My love for Lemons
Why are Lemons so good for you?
I’m not gonna say anything new here, as lemons have been talked about, discussed and included in so many health tips and drinks.
I can tell you though, after testing it myself, that the simple Lemon Water works great. I am not talking about major weight loss or any exagerated things happening to you, but I have been constantly having Lemon with water for the past 2 plus years. At first it was a big glass of water with half a lemon squeezed and dumped into the glass. Then it slowly became an all day thing, were, whenever I am drinking water, there is lemon in it. Then came the increase of lemon in the water. I just can’t get enough!
What are the benefits of Lemon Water?
Just like other citrus fruits, it gives you your needed Vitamin C, rejuvinates your skin and heals the body. It also aids in digestion and detoxification. Now, even if one mostly eats healthy and clean foods, we still put certain foods or ingredients in us that are not so digestion friendly or have some few ‘non-natural’ or modified ingredients. Drinking Lemon Water certainly helps with all of this, as long as you are doing it consistently.
These past 10 months, I have incorporated another favorite ingredient to my lemon water. Lemon water also gives you that boost in energy and mood. Now think of doubling this, and starting to sip on it from the first thing in the morning. Green Tea. Yes, the beloved Green Tea!
Whether you prefer it hot or iced, combining Green Tea with Lemon is simpy amazing. Sipping it all through the day gives you so many benefits to your health, wellbeing, skin, hair, nails, energy, vitamins and so much more.
What I do is, I fill a mug with hot water and let the green tea bag sit in there. You can also use leaves and drain the water. In a flask, I put ice and fill half of it with water. I cut a lemon in 4 so I can squeeze most of the juice into the container and also put the entire lemon in it. Make sure to wash the lemon thoughroughly. Then pour the green tea into the mix and voila! Awesomeness in a bottle!
The more you drink the more you will want. After a few days you will also realize how clearer your pee is. That means that your body is being cleansed. Of course, let’s not forget lemons and their juice in salads and other numerous dishes, but I wanted to focus on the drink today. Whether hot or cold, with water, green tea or other teas, I highly reccomend it! It will do you good. Try it out 🙂 Time for me to gulp some more! Have a great weekend!
