Lemons are known to be the healthiest fruit on the planet, but what most people don’t know Is that their peel and skin are actually the healthiest parts. That’s why you should never throw away the peel, but rather consume it.
When you eat the lemons together with the peel, you get 5 to 10 times more vitamins than eating only the lemon flesh. Lemons are rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin A, riboflavin, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folate, potassium, magnesium, and protein.
The best way to get all the health benefits from the lemon peel is to freeze the lemon after you wash it thoroughly.
Once it’s frozen, cut off the ends and grate it together with the peel. After that, you are free to choose how you’ll consume it. You can add it in salads, soups, yogurt, pasta sauces or homemade ice cream. You can also add a tablespoon of grated lemon in your smoothie, juice or tea, or in baked goods. The choice is completely up to you. Enjoy!
