Lemon-Limeade Recipe

Vitamin C has many uses in the body; cancer and cataract prevention, fighting infection, and lowering cholesterol to name just a few. The body uses it up quickly, so it should be consumed multiple times throughout the day. It should be from food sources such as citrus, peppers, broccoli, strawberries, rosehips and dark leafy greens. Vitamins work together with minerals, phytonutrients, fiber, etc. , so they should be eaten as food, not taken from synthetic supplements. Consuming vitamin C helps vegetarians absorb iron eaten at the same meal. Vitamin C degrades quickly in cooking and when exposed to air, so I altered this recipe from recipezaar to make only 4 servings instead of 12. It takes only minutes to make another batch, and we won't lose any precious vitamin C.

1/4 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
1/4 c. fresh squeezed lime juice ( about 2 large limes)
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. cold water
Ice cubes if wanted
Mix all together in a pitcher and enjoy!
