Lemon Boost

UnknownA cup of coffee – preferably espresso – is my go-to drink in the morning, but lemon and hot water comes in a close second.

Easy to make – just squeeze half a lemon into a cup of hot water.  Hot water warms the vocal chords and soothes the throat.  Add a little fresh ginger, and the drink becomes healthier.

But beware of the acid on your teeth.  Rinse with plain water after drinking the lemon water, and the Mayo Clinic says to wait 30 minutes before you brush your teeth – which gives you time to finish that cinnamon bun.
