Would you like a lemon for your water?
I admit, I am not much on lemons in my water. I sure don't want them in my Southern Sweet Tea. However, after doing some research regarding lemon water, I think I will start saying yes when the server asks this question from now on.
Did you know?
That lemon water may aid digestion and boost immunity. Research has shown that lemon water will not only help with digestive issues, but will also help boost your immunity. That good ole' Vitamin C that is found in lemons is the key.
My husband recently had a bad spout with some kidney stones. Did you know that drinking lemon water will help reduce the risk of these bad boys. Research shows that drinking just half a cup of lemon water (juice of just two lemons) every day can increase urinary citrate excretion and cut the risk of kidney stones.
Lemon water is rich in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. A cup (244 grams) of lemon water (juice) contains 94.4 milligrams of vitamin C, which is more than the recommended daily dose. Vitamin C intake has also been linked to a lower risk of respiratory and systemic infections. Your grandmother was correct in telling you to drink some warm lemon water for your colds & coughs.
Start drinking lemon water and give up those sugary and diet sodas. This will help in the aid of weight loss. I am not big on drinking water. However, I am beginning to love it with a little lemon and some fresh mint. Replacing high-calorie beverages with lemon water could be a good idea to boost your health and even keep away from additional calories. The lemon and mint together will help keep your breath smelling great as well!
Vitamin C intake has also been linked to a lower risk of respiratory and systemic infections. Lemon juice also will help combat stress. Vitamin C has been shown to provide benefits to the skin. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your complexion. So keep drinking all the HZO you can and add the lemon (filled with Vitamin C) will give you that extra boost to hydrating your skin.
Yes ladies, lemon water will help to increase your urine production.This will help get rid of the extra bloating, as well as, help flush out toxins in your body, cleanse the liver, and improve your digestion. Increasing water content inside the gut can help soften stools and stimulate bowel movements. Thus, getting rid of the bloating. Mild dehydration can cause constipation. Increasing water intake may help relieve constipation. Drinking a mixture of lemon and water helps relieve constipation in most people.
Too much of anything is a bad thing, even when it comes to lemon water. Too much of it can upset your stomach. Also, if you are experiencing problems with GERD, or have ulcers, you need to consult with your physician.

In 2018 report, 62% of the Americans bought their gifts a week before Christmas. In United Kingdom and United States combined, over $2 trillion dollars were spent on the same year for the said holidays. A larger portion of the expenditure are bought for presents, while the remaining are spent for Christmas decorations, food, and travels.
The holiday season kindles our passion to give. After all, the whole occasion is filled with the spirit of love and giving. For many, it is not just a chore they do to fulfill a routine. It is more of their heart’s desire to express sincerity. This is one of the reasons why many allot budget for buying gifts. However, in spite of having the passion, many still find it hard to choose the best present, especially if going zero waste.
Zero Waste Gifts: Are They Possible? For the growing number of zero waste lifestyle advocates, Christmas is both a challenge and an opportunity to give back to nature. After all, Mother Earth did pretty amazing job of stretching its hands of sharing its bounty to its settlers. She gave move than enough of what we needed. There is a dilemma, though. Going zero waste is already tacky on its own. Adding concerns on gift ideas to the equation, it makes the whole task even more complicated. The good news is, complicated does not necessarily mean impossible.
To shed some light, the goal of zero waste is to lessen, if not eliminate, unnecessary trash. That includes use of too much wrappers, plastics, and products with one-time use. It is a little inconvenient to pull off since majority of the industries do not practice zero waste, but it is always doable.
This is also true in looking for zero waste gifts ideas. Zero waste gifts, as defined, are “handmade, homemade, secondhand or items that help someone refuse and reduce disposable or plastic waste.” So when you upcycle things from your old stuff into something new and beautiful to give it to someone, you already have a zero waste gift. If not create your own, you may buy items for someone from a zero waste store, which is basically just the same thing.
So, may it be an item crafted from your hands or bought to serve many purposes without necessarily having too much packaging, that is a zero waste gift.

The name of my Blog is Sweet Yellow Cornbread. I love me some sweet yellow cornbread, as does my family. However, I am a fan of buttermilk cornbread. My family and co-worker's love the jalapeno cornbread muffins. I added cheese to this mix to give it a cheesy flavor.
