A cucumber a day

At dinner the other night, I ate a whole cucumber. Well, most of one. I sliced it and put it on the table to share, but I was the only one who was eating it.

Then at the grocery store today, I thought, I should get another cucumber - it was so yummers the other day.

As I was walking home, I googled "eat cucumber everyday," and, wouldn't you know it, there are people on the internet who say it is a good idea!

I got home, ate lunch, and puttered around for a while. Then I went into the kitchen and pulled my cuke out of the fridge. I wonder if Olivia Palermo eats cucumber everyday. Or that Emma Stone. Or Charlize. Or Annie...Chop chop chop...better take some photos for the blog. I brought the bowl with me upstairs to the office as I tried to list off in my head everything I was supposed to do today.  Mail a package for Etsy, buy some razors, drop off the DVDs to the library, start the laundry... Then I sat down at the desk and mindlessly ate the entire bowl of cucumber while reading blogs.

How do I feel?

I have a tummy ache.

I ate a whole avocado (mashed with lime juice) with a few strips of chicken breast on two wholegrain wraps for lunch (in other words, two avocado and chicken wraps). I guess I deserve this uncomfortable overstuffed feeling.

I am about to google "I ate too much treatment"


  1. Sliced cucumber is one of my favourite snacks. We go through a lot of cucumbers in this house!

    I will second Amelia, TONS of cucumbers are eaten here too. Every single day. They are the best and the easiest veggie to throw in front of your kid with any kind of protein. Makes me feel like a super mom every time :)

  3. It tastes even better if you add some Asian chili dressing. :) I probably wouldn't eat it on an empty stomach though.

  4. The pictures of the cucumbers are so gorgeous - I will have to add these to my shopping list. Hope your tummy is feeling better
