Lemons

Sometimes life gives you lemons. And sometimes a surprise comes with your lemons. A month or so ago I picked up a bag of lemons, probably at Costco or HEB. Tucked in the Sunkist sack was a robinet pour citron. Fancy, huh?

This tiny yellow faucet easily twists into the stem end of a lemon and with a squeeze you have fresh juice.

Can you stand the excitement?

Here’s the twist. I like to drink hot lemon water. Quirky, I know, but it works for me. Pre robinet pour citron, I would slice a lemon in half, attempt to flick out the seeds, squeeze the lemon into my favorite mug, and generally ignore the citrusy juice running elbow-bound down my arm. Clearly life has changed for the better since the robinet pour citron.

Why am I so passionate about lemon water? Because of it’s many health benefits, of course. Lemon juice is rich in several essential nutrients like potassium, calcium, and magnesium. And, it’s loaded with Vitamin C and antioxidants which provide a definite boost to your immune system. Lemon water is known for its gentle cleansing properties and aids in flushing unwanted toxins from your system. It boots your metabolism and helps regulate other digestive functions like heartburn, nausea and indigestion.

So, keep your eyes peeled for your very own robinet pour citron. In the meantime, slice a lemon and enjoy it in a warm cup of water for your health.

A Votre Sante!
