Start Your Day With One-Sixth of A Lemon
The benefits are there and waiting....
Start your day right with a simple change at low cost...
In a book from the 1920's-early '30's entitled Youth At Seventy I note that, when a medical doctor was asked to come up with a healthy menu for a week's worth of meals, each day started with a glass of hot water and the juice of half a lemon."
My wife's grandfather taught her the value of having one-sixth of a lemon (minus seeds) peel and all first thing every day. He lived to be strong and healthy even at well over 100 years old.
This is a consistent belief which has carried through to today for the fiber, Vit. C, bioflavonoids, lemon oil, etc. and all the good effects of those and other elements of a ripe lemon.
While at first hard to become accustomed to (even the idea) it grows on you and in a very short time you will find your body craving it.
If a slow approach to the regimen seems to help, try cutting up that sixth of a lemon and adding the lemon chunks to a cup of your favorite hot herbal tea (Corn Silk Tea perhaps) and eating the lemon chunks which remain.
The ancients said there is a reason ripe lemons are yellow. To them it was a sign that lemons are as important to life as the sun is.
You too can have a new flare (pun intended) for healthy living, and it will cost you pennies to try.
A fully ripe lemon has a quite smooth and shiney peel.
Just remember, when you have selected those truly ripe ones for your shopping cart, all you have left for anyone else are the lemons!
