Superfood Spotlight: Lemons & Limes

Lemons and limes on joyfetti.com

Lemons & limes are arguably two of the most versatile, and accessible, superfoods!

 

Let’s take a look at some of their superpowers:

+ High in vitamin C (lemon > lime)

+ Good source of pectin fiber

+ Good source of folate (a B vitamin, also known as “folic acid”)

+ Reduce hunger cravings (hello, fiber!)

+ Help detoxify your body

+ Help soothe a sore throat (lemon)

Plus… They compliment and bring out the flavors in our favorite eats + sips—yum!

 

So, here are a few ways I enjoy these superfoods:

I add them to…

+ Water (hot or cold)

+ Tea

+ Fresh juice (OBSESSED with The Plant Cafe‘s “Healthy Sunrise” & “Immune Builder” juices!)

+ Homemade lemonade

+ Soup

+ Fish

+ Ceviche

+ Salsa

+ Guacamole

+ Salad

+ Quinoa

Pretty much anything, and everything😂—they’re super versatile!

 

How do you enjoy lemons & limes? If you’re thinking with a shot of tequila… Ah, you’re my kind of girl/guy! ; )
