We’ve known that the citrus deposits in lemons are good for us, but just how good can they be?
“Recent studies have proven that limonoids, natural compounds found within lemons and other fruits that contain citrus, disrupt both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This brings to importance the citrus fruits for breast cancer prevention and supports older studies that showed how eating fruit can lower your chances of getting breast cancer.”
According to Medical News Today, other benefits of the lemon are:
- Lowering Stroke chances
- Maintaining Healthy Complexion
- Prohibiting Asthma
- Boosting Iron Absorption
- Improving the Immune System
Now, to get the most out of the lemon, we use the peel as well. The simplest way is to take a lemon, put it in the freezer. Once it’s frozen grate some of it over whatever you’re eating.
Here’s another more interesting method:
Frozen Lemon Ice Cubes
If you want to get the best distribution of both the lemon and the peel, turning them into tiny ice cubes is definitely the way
Step 1. Take some lemons and blend. You could also add some water for easier blending.
Step 2. Pour the lemon mixture into an ice cube tray.
Step 3. Put it in the freezer.
These little trays make it so simple to get just the right amount of lemon for every meal. You could also add these cubes to any drink! Now that sounds delicious and nutritious. An easy and clean way to eat a SUPER food.
We recommend using the “NutriBullet” blender as it leaves no chunks of the lemon peel. This makes it much easier to eat. You will love it!
It’s easy to find ways to consume these cubes. Like earlier add it to any drink! Or dump them in your blender when you make smoothies. You can do this with any fruit that contains citrus, offering an easy way to preserve and enjoy.
If you are using another blender, the peel may not blend as well. you may want to think about how much you throw in. As for the NutriBullet, you blend it all together (seeds and peel),which is the healthiest way to consume.
