Since starting to change my lifestyle I have done a lot of reading to learn more about my body and what I should and shouldn’t be putting into it. One thing I’m currently loving is lemons, there are so many benefits to them that it would be silly not to.
It has actually turned into a little obsession of mine now! I love the colour yellow, have lemon wallpaper on my phone and even want to try and wear more yellow. What can I say? It’s a happy colour especially when the sun is out and living in London it doesn’t
happen that often.
Lemons have so many nourishing elements from vitamin C to protein, they contain antioxidants which can help with high blood pressure and constipation. It can improve your internals as well as your skin and hair.

route of tablets and shop bought goods.
Since trying out this lifestyle I have noticed that I wake up happier and wanting to start my day, this is a bloody huge thing for me! A few months ago I was an anxious and depressed mess, of course, I’m only human and still have my down days but they are a
lot less and I feel like I can deal with them better when they come.
