I recently visited a natural food/juicing bar for lunch and was pleasantly reminded how easy it is to prepare and enjoy wholesome good food, including something as simple as lemons, which were included in the fresh juice I ordered, and recommended in the restaurant’s brochure as a daily wellness beverage. (I will talk more about juicing another day…) Lemons are a great thirst quencher and better yet, have a long history of positive health benefits including as a natural body cleanser. Treat your immune system to a happy dose of lemon. Lemons provide a natural combination of vitamin C, citric acid, flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber. (I also supplement and boost my immune with a high science Vitamin C and Grape Seed extract product) Learn more about the goodness of lemons at organicfacts.net. For a refreshing morning pick me up, (instead of your usual beverage), slice a large lemon in half, juice it by hand with one of those old style glass citrus juicers, (great exercise!) and enjoy with 1c. warm water (I usually add one packet of xylitol/stevia blend sweetener, and in winter, a dash of cinnamon, or a cinnamon stick) When life gives you lemons — make the most of it!
