Crazy for lemon water
My neighbors tree is full of these beauties! Big, yellow, California lemons. Remember the dizzy coconut juice post a couple weeks ago? (click HERE) I’ve been on a little quest to replenish electrolytes and get more sodium in my system. Lemonade’s got a few hidden secrets. It’s got some minerals, but even better, the vitamin C helps your body absorb iron and also aids your liver with it’s detox. I use lemon water a lot, especially when I’m feeling bloated and sluggish I add it to hot water with honey, but I never knew why. Ha!! Doctor stupid actually does a lot of things without really knowing why. I’m more like doctor impulsive!!! Well, anyway…that’s why. Because the liver loves it!! Ok, so go make some lemonade! A liver lover, not a fighter!
- Juice 2 lemons and 2 limes
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (leave this out if you aren’t trying to replenish sodium)
- 1 liter of water
- Agave nectar to sweeten things up
That’s all! Stir it, drink it!
