|hot water w/ lemon|
rather than hitting up the fridge for a pre-bed snack, try a glass/mug of hot water with a slice or two of fresh lemon.
not only will the lemon help satisfy the sugar cravings but also (according to Jethro Kloss in his book Back to Eden) help:
- cleanse the system of impurities and prevent disease;
- dissolve uric acid (often the cause of pain and inflammation in joints) and other poisons in the body; and
- reduce symptoms of malaria, rheumatism, gout, rickets and tuberculosis
plus! lemon is also an excellent stimulant to the liver, liquefing bile and helping to control excess bile flow (ewwh! but yay!)
