P90X Day 11: Yoga X + Lemon Water


Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Yoga X: I wish I could just do the second half twice. The first half is a battle of will to make it through!

Nutrition

My favorite thing to drink is water with lemon or lime. The problem with that is always having fresh fruit or trying not to waste a whole fruit for a wedge or two. In walks "True Lemon" and "True Lime".



These are packets of crystallized lemon and lime. One packet equals one wedge. Here are the details:

* Consistent fresh lemon or lime taste without any mess, waste or inconvenience;
* 100 percent all natural ingredients including fresh lemon or lime juices and oils;
* 0 calories and 0g carbohydrates;
* No artificial or natural sweeteners;
* No preservatives or sodium; and
* Offers 25 percent of an adult’s daily Vitamin C requirements.

I absolutely LOVE these packets! They aren't just for your water either. Their website has all of these great suggestions:

• Adding to a glass of cold water (10 to 20 ounces or more)
• Adding to hot or iced tea (10 ounces or more)
• Adding to your favorite beverage or drink
• Adding to a glass or pitcher of water with your favorite sweetener for refreshing lemonade or limeade
• Sprinkling on seafood
• Using as a rub on fish, meat or chicken
• Using as a salt-substitute to help reduce sodium intake
• Sprinkling on salads and vegetables
• Sprinkling on popcorn
• Sprinkling on canned tuna or salmon
• Sprinkling on fresh berries or melon cubes
• Mixing with olive oil for a salad dressing
• Adding to garlic sauces for lemon or lime garlic
• Adding to butter or a butter substitute for lemon or lime butter
• Adding to your favorite smoothie
• Adding to Mexican food
• Adding to a non-fat whipped topping
• Combining with your favorite sweetener to easily make refreshing lemonade
• Using as a lemon or lime substitute in your favorite recipes

They've been out for about 6 months, but my stores are only just now carrying them. You can do like I did and request samples from their website:

These are perfect for someone who has trouble drinking enough water. I suck my water down even faster with lemon in it!

    That is so funny that you say that! They also make a "True Orange". My hubby said it tasted like you drank an orange soda and all you have left is the melted ice.

They have recipes on their website for cooking with their products. They come in shakers now, too, along with the little packets.

    Oh boy! I seldom eat fish, but I do love fresh water fish and I like tons of lemon on it--they never give me enough, so these will be great to keep in my purse as needed!

I don't like flavored water (tastes like I've had something good to drink and the ice melted in the glass and I'm drinking the melt--yuck!), but I can see using them for a lot of other things! I also like to cook with lemon--on chicken, in veggies, and in rice and potatoes!

    Thanks for alerting to me about this - I use lots of lemon & lime juice in my day-to-day.
