How I Love Thee....Lime....Let me Count the Ways!!

So being "over 30", I started realizing that my metabolism doesn't bounce back like it used to and began making some cuts in my daily caloric intake. About a year ago, I had stopped drinking Coke and started drinking Coke Zero. I was SO proud of myself until recently I read that many of the artificial sugars can cause an increase in appetite! Oh great!

At the beginning of the 2011, I did a detox to start off the year and switched over to water during that time. In that week, I made a discovery, KEY LIME WATER.....thank you, Wal*Mart!
So I have ONLY been drinking water for the past month and it is really all about lime.

Lime - A small, lemon-shaped citrus fruit with a thin green skin and juicy, pale green pulp. The two main varieties are the Persian lime and the Key lime. Key limes are smaller, yellower in color, seedy, sourer, and grow on thorny trees. Read more @ Food.com


So this is my tribute to limes.....

#10 - You are a healthy cold remedy (mixed with honey).

#9 - You are my favorite color.

#8 - You make drinking a gallon of water a day a breeze!

#7 - You promote weight loss.

#6 - You are making my skin shine a little more each day.

#5 - When you are in dairy, like a Cherry Limeade Chiller from Sonic, you are Mmm...Mmm Good!

#4 - You are not harsh on my stomach like your other citrus friends.

#3 - You actually give me a small amount of protein.

#2 - You are a HUGE health benefit in so many ways!

#1 - You make my water taste awesome!

Thank you, Lime! You are my new favorite thing!

Hey, Baby, gotta add my "two cents" about limes, too. Just recently, during a skirmish between a neighborhood group and the U.N. troops here in Haiti, tear gas was sprayed to disperse the crowd. It was right here on our street, so the gas flooded into the house, burning and causing our eyes to water terribly. As I told one of our faithful, Haitian friends about it, he told me to get a lime, cut it open, and rub the lime under my eyes and that it would stop the burning and tearing. One more very good reason to have limes on hand!!

@Beverly BrumbleyWow! Thanks, Mom! What a great addition to my list...

"You keep my eyes from watering during tear gas."

LOL!!

Limes are truly awesome!

@Naomi @ Joyfully Seeking Thanks, Naomi! Lime hot sauce...wow...will have to try that...my hubby would love it, I am sure -- he loves hot stuff! :)

A cold remedy? Well, I guess I should have known that since it's a citrus. I am so stuck in the orange groove for citrus for a cold. Thanks for mentioning this.

Lindsey V said... Best Blogger Tips

@Sisterlisa
I know! It was a great discovery! And since I had an ulcer a couple of years ago, limes are not harsh on my stomach like too many oranges. Enjoy!

Stephanie said... Best Blogger Tips

Water is my favorite drink! I should try it more often with lime. (Do you just squeeze a bit in your glass?)

Lindsey V said... Best Blogger Tips

@Stephanie I actually buy from Wal*Mart sparkling water with key lime flavoring for 0 calories {link above in post}. However, I usually add a couple of slices to my bottle to give it an "extra" kick. I have recently started asking for lime instead of lemon when I order water in a restaurant and it, too, is VERY nice!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi, Lindsay! I'm actually a plain old water fan, but I do drink Coke...and I know it's not the greatest for me. :s (blushing) I ought to try some water with lime as a treat! I'm going to check out your link to see the health benefits!! Thanks so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. :)

Lindsey V said... Best Blogger Tips

@Amanda @ Serenity Now Thanks, Amanda, for stopping by! Sparkling Lime Water has changed my life! :) :) LOL...a bit dramatic...but seriously, it helps so much that I literally drink a gallon a day without really "trying"!
