True Lemon – Review & Giveaway




Congrats Jessica!


You may have heard of a little thing called the Brita Challenge and if so, may have even taken the pledge to drink 8-10 glasses of water each day.  We all know that Water is important, but sometimes you want more than just water… And there are a TON of options out there for ways to flavor your water so that you feel like you are drinking something different… but most are full of chemicals and artificial sweeteners, so is it really any better than just drinking the diet or regular soda you are trying to replace?  Not really… Ah… but there is a better option.

I have recently discovered True Lemon (and the other varieties I’ll share in just a sec) and it does a remarkable job of transforming my plain water into something different.  There have been numerous studies showing that individuals who add lemon to their water drink MORE – and trust me, that’s not a bad thing. I’ve always been a fan of Lemon Water or Lime Water – in fact, you may even see me tweet occasionally daily that I went to my local Sonic Drive in JUST for Water with Lime because honestly Sonic Drive in has the best ice hands down… but since discovering True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange packets, Sonic Drive in will just have to find another source for their $0.57 cents a day.

Why I love them?  Easy.  The packets themselves are convenient to carry in my purse or keep at my desk at work – much easier than say carrying around a lemon and knife… or even sliced lemons.

This may gross some of you out, but think for just a second about the number of times a person working in a restaurant reaches into the “lemon bowl” to add lemon to your water… yeah… that’s another reason I like having my own lemon packet.

But What IS True Lemon (or Lime, or Orange or Grapefruit for that matter)

Straight from their Website:

Cold-pressed and crystallized lemon, lime and orange for water, Teas and recipes

  • 100% natural
  • Made from Lemons, Lime and Oranges
  • 0 Calories, 0g Carbs
  • Always Neat and Clean

I even like their Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade packets which, by the way, are sweetened with Stevia.

But don’t get stuck on water… You can use True Lemon, True Lime, and True Orange in ANYTHING calling for citrus flavor and unlike the lemons I forgot I had for way too long will keep nicely in your cupboard until you need them.

Sprinkle on your broccoli, green beans, or other veggie for an alternative to salt.  Lemon Chicken anyone?  Yes Please!  Perfect for fish and other seafood… The list could go on and on.

I even used some True Lemon in a “special” desert I made for the family the other night – Added a sprinkle of True Lemon to sliced Strawberries and blueberries and topped with homemade Lemony Whipped Cream.

Whether baking, broiling, grilling, roasting – the True Lemon products are a must have in any kitchen.The options are truly endless.So, HOW do you get your hands on this remarkable variety of citrus goodness?   I’m glad you asked 🙂
