Lemon Water Benefits

Monday, August 05, 2013

I drink warm lemon water every morning upon waking. I posted a link yesterday on facebook about freezing lemon peels to use later in salads, drinks, desserts etc and mentioned about how I have plenty of lemon peels due to my morning ritual. Someone asked me what warm lemon water did for me? Hmmm, well I knew it aids in digestion, supposed to help skin..and I had always heard it was a good start to your day, almost any detox program etc tells you to drink I did find this article with 10 reasons to drink warm lemon water in the mornings and figured I would share..and in it she does reference freezing the rinds as well :)

So go out and buy some lemons..I know when we get a house of our own, I WILL own a lemon tree!!! emoticon

    The tittle made me smile because it reminded me of when one of my boys first noticed me drinking lemon water and before tasting it himself he ask "is there benefits to it?" Too cute. Thanks for sharing and for reminding me of the memory ; )

    Glad to help, I have also read where adding honey and cinnamon to warm water before meals helps with weight loss, so not sure if you added all 3 for a pre-breakfast drink if that would be beneficial or not!
Have a great day!

    I have not done this for years (and I am much larger than I used to be)
May be time to revisit it myself regularly from tomorrow and see how I go.

Thank you for sharing - good prompt
