lemons

This may save your life or the life of a friend or loved one. The more you read, the more you want to know… it’s not long, so read it. It’s amazing!

 

Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

 
Simply place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need  to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.

 

Sprinkle it on your vegetables, ​​a salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi,  fish dishes, whisky… the list is endless!

 
All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before.  Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C – Not anymore!

 

Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup​-o-noodles.

 
What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

 
Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.

 

But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

 
It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

 
So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret!  Better late than never, right?

 

The surprising benefits of lemon:

 

Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It  is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.

 

You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.

 

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets,  pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.

 

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

 
The source of  this information is fascinating: it comes from  one of the largest drug manufacturers in the  world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that it destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers,  including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas…

 

The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

 
And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

 
So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your whole body will love you for it!!!!!

 

Thanks to My Mother for sending this information to me so I could pass it on for others.

Refrigerate for several hours (up to 6 hours) turning it over occasionally.

6 Best Summer Vegetables for Weight Loss

fresh-vegetables

 

It just got a whole lot easier to lose weight this summer if you know what to buy.

But Farmers’ Market prices can often be two or three times what you’ll pay the grocery store.

Are the prices worth it? YES…..ONLY if you’re buying the right vegetables like the ones packed with

Nutrients….. Like Folate, Resveratrol and Betaine which have been shown to REDUCE your body’s ability to

store belly fat. Invest in the right vegetables, and you’ll reap speedy weight loss returns.

1.) ARUGULA

Peak Season: (March to November)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: Like other leafy greens, arugula is high in the B vitamin folate, which has been

shown to deactivate the genes responsible for fat storage. They’re also high in Vitamin K, which may

improve insulin sensitivity, offering protection against diabetes.

Perfect Pick: The smaller the leaf, the less pungent its bite. Look for emerald green leaves that are not

yellowing or limp.

Handle with Care: Enclose roots in a damp paper towel and place the leaves in a plastic bag. Store in the

fridge for 2 to 3 days.

2.) BEETS

Peak Season: (June to October)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: Betaine, a micronutrient that turns off the genes responsible for belly fat and

insulin resistance, gets its name from beets. The roots are filled with nitrate, which may help lower blood

pressure, and the greens are one of the best sources of folate (and more nutrient-dense than kale or

spinach!). And they’re high in fiber, which fills you up for hours.

Perfect Pick: Find beets with a smooth, deep-red surface that’s unyielding when pressed. Smaller roots are

sweeter and more tender. Attached greens should be deep green and not withered.

Handle with Care: Remove the leaves (which are great sautéed in olive oil) and store in a plastic bag in

the fridge for no more than 2 days. The beets will last in the crisper for up to 2 weeks.

of Zero Belly Diet.

3.) RED BELL PEPPERS

Peak Season: (July to December)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: Don’t waste your green on green peppers. Red peppers—which have been allowed to

ripen on the vine—have nearly three times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges. The high levels of

antioxidants give peppers the power to fight obesity-causing inflammation in the body.

Perfect Pick: Lots of heft for their size with a brightly colored, wrinkle-free exterior. The stems should

be a lively green.

Handle with Care: Refrigerate in the crisper for up to 2 weeks.

4.) GRAPE TOMATOES

Peak Season: (May to August)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: They’re about 94 percent water and low in calories. Note: the primary source of

nutrients from tomatoes—such as lycopene, an antioxidant that lends your skin a healthy glow—are found in

the deep red skins, so grape tomatoes are a better nutritional bargain than beefsteak.

Perfect Pick: Look for heavy tomatoes that are rich in color and free of wrinkles, cracks, or bruises. They

should have some give, unlike the rock-solid ones bred for transport. Too soft, though, and the tomato is

likely overripe.

Handle with Care: Never store tomatoes in the fridge; the cool temps destroy flavor and texture. Keep them

at room temperature out of direct sunlight for up to 1 week.

Turbocharge the Weight Loss: Discover more ways that fresh foods can lead to a flat belly—quickly, in time

for peak beach season—with these 8 Easy Strategies for Rapid Weight Loss!

5.) GREEN BEANS

Peak Season: (April to October)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: Low-cal and fat free, green beans are also high in belly-filling fiber—and are an

excellent source of iron.

Perfect Pick: Find ones with a vibrant, smooth surface without any visible withering. They should “snap”

when gently bent and appear moist on the inside.

Handle with Care: Refrigerate, unwashed, in an unsealed bag for up to 1 week.

6.) ZUCCHINI

Peak Season: (June to August)

Why You’ll Lose Weight: They’re packed with riboflavin, a B vitamin needed for red blood cell production

and for converting carbohydrates to energy. That means you burn off your Frappucino faster!

Perfect Pick: Purchase heavy, tender zucchini with unblemished deep-green skins that are adorned with faint

gold specks or strips. Smaller zucchini are sweeter and more flavorful.

Handle with Care: Refrigerate in the crisper in a plastic bag for up to 5 days.
