Hey guys! Today, I have a ridiculous discovery that I want to share with you.
Lately, I’ve fallen off the wagon and started drinking Diet soda again. I know… yikes! It’s not good for you, and I know I need to curtail this bad habit as soon as possible.
So I was looking for an easy way to make something to replace it. I love all of my sparkling water recipes.. no doubt! But sometimes you just need something quick and on the fly that you can chug without having to cut and smash fruit.
As I was shopping this afternoon, I made an amazing discovery! And now I can make great Lime Water in 2 seconds flat.
The Easiest Lime Water Recipe ever!
When you don’t have time to cut and squeeze a lime, use these amazing True Lime Packets! (This post is not an ad. I’m sharing my personal love of this brand.)
All you have to do is keep some packets with you at all times and add them to your water bottles!
Why should you drink lime (or lemon) water?
Dr. Axe has a great article on the benefits of lemon water. In it, he says the following:
- A lemon water detox can help promote liver function and regularity. It also detoxifies your body by acting as a diuretic to flush out potential toxins.
- Lemon water may also enhance immunity, increase weight loss, prevent kidney stones, improve skin health and boost energy levels and mood.
Are Lemon and Limes the same?
Pretty much. They have many of the same qualities and nutritional make-up. Healthline says:
Lemons and limes are similar in their nutritional makeup. They also contain many of the same plant compounds that may play a role in reducing inflammation and preventing certain diseases.
So whether you prefer lemon or lime, you can easily get it on the go with these packets from True Citrus!
What’s so great about using these packets from True Citrus?
