When Life Gives You Lemons, Add Them To Your Water!

It’s almost the end of January… are you still sticking to your new year’s resolutions? If they have fallen by the wayside, here’s a healthy tip to kick start your motivations. Nutritionist Samantha Ushedo recently visited St. Clement’s School to share her 8 Habits of Healthy, Happy People with our Grade 11’s. A simple, easy to follow tip that especially resonated with the girls: incorporate a lemon into your rise and shine routine!

Benefits to picking up (and squeezing out) a lovely yellow lemon daily include:

  • lose-up-to-5-pounds-a-week-just-by-drinking-this-amazing-drinkAiding in digestion
  • Detoxifying  your body by enhancing enzyme function
  • Preventing sickness and boosting your immune system
  • Keeping you hydrated

Stirring a little citrus in your H20 is a good-for-you trick that is also pretty effortless. As one of our girls noted with great self-awareness, “I will NOT run! I do not enjoy running and I will not feel bad about it. I will, however, drink lemon water!”

On top of these more obvious benefits, it may surprise you to know that drinking lemon water every morning can freshen your breath, keep your skin blemish-free, reduce inflammation, and give you a non-caffeinated energy boost!
