March is National Nutrition awareness month and this article is to aim towards you to build healthly traits and eating habits in hopes to bring a happy and fullfilling lifestyle. Here are some tips to consider.
Plan weekly meals ahead time, this will help from going out to eat and buying things sporadically. Make a grocery list and select healthy ingredients, that way when you prep your meals, you will have a nutritional value meal without the bad ingredients.
Now since the hot days of summer are upon us, most people will likely be dining indoors, outdoors, swimming in a pool, camping at a lake, or sitting next to an air conditioning unit and drinking some sort of ice cold beverage to stay cool and hydrated. Most people in general, will like to splurge on a beverageby drinking some high sugary drink to keep them cool however, they tend to have difficulty staying hydrated in the blazing heat. Water is a great way to stay hydrated, but if you want a change of pace, add some fresh lemons in the mix and that will give a citrus tangy zing flavor in your drink.
Lemons do have many benefits for health and contain high amounts of vitamin c and can protect the skin from free radicals to improve skin appearance and boosts your immune system to fight off colds and wards off coughs, great to use during the winter as well.
Lemons are great for the digestive tract for it can boost gastric acid secretion for a better break down for foods while in the stomach.
Having lemons can aid from having brain fog for it promotes hydration. It can aid in better mood change, overheating, constipation, reduce blood pressure, and kidney stones.
Having lemons may aid in weight loss because of the increase intake of water. Not much scientific evidence of this but most people that have at least 8 ounces of lemon water tend to be semi full before eating a meal. A great alternative than drinking sugary drinks.
Drinking a lot of lemon water can be harmful to your enamel, so please be cautious and drink with a straw to minimize the contact of fluid on your teeth. Other than that, cut a few lemons and enjoy them to the fullest. Oh almost forgot, I do have a lemon water recipe on the nutrional section, so check it out!
