Lemon is my new friend
A long time ago in a country far far away…..
After a long flight from Moscow to San Francisco, we have arrived to “our” new house in San Anselmo California . Looked around with great excitement and noticed something straight away.
Vow !!! We have a huge lemon tree
I love lemonade and the first time in my life instead of going to the shop to buy some, I just opened our door and grabbed one from the tree. Smelled it, cut it to half and gently squeezed it into my glass. Dropped a few ice cubes in it and ……
Oh It was so different. Intense,silky fragrance and taste. I instantly became addicted to it. Strangely the same day came across an article on facebook about which advised to start the day with a glass of fresh lemon juice.
Well I do just like that every morning since. You might ask : “alright and how is it affecting you?” “Do you feel any benefits?”
I must say it has made a big difference for me. I feel fresher in the morning (it was not the case before), have better digestion,I am not an expert but I think it had an effect on my skin quality. Overall I feel much better.
