Lemons contain so many health benefits and citrus added to anything truly enhances the accompanying flavor components! So we thought we would create something that tastes super yummy while having a variety of advantages for your overall health.

Feel free to have it as is, add it to your meal plan or take it home and dress it up with a little dab of our protein peanut butter to get a bit of extra protein in every bite! One of our favorite ways to have it is by utilizing out ‘create your plate’ and adding fruit salad and some yogurt along with it!

We love it on its own and it has become our favorite afternoon treat or having it as a quick nibble before or after a workout! 

In light of our newest creation, we wanted to share five fun facts about lemons that you may not know:

1. Ancient Origins: Lemons have a long and fascinating history. They are believed to have originated in Southeast Asia, specifically in the region encompassing India, Myanmar, and China. Lemons were introduced to the Mediterranean region by Arab traders around the 10th century.

2. Nutritional Powerhouse: Despite their small size, lemons pack a nutritional punch. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, providing over 50% of the recommended daily intake in just one lemon. Lemons also contain fiber, potassium, and small amounts of other essential vitamins and minerals.

3. Versatile Culinary Ingredient: Lemons are a staple in kitchens around the world due to their versatility. They add a refreshing tang to both sweet and savory dishes. Lemon juice is commonly used as a natural flavor enhancer, salad dressing ingredient, and marinade base. The zest of lemon peel is also prized for its aromatic qualities and is often used to add a burst of flavor to various recipes.

4. Health Benefits: Lemons offer numerous health benefits. The high vitamin C content in lemons is known to boost the immune system and promote collagen production, which is essential for healthy skin. Lemon water is a popular beverage choice due to its potential detoxifying effects and ability to aid digestion. Additionally, lemons are believed to have antibacterial properties and can help freshen breath.

5. Non-Culinary Uses: Lemons have a range of non-culinary uses that may surprise you. The acidic nature of lemon juice makes it an effective natural cleaner. It can be used to remove stains, freshen cutting boards, and even brighten white clothes. Lemon oil, extracted from the peel, is commonly used in aromatherapy for its uplifting and invigorating scent.

Lemons are not only a delicious and versatile fruit but also offer a range of health benefits and non-culinary uses like we discussed. From their ancient origins to their nutritional powerhouse status, lemons continue to be a beloved ingredient in kitchens worldwide.
