Hit List-Lemons

FullSizeRenderFrom protecting your immune system and boosting your energy and mood plus providing important vitamins, nutrients and cancer-fighting antioxidants and safely ridding your body of toxins, drinking lemon water has a positive effect on everything from your insides out!

We know some pretty amazing people, including this spectacular woman below, Gogo, who lived well until 102 and swore by a warm glass of lemon water each morning (plus a scotch every day at 5pm).  In keeping with her philosophy to stick to the basics, we offer:

Gogo’s Lemon Water

  • 8 ounces of warm water
  • juice of one organic lemon

Juice lemon into a glass of warm water and drink first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.

During a season that can sometimes be filled with over indulgence, stress or too much merriment, starting each day with a glass of warm lemon water, is possibly the easiest habit to adopt and the only one you won’t have to break in the new year.

You can read more about the specific health benefits if you have time-otherwise, trust that 102 years of LIVING WELL is enough to get you started.

  1. You know that I am a BIG believer in lemon water – every day! For the kids, I add a little honey. And if I’m getting sick, I add honey and Cognac right before bed.
