I am not one to complain about the weather. Being raised in Northern California, the good days definitely outweighed the bad. Considering I did not move to the East Coast until I was 26, the majority of my life has been surrounded by much better weather than not. It's a source of endless conversation, but I had not been obsessed with trying to figure it out, that is until this year...
I've got only 2 brownies left from the box you sent me...I'm dreading finishing the box. They're too good!

This sour citrus fruit is often associated with its tart taste and high acidity level. While lemons exist acidic in nature on its own, they become alkaline when metabolized by the body. As such, consuming lemons will naturally balance the pH level of the body, especially since most western diets tend to produce an acidic-leaning environment in the stomach. The strong antibacterial properties of lemons have been documented since Ancient Egyptian times. Lemons also have a long maritime history that helped made the Age of Exploration possible. Their high vitamin C content makes them a critical stable aboard ships to help ward of sickness. So whether you are a pirate or an entrepreneurial kid with a lemonade stand, lemons are the ingredient of gold.
