Why Lemons Make You Stronger
Most foods have way more hidden power than we realize. Sure, we eat things that taste good. And of course we eat things that we know are good for us, like fruits and vegetables, but there is way more to it than that.
Each fruit or vegetable – or any food for that matter – has is own unique quality that gives it specific health benefits that more directly serve a certain part of our body. For example, carrots are good for your eyes and fish is good for your heart.
This brings us to lemons. Lemons are in our water, on our food, in recipes, and the list goes on. There are lots of places lemons are used. So, what’s the deal with lemons?
Well, we found out:
“When life gives you lemons, you don’t make lemonade. You use the seeds to plant a whole orchard—an entire franchise!”
—Anthon St. Maarten
Lemon is one of the most commonly used ingredients when it comes to the culinary arts. It has the ability to bring its own tangy flavor and enhance the dish’s other flavors. The lemon is said to be a “flavor catalyst,” meaning it opens the taste buds so the flavors that follow it are more prominent.
