We all know that lemons are one of the healthiest fruits on the planet. But, did you know that the peel and the skin are the healthiest parts of lemons? Therefore, throwing away lemon peels is not such a good idea.
Namely, if you eat lemons together with their peel, you will get 5 to 10 times more vitamins than eating only the lemon flesh. Lemons abound in vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin A, riboflavin, phosphorus, iron, calcium, folate, potassium, magnesium, and protein. All of these nutrients make lemons extremely beneficial for health.
-Furthermore, in order to reap all of the health benefits of lemons you should consume them with their peel and the best way to do so is to freeze them. But, before putting it into the freezer, you first need to clean the lemon and dry it completely. Wait until it is completely frozen and then take it out from the freezer.
When you take out the lemon out of the freezer, cut off one of the ends of the frozen lemon in order for it to be flat. Grind it with the flat side against the grates, just like you do with a piece of cheese. That way you will be free from the danger to slipping it while you are shredding it up.
-Then, use it on whatever you are eating. Lemon peels will give a stronger taste to your dishes. Add some grated lemon peels to your salads, soups, yogurt, pasta sauces or homemade ice cream.
Add a tablespoon of your grated lemons to your smoothie, juice or tea. They go well in baked goods as well. Trust your imagination, there are millions of ways to use grated lemons.
