Juice of the Week: A Little Cuppa Lemony Orange

May 2013

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” Friedrich Nietzsche said that. “A couple who dances together, stays together.” My distant, cowboy cousin with a significant, non-ironic, handlebar mustache said that.

Drink juice daily. Dance daily.
As far as mantras go, this is a wonderful place to start!

According to this article, drinking lemon juice has a number of health benefits. The lemon’s high vitamin C content makes it a good combatant of infections and high fevers. It has also been known to relieve asthma symptoms, sore throat and tonsillitis, according to the Health Learning Info website. Lemon juice can act as a tonic for the liver and contributes to your food digestion. Santé!
