Here in my home we always have a cold pitcher of water with sliced cucumbers in it as a refresher
Or sliced fruit.

If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

A couple things interesting about cucumbers.  If you eat a cucumber by itself after washing it off, it will cool you down better than water since cucumbers maintain a temperature about 12 degrees below room temperature.  This was a confirmed myth on the Science Channel Myth Busters program.  Another thing about eating a cucumber by itself is you want to eat it from the  tip end first and eat down toward the stem end since that way you do not eat any bitter cucumber.  Curry powder is worth adding to cucumber salad recipes since the turmerick in the curry powder also acts as a cooling agent (translate anti-inflamatory).  If you get a chance, buy cucumbers at farmers markets since maybe you'll end up with varieties of cucumbers other than English Cucumbers and some of these are quite good.  A good friend from Egypt originally grew several varieties of Egyptian cucumbers in his garden and I tasted some of those and they were quite good.
