L is for Lemon – Day #12


Lemon by Food Matters TV

Lemon sip. Ugh. Lemonade. Mmmm. Lemon themed desert. Yum!

Nothing else says Spring like lemons! πŸ˜‰

Remember way back in 2009 when Masterchef Julie Goodwin made her Lemon Diva cupcakes? Since then I’ve always been in awe of lemons. The citrusy smell. How it was so versatile for sweets or savoury. To the immune and cold fighting properties πŸ˜‰

Fun facts about lemons

πŸ˜‰ They’re a cross breed of citron (yes I’ve checked and it’s a real fruit- an Asian fruit that looks like large lemons) and lime!

πŸ˜‰ Thanks to our friends in United States, Italy, Spain, Greece, Israel and Turkey as the main growers!

πŸ˜‰ There’s no end to the cancer fighting list of fruit and veg which lemon is on!

Extra bonus fun fact πŸ˜‰ they contain flavonol glycosides which get this- stops cancer cells from spreading!

So while lemon sip doesn’t taste as great, the true lemon is a hero.

Once again thanks to the World’s Healthiest Foods for the info!
