When life gives you lemons, make lemonade...
or if you buy lemons and do not want them to go to waste, make lemonade.
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
~Juice of 4 lemons
~Half cup raw sugar
~6 cups filtered water
Stir well, add ice.
ahhh. if everything in life were that easy. oh and of course, enjoy!
I've decided not to buy store bought juice on a regular basis after reading several articles on the raw food diet and how in general it is better to eat the fruit itself than drink the juice- after drinking only water, milk and the occasional tea for several weeks my little ones were more than excited to enjoy a glass of lemonade, now I know this does have sugar in it- but in contrast to them drinking 8oz of apple juice daily, I'd say this is a great improvement in their daily intake. I encourage you all to start making your own freshly squeezed juice from fresh local produce, get your kids involved, they'll love it!
