Autism Month
Today you are going to watch a video to see what it is like for a person with autism to walk down the street.  This 3 minute, 16 second video is the perspective of one person, but it’s a very common experience for people with autism while walking.

Cucumbers will be served for snacks today

Cucumber is a healthy food choice that is low in calories and high in key vitamins and antioxidents. Cucumber is one of the oldest cultivated crops, and believed to originate in the northern sub-Himalayan plains of India. The plant is a creeper (vine) akin to other members of Cucurbita family such as gourds, squashes, melons, zucchini, etc.

Cucumber is easy to grow. Varieties, varying in size, shape, and color, are cultivated all around the world under different climatic zones.

Wash thoroughly in clean water to get rid of any surface dirt and pesticide residues. Cucumber skin comes in variety of colors and often with tiny spikes that should be rubbed off easily. Do not discard the peel as it has vital minerals, phyto-chemicals, and fiber.
