It used to be that as soon as I woke up in the morning, the first thing I did was brush my teeth and then drink a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee. About 2-months ago, I changed that routine by swapping the caffeine for a tall glass of water with a squeeze of half a lemon.
My mom has tried to convince me to make this change for years and years because supposedly it is better for the digestion. My standing reply to her suggestion has been – there is nothing wrong with my digestion. Bless her heart for always putting up with my brattiness.
Well, here we are, with me 6-months away from turning 40 and nursing a 4th baby. On my best days I feel like a withered twig in dire need of moisture. So you know what, I think I am ready to take her advice. Although just for the record, there is still nothing wrong with my digestion.
On a different note, a bowl of lemons in the kitchen makes for a nice still-life.
