Lemons are known to be the healthiest fruit on the planet, but what most people don’t know Is that their peel and skin are actually the healthiest parts. In order to reap all of these beneficial effects, the lemons should be consumed with their peel. That’s why you should never throw away the peel, but rather consume it.
When you eat the lemons together with the peel, you get 5 to 10 times more vitamins than eating only the lemon flesh. Lemons are rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin A, riboflavin, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folate, potassium, magnesium, and protein.
The best way to get all the health benefits from the lemon peel is to freeze the lemon after you wash it thoroughly.
Let them freeze completely, take out from the freezer and then cut off one of the ends of the fruit. You can add it in salads, soups, yogurt, pasta sauces or homemade ice cream. You can also add a tbsp of grated lemon to your tea, juice, smoothie or baked goods. There are millions of ways to use this technique, trust your imagination!
Have a nice day and feel the difference in your body!
