When I find a new blog that I love, I usually start at the very beginning of their posts and go through them until I reach the most recent one.
That's what I recently did with Chelsea Notes. Love-love-love her blog.
I stumbled onto this post she did on lemon water.
I have seen Catalina Su drink lemon water and recommend it to her readers but I never knew why she was drinking it.
Chelsea wrote that she noticed a little weight loss, clearer skin tone, helped her digestion, and increased her overall feeling of health.
Sounds like a winner to me!
I've been trying it this week and have loved it so far. It's a super easy and healthy way to start your day.
I usually don't eat breakfast. I'll make a midday smoothie and hope I can last until dinner without getting sick (you need to always have food in your stomach post gallbladder removal - just a tip!)
or inhaling some awful, unhealthy snack that makes me hate myself.
So now I'm trying to drink my lemon water and eat breakfast, small snacks, healthy lunch, and dinner.
Chelsea recommends adding a lemon wedge to a microwave safe mug, filling it with water, microwaving it for a minute and half-ish, and enjoy!
Here's is another great post from La Jolla Mom on the benefits of drinking lemon water in the morning.
It's a list so it's easy to read. I seriously recommend it.
There are tons of articles on the benefits of lemon water so just google it if you want to know more.
I'm really enjoying my daily lemon water and think it will become a normal part of morning routine/
