Here's Why You Should Freeze Your Lemons
Patricia Lynn

When life hands you lemons, what do you do? Here’s an idea. The next time you find a bag of lemons for a good deal, save them in the freezer. If you save the lemons in the freezer, you’ll have lemons ready for you whenever you need them!

Like when you want to make a lemon cake. Or a lemonade. Or if you want to squeeze some lemon juice on top of your chicken wings. There’s a use for lemons on any occasion!

Freezing lemons is not only convenient, but it also has many health benefits. Here are a few reasons why you should start freezing your lemons:

Lemon peels contain 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice!

How often do you use the peel of a lemon? If you freeze a lemon, you can grate or shred the lemon peel easily and sprinkle it on top of your dish. Whether it’s a salad, soup, cupcake, pasta, or whatever, this is a great way to add some zest into your meal. This will also allow you to gain more vitamins and get rid of toxins in your body faster.

Easy accessibility means more usage

You’re more likely to use something if you have easy access to it. And with all the health benefits that lemons posses, we should really be trying to implement more of it into our lives.

Lemons are known to be effective agents against cysts, tumors, and many types of cancers. Studies have shown that lemons are allegedly 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy!

They also have the ability to fight against bacterial infections and fungi. Why do you think there are so many cleaning solutions with the scent of lemon?

Lemons waters taste better

I always always always ask for lemons in my water whenever I’m out. This adds a little more flavor to my water and makes it easier to drink. You can easily freeze slices of lemon so that you can plop one into your water whenever you want! You can also use it for tea, lemonade, or a margarita. Mmm.
