From a Bettina Network Lifestyle Community Member:
“Well I read through the blogs for the diet but did not find one. ”
However, I did find some great tips. I am drinking lime juice now….. It almost instantaneously curbed my hunger. This was so on time with this being my day of clear liquids and the gad between now and my last meal of an egg sandwich right before midnight. Thanks for this, I will be using up my limes today.
In the spirit of giving back: before you squeeze the lime or lemon, peel it thinly, hang it to dry out. In a couple of weeks, take it, break it apart, throw it in a processor and grind it. You will end up with two consistencies, the more coarse consistency on the top. I separate the coarse pieces and set them aside to use: to make tea; for seasoning sea food; for baking; making marmalades; to garnish certain foods or desserts. The finer consistency I store in a vial and place on the shelf with my baking spices. A 1.5 oz bottle of lemon peel goes for roughly $10 and up , with organic coming in higher.
In baking I use the peel of approximately 1/2 a lime in the eggs, it helps to cut the fresh smell. I remove the fresh peel before baking. The dry peels I add as an ingredient and those go through the fire. I have gotten creative in making cranberry orange muffins. It is quite delightful to bite into tidbits of orange peel.
Lime/ lemon peel tea is great for sore throats, cold or flu. ”
Ed Note: Thanks for those tips. We are certainly ready for anything to cut colds or flu – especially if it does not have to be injected into our bodies at Drug Stores. Oops! Sorry – you can tell my age by that slip-up. They changed the name of those stores for this current generation. They are now called the Pharmacy.
Ed Note: We do not believe in diets and you won’t find the traditional kind in Bettina Network’s Blog – if you are talking about the listing of menus giving you what to eat at which meal on a particular day. We believe that has developed to shore up the Diet Industry that is growing by leaps and bounds and making some people lots of money but getting the rest of us into an obese condition. That kind of diet justifies those company‘s where you send for your meals by the week and still don’t lose weight, except for the weight loss by the lightness of your pocketbook. A diet for us is to squeeze an organic lemon into a cup of warm water and drink this when you first wake up in the mornings. AND about 4pm squeeze four organic limes into a cup and drink it before you go off eating everything in sight.
