We all know that lemons are one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. But, did you know that the peel and the skin are the healthiest parts of lemons? Therefore, throwing away lemon peels is not such a good idea.
These are the health benefits of this miraculous fruit:
– Prevention of asthma
– Fighting inflammation
– Detoxification of the kidneys and the liver
– Boosting the immune system
– Regulation of high blood pressure
– Elimination of harmful bacteria
– Treating depression and stress
– Fighting cancer
What’s best about this all is that lemons, unlike chemotherapy, target only the cancerous cells, and do not affect the healthy ones.
Namely, if you eat lemons together with their peel, you will get 5 to 10 times more vitamins than eating only the lemon flesh. Lemons abound in vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin A, riboflavin, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folate, potassium, magnesium, and protein. All of these nutrients make lemons extremely beneficial for health.
Lemon smoothies have a bitter taste, so the following option, to freeze them, is the one we strongly advise. Therefore, here is how to freeze lemons:
If you want to reap all the health benefits of lemons, you should eat them with their peel, and the best way to do that is to freeze them. However, before you put them into the freezer, make sure that they are very well cleaned and dried. Once they are completely frozen, take them out from the freezer.
Once you take out the lemons out of the freezer, cut off the ends of the frozen lemons so that they become flat. Then, grind them, starting from the flat side, just like you do with a piece of cheese. This will also help you prevent slipping while you shred the lemons up.
You can use them on whatever you are eating. Lemon peels will give a stronger taste to your dishes. Add some grated lemon peels to your salads, soups, yogurt, pasta sauces or homemade ice cream.
