The weather is changing and when it does everyone loves soups. We are going to be throwing out our favorite soup recipes. Hope you enjoy.

This is an amazing soup that we have on our salad bar at MealFit Salads in Cookeville, Tennessee. This is a pretty easy dish and will be great to have with a good old fashioned grilled cheese made with our Gluten Free Grain Free bead.

Another great thing about this meal is, is that we are using Ameo Essential Oils in the recipe. I love these things.

The cost saving coupled with the flavor is unreal. You cannot go wrong with using these in cooking.

TOP 5 Reasons to Drink Lemon Water

There is a lot of talk these days about the positive effects of Lemon water or fruit infused water, so I decided to dig in and do some research.

Here is the way this article will work. I will give you the researched reasons of why it is good then I will give you my reasons why I personally like it.

1. Strengthens Immune System

Our immune system protects our body by combating illness. Weak immune system makes our body susceptible to illness and infections. Warm lemon water has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties which fight harmful bacteria, fungus, and virus that cause diseases and infections. Its antioxidant property helps eliminate toxins from the body. Lemons are rich in vitamin in vitamin C and potassium, which keep the body running on all cylinders and help the immune system and heart.

2. Clear Skin 

Vitamin C is a key factor for clean healthy skin. It flushes toxins out of the blood so they do not accumulate in pores and hydrates skin cells. Water hydrates the skin, plumping it up and pushing out wrinkles, allowing it to glow the way it was meant to. Antioxidants in lemons, including vitamin C, protect against free radical and solar damage too.

Drinking 64oz+ of water daily is a sure fire way to take years off your looks.

 

3. Aids Weight Loss:

Lemons contain pectin. This is a fiber that helps reduce cravings and make you feel full. It is a zero calorie drink that you can use to replace high calorie soft drinks and juices.

Honey and lemon water is a popular and effective remedy for weight loss. This drink has formed a part of several weight loss programs. Both are beneficial for health. To lose weight, take a glass of warm water, add 1 teaspoon honey, squeeze 1 lemon to it and drink it on an empty stomach daily in the morning. It increases the metabolism rate which burns calories fast. Stimulated metabolism uses fat as an energy source, causing you to lose weight. Lemon water with honey also boosts your energy level.

The combination of all these functions goes a long way in promoting healthy weight loss.

 

 

4. Aids in digestion

Lemon contains citric acid, which helps stimulate the secretion of gastric juices for digestion and aids in natural bowel movement which flushes out built-up toxins along the way. Lemon water is also a mild diuretic that can help cleanse your urinary tract and kidneys. This can improve blood pressure as well.

5. Alkalizes the body

Lemon creates an alkalizing effect in the body, which helps your body fight diseases. Drinking lemon water before a meal can raise your PH level which supports your body’s natural immune response. In addition, studies prove that more alkalized bodies, are able to lose weight faster.

 

Now for my reasons.
I went for about 3 weeks and supplemented Lemon water though out my day with about 32-50 oz a day then another 50-80 oz or regular water. Through that time I did lose some weight. Roughy about 5-8 lbs depending on the time of day. Adding that to my daily routine is the only thing I changed.

 

Great Change up from the normal Water. I love water and the way it taste. Sometimes I like cold water and sometimes I like room temperature water. It all depends on my mood. This was a great change up.

How do I make it?

  • 32 oz Pitcher
  • 3 Lemons
  • Ice
  • Water.
  • Squeeze the lemons in the water. I really don’t care if the seeds are in there. Some people are funny about that. (NOTE: I do not throw in the whole lemon.It gives it a bitter taste, so just squeeze in the juice)
  • Throw in some ice. (Does not matter how much)
  • Fill the rest with water

 

Do you drink Lemon Water or another kind of fruit infused water?

Tell me about it. If I try it and post it, I will send you a MealFit T-Shirt.

Purple Haze Sweet Potatos – Side Dish

Side dishes are always the thing, in my opinion that can take a meal from good to great. Side dishes can also take the dish from healthy to un-healthy in the blink of an eye.

The trick is to make that healthy side dish taste as good or better than the un-healthy one. That is what we try to do. Take healthy dishes and make them taste amazing. We love sweet potatoes. I get them from a farmer in McMinnville Tennessee about 45 min from where I live in Cookeville.

Sweet potatoes are a better alternative to white potatoes because of the lower glycemic content and effect they have on the body.
