“Put the lime in the coconut and drink them both together/Put the lime in the coconut then you’ll feel better.” Whimsical song from the ’80s, yes, but the message still applies. Limes and their twin sisters, lemons, are great internal cleansers. Instead of filling your daily quota of water with just plain water, add a twist of lemon or lime. After a few months, the body works to shed extra fat. Mix lime with olive oil and herbs for a tasty salad dressing. Squeeze lemon or lime over your savory dishes like rice or fish instead of salt. Mix lemon water with enough honey to sweeten the taste. Freeze in ice trays and thaw slightly. Blend on high speed with a little water to make a slush.
