For an easy weeknight meal, save and freeze leftover sauces from previous meals in ice cube trays. The cubes can be reheated in a sauté pan when you need a quick sauce –David Burke, source Maggi Cooks TNT.

Lemon cool

For the love of Lemons!

Lemons are cool for a number of reasons, here are just a few:

  • A natural energizer (I found that in all citrus fruits).
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Balances pH
  • Flush out unwanted materials
  • Decrease wrinkles and blemishes
  • Relieve tooth pain
  • Relieves respiratory problems
  • Cures throat infections
  • Excellent for weight loss
  • Reduces fever
  • Blood purifier

Lovely lemon

Nature’s flu shot: Ingredients: 6 fresh lemons, 1 bulb garlic, 2 tsp. ginger powder, 2 tbsp honey, 3 cups pineapple juice, ¼ tsp cayenne powder.

Blend all ingredients and store in glass jar. Have 1 cup 4 times a day till symptoms are resolved.

Totally Teas!

Tea

I don’t know anyone who drinks more tea than I do (a least 4 cups a day). I have never lived in a house without a kettle. At any given time you can find a number of these in my cupboard. Here are the benefits:

Green tea: Boosts metabolism and contains antioxidants
White tea: Antibacterial and antiviral properties
Black tea: Help lower blood pressure and heart disease
Mint: Helps bloating and aids digestion.

Happy drinking! Hope you enjoyed as usual I look forward to your comments.
