To make sure your body is functioning optimally, you should always begin the day with a glass of warm lemon water. This drink supplies the body with the necessary nutrients. Nowadays, this morning ritual has become very popular; however, there are some people who don’t prepare the beverage in the right way. The trick is to use the rind as well!
Boil the lemon instead of squeezing it into a glass of water. Let’s take a look at the recipe now:
You will need:
- 6 lemons
- Honey, 1 tsp (optional)
- 20 oz. of water
Slice the lemons and put the slices into a pot of water and boil them for 3 minutes and then remove the pot from the stove and leave it to cool down.
Afterwards, strain the mixture and put it into a glass bottle. Every morning, pour lemon water from the bottle into a glass and add a tsp of honey for a sweeter taste. Enjoy!
