3 years after moving to our home we discovered that we had a lemon tree! Well, more like a lemon bush ... but regardless, it's a plant that grows lemons. At first I thought, "one can eat only so many lemon bars, what will I do with all these lemons?" Silly me.
First of all, there is no limit to the number of lemon bars one can eat!
Secondly, (thanks to the world wide web) I have now educated myself on the health benefits of drinking lemon water. This is a great source filled with all kinds of information. But if you want a quick "what will lemons do for me?" lesson, here are a few facts:
help cure a cold or the flu
cleanse your body of impurities
Ah, yes ... the list goes on and on.
My daughter saw Martha Stewart share her morning ritual of drinking a large mug of hot water with the juice of a whole organic lemon. So I thought, "what the heck - if Martha suggests it, I'll try it"
So the moral is:
Lemons, not just for lemon bars anymore.
