Cucumbers with the seeds scooped out and filled with hummus, avocado, carrots, tomatoes, onion and sprouts. So refreshing, healthy and light and an easy low-carb, low-sodium, gluten-free, alternative to bread.

This is a quick, 5-minute lunch idea. I love the idea of using cucumbers in place of bread as a sort of garden “baguette”. You can fill them with anything you would put on a sandwich – tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad or even cold cuts.

I got this idea from the Low-So Good Cookbook which features recipes for low sodium diets. Since bread tends to be high in sodium, it’s an easy swap not just for the sodium conscience but also for gluten-free, low-carb, egg-free, and dairy-free diets.
