Lemons and that sexy inner glow.


It’s spring and a great time to detox, change your eating habits. Thankfully mother nature gives all we need if you just look around. This is the first in a series of spring eating topics I am going to be sharing with you. These are the topics I would be covering in my cooking class that I had planned to do. But it works out for everyone as you can enjoy this from the comfort of your own home!  Want to know more about what I do as a health coach or want to work together? Follow the link below for more information.

Now lets get talking about why you should be including lemons into your life. First an amazing recipe for you that has our featured lemons and salmon. Between the antioxidents in the lemons and the omega 3’s in the salmon you have a great mix for that inner glow.

Below the recipe is a short video from me talking about lemons and a helpful hint that helped me melt away 30 lbs a few years ago without going on a crazy diet or excersise routine. I love to use this tip now when I need to get more enery, clean up my skin and in the spring I just have a natural calling for it to detox from the heavy winter foods that were eaten.

Ok as promised here my video about lemons. Excuse the low quality and angle , I had one heck of a time getting this recorded as my camera decided to not play nice and so I had to record this with my phone. I felt like I was trying not to laugh at the silliness of what had happened while trying to record this.
