Earlier I posted an article regarding the value of lemons to our health, with some benefits better than chemotherapy! Someone asked me to post the results when I did it. So here goes . . .
Wash an organic lemon very well and then freeze in a plastic bag. When completely frozen, grate the entire lemon. You can use the grated lemon any way you want - sprinkle on ice cream salad, or any food you like, add to smoothies, or make lemonade.
The article said that lemon peels contain compounds that are a thousand times more powerful than Andriamycin, a drug found in chemotherapy. The lemon peels only act on the malignant cells and do not damage the healthy cells. Chemo, on the other hand, destroys the malignant AND healthy cells. Lemon peels also can eliminate feelings of anxiety and irritability and can help regulate blood pressure.
To try it out, I made a small bowl of oatmeal, sprinkled a teaspoon of lemon peel on top, along with three drops of Stevia. I loved it! My daughter also made us an omelet for breakfast. I sprinkled a teaspoon over my eggs and added a little goat cheese. Great! Before you wrinkle up your nose (as my daughter and granddaughter did when I told them what I had done), try it yourself!
I put the grated peel in a small container and then put the rest of the lemon into the food processor with a little water. Then I put the pureed lemon into an ice cube tray to freeze for lemonade.
