The Reason You Should ALWAYS Freeze Your Lemons!

Getting the most out of your fruit and veggies is always important! After all, there is literally nothing more important than your general health and diet. When you buy some lemons from the store, what do you usually do with them?

Most people pop them in the fruit bowl or even in the fridge. If you want to get more out of your fruit, though, you might want to try this very simple trick. Once you try this, we promise you will NEVER go back. It’s absolutely genius.

All you need to do is cut them into slices, slip them in a freezer bag and (you guessed it) freeze them!

It might sound a little bizarre right now, but when you try it, you will understand why SO many people are doing this now.

You see, we all know that lemons are good for us – they are full of important vitamins that we so desperately need. What most of us don’t know, though, is that most of these vitamins are actually trapped in the skin of the fruit. That means that when you eat a lemon, you usually lose most of the health benefits you would otherwise get.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll eat lemons by the bag full. It is crazy to think that all this time we’ve been missing out on the vitamins we needed all along.

So, why does freezing the lemon slices make any difference? Well, when lemons are fresh, the skin tastes kind of disgusting on its own. After all, it’s a weird texture and doesn’t have much flavor, right?

When you eat a frozen slice of lemon, though, you will see that the entire thing is packed full of delicious citrus flavor! You don’t even notice that you’re eating the skin as well when you bite into these tasty snacks.

So, what vitamins and minerals you are getting?

  • Vitamin C, B6, A, and E
  • Folate,
  • Calcium
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Protein
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Thiamin
  • Phosphorus

Woah – that’s a pretty long list, huh? Why on earth would you want to miss out on all that goodness? Aside from that, the citric acid in this fruit helps you fight bacteria and viruses. Some studies suggest that these vitamins and minerals help people fend of the big C too! In short, there are about a million reasons you should be eating the skin of your lemons, AND freezing them is the best way to do so!
