“A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.”
All kinds of people are saying that the entire lemon should be used with nothing wasted. Not only for the obvious health benefits but also for the amazing taste!
Why Freezing Lemons is a Must
Unfortunately, lemons can go bad very easily. The good news is there is one solution that can help you solve this particular problem. If you want to save your lemons, all you need to do is freeze them. Freezing is not only for the fruit, but also for the juice and other parts of the lemon that you can consume at your convenience. Another reason why you should freeze your lemons is that the method can help you use lemons much easier.
Freezing lemons isn’t hard of course. However, it is important that you do the following steps to ensure the best results:
It’s best to choose lemons with no soft parts or dark spots. Wash the lemons first with water. You can also use fruit soap if you have. Another technique is to mix water and white vinegar, which is effective in removing pesticides.And you should have some freezer bags that you can seal well.
You can freeze whole lemons, grated lemons, just the lemon juice, slices and wedges of the fruit, and lemon zest. The whole point of the process of freezing lemons is that every part of the fruit can be consumed and should not go to waste. And yes, that includes the peel. In fact, you should NEVER throw away as they have five to 10 times the amount of vitamins than the juice of the fruit itself. Unfortunately, most of us waste the peels and drink the juice instead.
There are studies that claim lemons are at least 10,000 times more powerful than chemotherapy. So next time you buy lemons, make sure you freeze them and consume every part.
