I've been seeing people posting about lemon water on their social media and blogs, then I read something about grapefruit water. Both claim to be healthy drinks that helps in detoxing. These are just a few of those fad diets that are floating on the world wide web.
I have nothing about lemons and grapefruits. In fact, I love citrus fruits. If you browse in the beverage section of our blog, you will find lots of beverage recipes that comes with citruses. The truth is, I drink citrus juices, with the citrus' pulps, at least once a day,and I make sure I do that everyday.
What I don't agree with is that this so called lemon or grapefruit water do not use the juices nor the pulps, the lemon and grapefruit are sliced and soaked in water then one has to drink the water. Nutrients are found in the skin and the meat of a fruit. I am not convinced that the fruits' nutrients are transferred to the water just by soaking them. If it's not. then what nutrient is the drinker getting from the said "water" unless of course if that individual eat the fruit while drinking the water. If that is the case, then why not just juice the the citruses or eat them as is, by that you get all the nutrients and goodness of the fruit, isn't it?
Peace people :-) I am not picking a fight with anyone, just stating the obvious. Anyway, here's our usual dose of citrus goodness, juice and pulps intact and so are the citruses' nutrients :-)
