I was doing a little research on the Lemon to discover it's called the sunshine fruit. I guess it shares that title with the orange! Historically, the lemon goes back a long way, although no one is certain of the exact origin of this super healthy fruit. Evidence points to it's origins in the Asian areas of China and India. In approximately 700 AD it somehow made its way into Persia and become a fundamental plant for decorating Islamic gardens. From that central point it expanded into the Mediterranean regions of Europe and found worthy by Christopher Columbus. He took the seeds of the lemon on his voyage to South America, and this appears to be the best evidence for the introduction of this citrus fruit into the content of America.
When juicing lemons at home, ot any citrus fruit for that matter, add the white pith to the mix. The white membranes of citrus fruits are seriously concentrated in antioxidants, even more so than the flesh of the fruits. Getting that white pithy stuff into your juicer machine along with the flesh is going to majorly increase the nutritional content and health benefits of the resulting juice.
You can even scrape some of the white stuff of the inside of the skin to get even more into your juice machine. Don't juice the skin however, it will create a very unpleasant tasting juice.
Onto the lemon juice recipes:
1/4 of a watermelon
Fruit Salad Juice
Lemon & Apple
1/4 of lime
Dilute as much as you need. Straight lemon juice is a bit intense!
