Warm Morning Lemon Water? (September Fashion Diet)


September Fashion Diet: Warm Lemon Water

Why start your morning off with Warm lemon water? 
Lemon in the morning helps to kick start our metabolism for the day, and it will improve your liver and  digestive system. In other words, it is like an text message to your body, reading: "FYI, You will lose weight today." 
Not only that, it is extremely hydrating and improves clearing the skin, and boosting your immune system.  

HOW TO MAKE LEMON WATER

- 1 cup Purified Water

-1 lemon (organic if possible)

- a spoonful of honey (optional)


 Take your purified water and warm it up. Water a bit warmer than your body temperature blends easily into our own body, and thus absorbs it better. 

Take your lemon (organic if possible) and roll it once on a flat surface with your hand. This will get the juices flowing before you cut it open. 

Squeeze half a lemon in a cup of water. Slice the other half into circular pieces, and add one slice into the cup as a nice visual touch. From there I like to add a small spoonful of orange blossom honey.


Why lemons?

Lemons contain antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers which build immunity.

Some nutritional benefits are:

  • high vitamin C
  • citric acid
  • calcium,
  • bioflavonoids
  • pectin

Enjoy!
