Avoiding coffee and caffeine

A recent comment by Mary made me think about what I've adopted instead of drinking coffee or tea. I can't drink either because:

Autumn is creeping up and there's just something that I love about having my hands wrapped around a big hot mug... so I drink hot lemon water! And it has a lot of benefits.

  • Aids in digestion
  • It helps to rid your body of toxins because it makes you urinate more - it's actually advised that cancer patients drink it!
  • Lemons balance your PH levels by making your body more alkaline
  • Lemons are high in pectin fiber which promotes weight loss
  • Hydrates your lymph system
  • High in Vitamin C which is good for your immune system and your skin

* Just don't drink weirdly large amounts of lemon water because the acidity in the lemons can wear down the enamel on your teeth!
