Ex-Squeeze Me: First, My Lemon Water

Good Morning Sunshines!

I like to start my mornings with some freshly squeezed lemon juice in my water! My best friend got me hooked on using an old-school lemon juicer! I find that this method adds WAY more flavor to my water compared to just adding lemon slices.

Benefits of drinking Lemon Juice in the AM:
✅ Aids in digestion for the rest of your day
✅ Lemons contain Vitamin C: not an astonishingly high amount, somewhere around 30-50 mg per lemon
(close to your Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) which for VIT C is 60mg/day)
✅ Making the choice to drink lemon water in the AM lends itself to making healthier choices for the rest of your day!

For all my science-loving babes out there:
You may have heard that lemon juice helps balances pH Levels: There is a theory that certain foods can have an acid or alkaline affect on the body. It’s important to keep in mind that our diet only affects the pH of the urine and not the pH of the blood. So, regardless of what you eat or what your urine pH is, you can be pretty confident that your blood pH is hovering around a comfortable 7.4 (1,2).
