Lemons are great for your health: they’re incredibly rich in Vitamin C and a wide range of other nutrients and antioxidants, and they add delicious flavor to both food and drinks. Many people keep a few lemons in their fruit bowl, but did you know there is a better way to keep them?
Freeze your lemons! Lemons are a great food to incorporate into our diet in any form, but freezing them makes it quicker and easier for us to access every part of the fruit. Without further ado, here are 10 reasons why you should keep lemons in the freezer:
1) Lemon peel is the best part. According to Health Unlocked, the peel contains 10 times more vitamins than the juice or the flesh of the lemon. Frozen lemons are firm enough to be grated into food. You’ll be utilizing every part of the fruit, including the bit that packs the greatest punch in terms of health benefits – the skin.
Try freezing them in halves for easy grating.
2) Lemons are rich in Vitamin C. This important vitamin helps to fight against colds and flus, and neutralizes the free radicals which age us, according to Real Food for Life. One large lemon gives us 53mg of Vitamin C, which is almost 90% of our daily requirement.
3) Lemons help our bodies repair. The massive amount of Vitamin C found in lemons is essential for producing collagen, which helps our bodies to form new bone, blood vessels, and tendons, and to repair wounds, say Healthy Eating.
