It would be expected that a lemon would have an acidic effect on the body. However, it is evident that a lemon causes an alkaline reaction inside the body. Generally, raw food including lemon is alkaline in nature.
Suggestions for using a lemon
A good idea is that of squeezing olive oil and lemon onto a salad to form a fast, easy and healthy dressing. Another idea is cutting up cucumbers followed by squeezing fresh lemon into a water pitcher. This is not only a refreshing drink, but it also helps in giving the skin a healthy glow.
Choosing a lemon
A good lemon should not only have a thin skin, but it should also have a ripe banana-like feel. Softer lemons would give more juice.
Choosing ripe bananas
It is not advisable to eat bananas while still green. Unripe bananas would have a bitter and hard taste. It is advisable to wait until bananas have brown spot speckles. You should ensure that a banana is not only ripe, but maximum vitamins should be preserved.
A blend of frozen bananas and other fruits such as strawberries forms a milkshake-like drink or ice-cream. One of the easiest ways of freezing a banana and using it later is waiting till it is ripe, peeling it and cutting into eight to ten chunks. This is followed by putting the chunks into a freezer or freezing container.
