Lemon Zest from Frozen Lemons Gives
Amazing Health Benefits
What is lemon zest? Lemon Zest is the grated yellow rind of the lemon. The easiest way to us lemon zest it is to freeze the lemon first. Then grate up the whole lemon whenever you have something you could add some to.
Many professionals in good quality restaurants are using the entire lemon in creating healthy meals. They place the washed lemon in the freezer section of the fridge. Once the lemon is frozen, the lemon is grated with a grater and the whole lemon, zest and all, is added to the meal.
Sprinkle it on everything – salads, vegetables, main meals, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, everything. (Non-GMO and wheat free meals of course).
All of the foods will have a wonderful flavor.
Personally, I find it easier to do the the same without freezing the lemon. Put FRESH lemon juice on your salads and taste the difference compared to the lemon juice in plastic containers.
While some sites have claimed that lemon peel “is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy” I have not been able to find a reference for this. (Although since chemotherapy is so very bad for people, almost anything would be a good alternative).
However, there are obviously wonderful health benefits to eating whole lemons. The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods says:
“Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C. In addition, they are a good source of vitamin B6, potassium, folic acid, flavonoids, and the important phytochemical limonene. A 3½-ounce (100 gram) serving is about 2 medium lemons and provides 29 calories, 1.1 grams of protein, 0.3 grams of fat, and 9.3 grams of carbohydrate, with 2.8 grams of fiber and 2.5 grams of natural sugars.
The phytochemical limonene, which is extracted from lemons, is currently being used in clinical trials to dissolve gallstones and is showing extremely promising anticancer activities.”
“Citrus flavonoids have potential antioxidant (which prevents aging), anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-inflammatory activities, effects on capillarity, and cholesterol-lowering ability.”
Try a drink of hot water with raw (non-GMO) honey and raw lemon juice.
As with the health benefits of all fruits and vegetables, the health benefits of lemons will be obtained only, or at least mainly, from ingesting them raw. All studies were done on raw lemons, not on cooked lemons. So forget about the bottled lemon juice from stores.
Adding lemon zest to your meals will add health and taste. However, always remember that there is no ‘magic pill’. There is no single good food, let alone supplement, which will give you perfect health and wellbeing for life.
What is needed is a diet and lifestyle makeover, and that cannot be covered in one article. Even if you think you ‘eat healthy’, there are toxins hidden in what you eat, because that is what fuels the $2 trillion given to the Medical Mafia in the USA each year. That’s five times the defense budget. Most of the pain, disease and suffering of people is totally unnecessary.
That is why I spent two years writing You’re not fat, You’re toxic, which summarizes 43+ health books and documentaries, saving you the time of reading them as well as the $500+ it would cost to purchase them. There’s also a whole lot of other information which you need to know. It’s for skinny people, not just those who want to lose weight. If you want to check it out before purchasing, please ask your library to obtain a copy.
