Im not quite sure what I would do without lemons, I buy them by the bag full. They are a staple in my diet and I always have them in a bowl somewhere in the house. ( usually not in the kitchen as they are quite nice to look at.)
Lately I have been using them in and on everything. No really, everything. A recent trip to the doctor put some things into perspective and I need to cut back on my sodium and caffeine. ( Two of my absolute favorite things! What will I do!?) I am a very healthy guy. I eat great, I’m not over weight, I drink plenty of water. I just have high blood pressure and always have. They dont know why, they dont know how, but they say I gotta get it down. So in my efforts to consume less sodium I have been squeezing a little lemon juice over what ever I am eating in place of table salt. Honestly, it works great, sometimes better than salt itself. Give it shot, you’ll be surprised.
A solution for less caffeine is another story… I love me some coffee in the morning. Maybe I’ll cut back to just one cup…maybe.
In other news, the weather was awesome this past weekend. You know the weather that literally drags you outside. The kind that makes you forget you own a TV or computer. We spent all day out on the back deck, had friends over, ate a HUGE meal cooked almost entirely on the grill, and then sat with drinks until late in the evening. If only everyday was like that.
Have a good one…
