One of my absolute favorite grocery stores is Trader Joe’s. I love that store. Every time I shop there, I end up purchasing new favorites. I always go back, buy our favorites plus new items to try. Soon, I will dedicate a whole post to our TJ’s favorites, but for now I want to share this new favorite: the Freeze Dried Strawberries. These babies are unsweetened and unsulfured, they are low in sugar and carbs, and contain fiber. They make a perfect snack and can be used with yogurt and on top of your cereal. I love them because they aren’t too sweet, actually, they are a bit soury lemony sweet. My perfect combo!

I love you Trader Joe’s!

Lemon Diet?

Seriously though, who doesn’t love lemons? I am one of those people who adds lemon on everything!
I love lemon in my tea, lots of lemon on my soup, on my salads, on cucumbers as snacks, in my water, and on my proteins. I can never get enough lemons! Besides the fact that it adds such a great flavor to the food I eat, it has many health benefits.

Did you know that introducing lemons to you diet with help with your digestion? It actually helps the body regulate its metabolism, lower the sugar absorption in you stomach, and increases the absorption of calcium which gets stored in your fat cells and later burns the fat. All this is due to the lemon’s acidity content and richness in vitamin C.

All you have to do is add lemon to your current diet, squeeze a few drops over your tea and salads, add it to your marinades and sauces, and finally enhance your flavors and health!
So, please bring on the Lemons. I want more!
