We usually throw away lemon peels unless we need the zest for desserts. I just recently found out that the peel can be used to season foods.  When sprinkled on your food or drink, it tastes so much better.  Here’s the article I got from my email.

Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?  Simple.. place the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator.  Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater and shred the whole  lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.  Sprinkle it into your whisky, wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish  dishes.   All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste,  something that you may have never tasted before.   Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C.   Not anymore.  Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon  even in instant cup noodles.  What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than  preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?  Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times  more vitamins than the lemon juice itself.  And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.   But from now on, by following this simple procedure of  freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on to the top of  your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get
even healthier.  It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.  So place your lemon in your freezer and then grate it onto your meal every day.   It is a key to make foods tastier and you get to live  healthier and longer, too!   That’s the lemon secret!  Better late than NEVER!

Is your blood sugar high?  Onions can help balance it.  These veggies are packed with quercetin, a flavonoid proven to reduce the cellular inflammation that can cause insulin resistance (the inability to regulate blood sugar).  In fact, a daily dose of quercetin  can improve insulin sensitivity by 75 percent within 10 weeks, helping ward off health concerns such as fatigue and weight gain.

1. Hot Dogs. Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can’t live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and Bacon. Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts. Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries. Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acrylamides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries.

5. ALL CHIPS & COOKIES. All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

1. Sex is a beauty treatment. Scientific tests find that when women make love they produce amounts of the hormone estrogen, which makes hair shine and skin smooth.

2. Gentle,    relaxed lovemaking reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. The sweat    produced cleanses the pores and makes your skin glow.

3. Adventurous lovemaking   can burn up those calories you piled on during that romantic dinner.

4. Sex is one of the safest sports     you can take up. It stretches :    and tones up just about every muscle in the body. It’s more enjoyable than swimming  20 laps, or jogging 20 blocks and you don’t need special sneakers!

5. Sex is an instant cure for mild depression    Climaxing releases endorphins into the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and    leaving you with a feeling of well-being.

6. The more sex you have, the more you will be offered.    The sexually active body gives off greater quantities of chemicals called pheromones. These subtle sex perfumes drive the opposite sex crazy!

7. Sex is the safest tranquilizer in the world. IT IS 10 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN VALIUM.

8. Kissing    each day will keep the dentist away.   Kissing encourages saliva to wash food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.

9. Sex actually relieves headaches.    Achieving orgasm can release the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain.

10. A lot of lovemaking can unblock a stuffy nose.    Sex is a natural antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever.

It’s been a couple of weeks and I’ve been under the weather. With tons of work to do, I feel worse. My lack of sleep could be the culprit. Even if I take my vitamins, I don’t feel any better. Oh well, a two-week break is coming and I’ll try to make the most of it. I’ll catch up on much needed sleep.
