Summer Maybe A Distant Memory But Lemonade Is Always On My Mind

Since summer is actually over, and I’m starting to eat things like mushroom stuffed pumpkin, it’s about time I posted my lemonade recipe. This post is long overdue, as my schedule seems to be more and more insane as the hours pass (but no excuses!). Regardless, this recipe was a special one I concocted for my trip to the gluten-free potluck in honor of Shauna and Danny’s new book, The Gluten-free Girl & The Chef.

I think this was my first official blog outing, which made me incredibly anxious, but I knew I would be safe in an environment based around Shauna. Hers was the first blog I ever read, after becoming gluten-intolerant (or…finding out). I read her book and cried, laughed, and sat in amazement at her writing and ability to share herself. I so admire that, being an incredibly private and possibly paranoid person myself. I’ve followed her ever since, and was excited by the idea to not only meet her, but make something to bring. I knew it had to stand out from the potluck crowd, and as my concord grape obsession was led by the summer season, I made a lemonade. I previously made a blueberry lemonade, which I still love, but this is a more unique combination of flavors that luckily went over very well with all the attendees.

I read her book and cried, laughed, and sat in amazement at her writing and ability to share herself.

Celebrities like Beyonce and Robin Quivers swear by “The Lemonade Diet”

beyonce 01 Celebrities like Beyonce and Robin Quivers swear by The Lemonade Diet

Beyonce, David Blaine, Billy Bob Thornton, Robin Quivers and other celebrities all praise the Master Cleanse, aka “The Lemonade Diet” for everything from weight loss to detox and restoring their energy and healthy eating habits.

Created by Naturopath Stanley Burroughs, the fast consists of a 10 day fast on a spicy lemonade elixer to cleanse toxins and congestion from the body and purify the liver, kidneys and glands. It is also supposed to purify the blood, balance blood pressure and the most attractive effect is weight loss.

Although it’s really not meant to be a fad diet or quick fix. It’s only meant as a short term fast to cleanse the body. If it’s not followed by healthy and sensible eating habits, and the person goes back to junk food, they will quickly regain their weight and toxin build-up. It is also not meant to be followed for an extended time without expert supervision. The Master Cleanse recipe is 8-10oz. of warm spring or purified water, 2 TB Lemon Juice, 2 TB of grade B or C maple syrup, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
