When the cold weather hits, and the winter sniffles arrive, we instinctively reach for lemons. That’s because lemons provide lots of lovely health benefits in fighting colds and flus. Lemons also lend their zesty flavour to these sweet and savoury lemon recipes for winter.
Health benefits of lemons
It’s widely known that lemons are a great source of vitamin C. One whole lemon will provide about 50% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C.
Lemons can also help with the absorption of iron from plant-based foods such as legumes, lentils, green beans and peas as well as soy-based foods such as tofu. This can help people on vegetarian diets to avoid anaemia.
