I have to admit… this isn’t exactly a recipe. If you want to call me out, I wouldn’t blame you. However, I am short for time this evening, I haven’t made anything noteworthy, and I wanted to share some benefits of lemon water. Hopefully by sharing the benefits, I can redeem myself.
With every meal, I drink water with freshly squeezed lemons. I do not drink soda, juices, or any other drink (with an exception to tea and coffee if I need a bit of caffeine). I never use bottled lemon juice or anything artificial. If it isn’t freshly squeezed, I won’t drink it. Call me spoiled or too picky; I don’t care. I think the flavor is amazing and I prefer natural juice.
So what’s the big deal? Why do I choose lemon water over everything else? Why did I use an entire Recipe Monday post on LEMON WATER? Well, followers, check out some of the benefits listed below! These benefits come from another fantastic blog. I wish I could take credit! If you would like to read more about lemon water and the benefits in detail, check out Tasty Yummies!
