    FOOD OF THE WEEK – LEMONS


    What’s your favorite healthy lemon dish? Lemon chicken … lemon-garlic fish … or maybe a lemon-based dressing drizzled over quinoa and veggies?


    So good! It doesn’t just taste delicious. Lemons contain a LONG list of nutritional benefits thanks to its antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals!


    Lemons can help boost your immune system, ease your digestive system, and they even contain anti-cancer compounds.


    Plus, they are good for heart health, may help prevent stroke, can lower blood pressure, and they may contain compounds that help control your weight.


    ✅ One way to get more lemon in your life is to drink infused water every morning! To make it, simply squeeze a couple of tablespoons of fresh lemon into a glass of water (warm or cold, your choice!).


    You can also drizzle lemon on your veggies and salads.

    "To get more lemons in your life" or "To get rid of excess lemons in your life"?

    Drink (lemon) infused water ? In the west we get the same advice. When life offers you lemons, you make lemonade.

    Good luck with your lemons.

    Thanks for the hacks on lemon.
    My mom used to serve me this drink every day in summer vacation before sun reaches its zenith. The lemons ripe ones just plucked from gardens. She taught me to drink it with out my lips touching the brim of the tumbler (not glass).

    Regular timing of the drink helps to remove sloth ( lactic acid) balanced mind good skin tone, maintain body pH,.

    Raw Lemon juice on direct contact can damage the precious enamel of the tooth.
    As a drink in warm water it is good if taken for a month for feeling the freedom from chronic stomach problems.

    The skin of lemon contains very valuable compounds and minerals and therefore a pickle made out of out of it taken with curd bath is always heavenly.
    It is said some life saying drugs do contain the dry powder made out of dried lemon peel.

    When one gets more lemon, besides for own health it can be used in other ways. After extracting juice the cut pieces invariably put in pressure cookerwith water and after boiling one finds inside sparkling and scales removed. For other cleaning uses,

    Yes! Anything tangy like tamarind also has a great cleaning ability! Thanks for sharing.
