When life gives you lemons…. Juice them! Try this Apple-Cucumber-Kale-Lemon juice or Carrot-Ginger-Lemon-Cucumber (my personal favorite). Juicing is great for your skin, your body and it will give you an extra oomf in your day. Lemons in particular are great for cleansing (they’re alkalizing), skin (they can help with acne and eczema), cold & flu (they’re high in vitamin C and anti-bacterial) and they contain 22 anti-cancer compounds.
Tip: Buy in bulk to save money and throw them in your fruit basket for a lovely centerpiece. If they start to go bad, move them over to the refrigerator. Lemons are a fruit that you don’t have to buy organic if you can’t afford to. Thanks to their thick peel, it’s harder for pesticides to penetrate through to the fruit. Just make sure to peel your lemons before you juice them!
