One of my favorite things to do for my health recently is to drink warm lemon water every morning. I first started doing this about 6 months ago when I heard that it boosts your immune system and your metabolism. I thought it would be an easy thing to incorporate into my daily routine and I’ve been thrilled with how I feel. Every morning I juice 1 full lemon with my IKEA citrus squeezer and put it in a tall glass of luke warm water. I will warn you that some people only do a half of a lemon but I really prefer the whole thing. One morning I made this for my husband using a full lemon and he couldn’t drink it because it was so potent. Therefore, if you are just starting, maybe start with a half of a lemon and work your way up to a full one. To get the best benefits from it, they say it’s best to wait 30 minutes to eat anything so that it can work it’s magic.

Whenever I go away on vacation, like it just did for Labor Day, I get out of this habit and I instantly notice a difference. I tend to get more bloated after I eat, I sometimes pick up a little cough and I generally just don’t feel as good. This is a habit I’m going to keep around for a long time.
Let me know what you think about it.
