Cheerfully yellow, this small but powerful fruit incarnates sunshine and emanates optimism. Lemon is perfect for preparing refreshing summer drinks but we can benefit from it even more now, during the fall season when we tend to lack vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent source of vitamins C and B, phosphorus and also flavonoids known for theirs cancer fighting and antibiotic effects. So when life gives you lemons, don’t make a sour face. Just squeeze all the juice out of them! Boil a cup of water with a cup of sugar, mix well with the juice and add few cups of mineral water, cool and voilà! Lemonade!
Feeling thirsty? There is nothing more revitalizing than real lemonade with fresh slices of lemon. With the temperatures still close to 90F (32C) here, it’s been my favorite drink to quench my thirst on a hot summer day like this.
