Want to balance out your PH levels? Lemons might be sour, but don't be fooled! Lemons are actually great for keeping your body's alkalinity in check, working wonders for the digestive system and serving as detoxifers helping to keep things clean. For a refreshing kick, try adding the juice of a lemon instead of the whole; this adds just enough lemon taste without the sour bitterness!

Selection Process

Look for lemons that feel heavy for their size; usually smaller citrus fruits are juicier. Also avoid any lemons with cuts, bruises, or blemishes.
