lemon water | blogmas day 5

edited302 edited303

OK so my obsession with lemon water has always been huuuuge but when it’s cold outside and sicknesses are going around, when it’s holiday season and there’s so many tempting treats ( that let’s be real, you’re not going to say ‘no’ to ), I double up my lemon water intake.

It’s super refreshing when you drink it cold, but it’s also nice if you need a warm drink AKA if it’s freezing where you live like it is for me! I like to drink a nice cold glass of lemon water in the AM and then throughout the day I’ll have one or two ( depending on if I’m home, what I’m doing, etc ). It’s also really nice to add some lemon to tea right before bed. Sooo relaxing!

Some days I use real lemons, but let’s be real. Sometimes I’m waaayy to lazy to chop up a lemon, get rid of annoying seeds ( because EW ) and then squeeze the lemon, so I’ll just use 100% lemon juice from a bottle and it does the trick too.

Besides just tasting good ( I love sour things! ), there are so many benefits to drinking lemon water.

Some include:
– it’s a blood purifier
– it helps you de-bloat <<<< holiday treats!!!
– flushes out toxins in your body
– helps balance your pectin level ( colon health… slightly TMI but totally important! )
– helps balance your pH levels
– aids in curing the common cold <<<<< pour me a glass, STAT
– strengthens the liver
– helps your skin ( helps prevent wrinkles and acne! YES PLEASE )
– helps maintain eye health ( IDK about you guys, but I’m basically blind! )
