Start off on a fresh, healthy foot with this high fiber, immune boosting smoothie that has exactly zero grams of fat. First introduced to the US from China in the 20th century, meyer lemons are sweeter than regular lemons, and are thought to be a cross between a mandarin orange and typical lemon. Because they’re a hybrid, they’re sweeter, and don’t have the traditional acidic tang of classic lemons. Give your body a healthy dose of vitamins C, A, K, as well as iron, fiber, natural hydration and anti-inflammatories, while still maintaining a focused diet.
