I've started keeping a bottle of lemon juice in my refrigerator and another in the fridge at work. I drink way more water that way! It's also great to have around so that I can cut up fruits and keep them from oxidizing.
It's way cheaper than using fresh lemons, especially in the winter!
When you are using a lemon or lime, even an orange while cooking don't throw it out when your done! Pop the left over halves in a freezer bag and toss them in the freezer.
If your garbage disposal starts to get smelly or even if you want a fresh citrus scent in your kitchen, just throw one into the disposal and run some HOT water on the fruit to soften it out. Turn on your garbage disposal and grind the fruit! Super simple!!!474
I have been using True Lemon & Lime products for the past several years now!! They are my "Go To" products for flavoring my water every day. They are simply dehydrated lemon, or lime, with no artificial sweeteners or other ingredients. They have several other products out there that are great too. I use the True Lime for my home-made salsa and almost all of my Mexican influenced meals!! I love these products and just wanted to share them with anyone looking for a change!!!
You can purchase them at their website (truelemon.com) or at most retail grocery stores now.
