Lemon Water


I have a lot of Lemon Love. It has vitamin c, boosts your immune system, detoxifies your liver and aids in digestion. Boom.

I've been drinking warm lemon water in the morning. Just water, the juice of half a lemon and a straw. (Gotta save those pearly whites.)

Antioxidants. And it my makes the kitchen smells awesome.

  1. how ironic- I just heard about doing this when you throat hurts. But I heard to do hot water, lemon and local honey. They said something about the local honey helping your throat...? I don't know. Regardless, I need to drink more water and this just may be the solution! xo

  5. Hooray for lemons! If you squeeze lemon into green tea, the antioxidants in the tea are absorbed more efficiently. For the lovebirds - local honey can help assimilate your body to local flora. This helps a lot of people with their allergies :).

  8. such a good idea- especially since it makes your kitchen smell so good too. you are so smart :)

    also, i got your comment on my blog about the volleyball tournament, and YES! ha they definitely all do have a uniform, even when not playing in their uniforms. you can definitely spot a v-ball player, especially a whole convention center full of them. ha.

    i love your blog. so simple and pretty. oh and a little thought: you should link your e-mail to your blogger profile so that when you leave comments in the future, i can just reply to them by e-mail :)

  10. Fact: when I go to restaurants, I make sure to ask for no lemon. I don't know why, but I REALLY don't like lemon water... Oh well, I know it's good for me, so I try to drink it every once and a while.

  14. That sounds really good! My mom just bought one of those lemon juicer things at Marshalls the other day, maybe I should get her to pick one up for me, too!

  15. i was also doing this... then it got tough because i went on a super early work-out schedule for a while. i'm starting it up again though!

    (you know, my son actually brought up the fact that the acidity in this is not good for your teeth... i never even though of this(!)... think i'll drink it with a straw too)

  16. I've totally jumped on this train, too! But I never even thought of using a straw...thanks for the tip :)

  18. Yes lemons are great for the liver indeed and this is what I need to remind myself ! But I could never kick my coffee in a morning. Also be aware that too much lemon might not be good for your teeth in the long run. Oh I see someone else mentions it. Yeah well I found out the wrong way. When I went raw vegan and ate too much fruit I lost part of my tooth and swear that it was the fruits and the lemon water ... now I don't eat so much as I have never had problems with my teeth. x

  19. I went through a lemon phase last summer during a heatwave and it was all I wanted! Have you tried Meyer Lemon? they're a little smaller and sweet - such a treat.
