photo cred Cat Forget Pepsi - this lemonade is the choice of the new generation (oh yes, I'm well aware that I just dated myself). Regardless, here's what you need: 1 glass of water (preferably room temp so it's not such a shock to your body first thing) 1/2 lemon, juiced 10 drops, liquid stevia (optional & fyi, bought it at Bulkbarn) Stir it all up and drink it down.  Have this first thing in the morning, ideally at least 15 minutes before you have your breakfast. My little one joins me every morning with this lovely A.M. ritual. Now are you ready for this?  Check out all the awesome benefits of lemon water... It helps fight colds, stimulates brain function, balances overall body pH, reduces hunger pains, flushes out all the crap in your body, french-kisses your liver which helps digestion, helps with no. 1 & no. 2 so you rid your body of toxins faster, freshens your breath and even gives you a boost of Vit C which helps your skin and helps you find your happy place. I mean c'mon. p.s. Remember to wash your lemons before you cut them. In fact, make it a rule to wash all fruit and veg before you eat/slice 'em regardless of if you eat the skin or not.
