Your recipe calls for half a lemon…what do you do with the other half? Here are my three favorite uses!
1. ZING!! Squeeze over fresh salad greens for a quick non-oil based “dressing” finish with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
2. BRIGHTEN!! Run your fingers inside the lemon to brighten your nails. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and can effectively clean off yellow stains from your nails. Plus, lemon juice also works as an astringent.
3. FRESHEN!! Add a fresh lemon scent to your garbage disposal by squeezing the juice from the lemon into it and dropping the peel down in before turning on (with water running!).
There are so many uses for lemons outside of a citrus chicken recipe! These are just a few of my favorites!
