5 Ways to Add Lemon to Your Diet

Lemons are acidic to the taste, but did you know they’re actually alkaline-forming in the body? In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming foods you can eat! They are also detoxifiers, helping to flush out toxins by stimulating natural enzymes. The nutritional profile of lemons can’t be beat, with just one lemon offering a third of your daily Vitamin C intake and a great deal of potassium and calcium. We know that this somewhat sour superfood can sometimes be difficult to work into your daily diet, so here are a few suggestions:

the five different ways to add a lemon to your diet and food

1. Hot water or teaUsing lemons mixed in water first thing in the morning provides the body with a good dose of detoxifying power! The lemon juice will work with the liver to help you get rid of the bad stuff. Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to give your metabolism an awesome jump start.

2. Salad Dressing: Mix lemon juice with your favorite salad dressing to give it added flavor

3. Veggie Marinade

4. Fish Marinade

5. Dessert Ingredient: Lemon bars, anyone?
