Lemon For Your Health
Many of us have read about the benefits of drinking warm lemon water. If you drink it first thing in the morning and wait 15-30 minutes to have breakfast (you are eating breakfast, aren’t you?!), you will enjoy benefits such as; a boosted immune system, improved digestion, a balanced pH and more. I like to add fresh ginger, and in another blog I will share my favorite after-dinner drink recipe – an Italian digestive with lemon, ginger, mint and more, plus a gift idea!
I love the way Ashley Dentino has simply described the benefits of starting the day with warm lemon water in this article from MindBodyGreen.
I highly recommend Lemon Pods (photo above) for storing the cut lemon in your refrigerator. One pod also serves as a dip container! Many of my friends have been the recipient of the lemon pod with a printout of this article – a simple, thoughtful gift for under $3.00! You can also find the lemon pods here on Amazon for $5.65. At almost double the price, though, it's worth a trip to Marshalls or TJ Maxx!
Cheers to your health!
