Health Notes from Dr. Liz

Feels like a touch of summer is here when you liven up a dish with fresh lemon juice or zest. Behind lemon’s tangy reputation is a wealth of health benefits, which just might have you enjoying a little “summer” all winter long.

Uses:

Put lemon’s powers to work and add a whole (rinsed) lemon (skin and all) into a smoothie; use the juice of a lemon and zest mixed into hot water as a soothing healing drink; and add lemon juice/zest to your favorite drinks, salads, soups and even stews for healthy freshness.
