    years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were
    many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with
    onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must
    work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)
    The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around
    your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or
    under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We
    did it last year and we never got the flu.
    If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.
    If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..

    Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who
    regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with
    this most interesting experience about onions:

    Weldon,thanks for the reminder. I don’t know about the farmers
    story…but, I do know that I contacted pneumonia and needless to say I was very
    ill…I came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put one
    end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar…placing the
    jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in
    the morning from the germs…sure enough it happened just like that…the onion was a
    mess and I began to feel better.

    Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed
    around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful
    antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

    This is the other note.


    Onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions. You
    should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion. It’s not even safe
    even if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your refrigerator.

    It’s already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a
    bit, that it can be a danger to you (and doubly watch out for those onions you put
    in your hotdogs at the baseball park!)

    If you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you’ll probably be
    okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put on your sandwich,
    you’re asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato in a potato
    salad, will attract and grow bacteria faster than any commercial mayonnaise will
    even begin to break down.

    Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize
    onions. Please remember it is dangerous to cut onions and try to use it to cook the next
    day, it becomes highly poisonous for even a single night and creates
    Toxic bacteria which may cause Adverse Stomach infections because of excess
    Bile secretions and even Food poisoning.

    Proof: when you have paint fumes in a room, peeled and cut onions in a bowl
    of water neutralizes the fumes, so, it does the same for germs and bugs.
