Give'm a little squeeze...
This past week has been extremely hectic around Chateau HHL, with renovations (kitchen and family room , you may recall from previous posts) so, with Mr. G's attention being focused on the project~ my healthy eating LifeStyle has taken a bit of a detour. The lack of structure has even resulted in slacking off with my morning warm water & lemon sipping routine.
You may be thinking , OK .. don't worry tomorrow's another day. But , I'm not here to say how awful I feel for going off the LifeStyle eating, I'm here to say how wonderful! OK now that I have you totally confused, let me try to explain. Without having gone off my healthy eating LifeStyle, I would not have discovered just how important something so simple as warm lemon water can be and the huge impact it may have on your daily eating habits. What I started to notice is my system actually seems more sluggish and affected by my Meds, without kick starting my day with warm lemon water.
So, after doing a little more exploring on this beverage, I was surprised to learn:
Lemon water is considered to be one of the best alkalizing drinks available. While lemon is very acidic, it turns to alkaline ash in the body, making the entire body system more alkaline. Many alternative health experts claim that an alkaline body is healthier and that most disease happens when the body is acidic. For this reason, drinking lemon water is attributed to better overall health.
So, my friends if you are looking to change/add just one thing to your daily routine, I would say add warm water w/ a squeeze of lemon each morning before you start your day. My Nutritionist also has me adding a pinch of freshly grated ginger and ½ teaspoon raw honey to my morning warm lemon water cup. Who knew something so simple, could be so beneficial to your health.
