I believe in eating healthy meals prepared at home and although the benefits are tangible, it is always hard to want to spend 2 hours in the kitchen when I would rather spend two hours making art. I am always looking for shortcuts that help speed up meal preparation and one of those tips that I always wanted to try but didn't until a few months ago was juicing lemons and freezing the juice. I finally invested in a good juicer (pictured here is my made-in-the-USA NEMCO juicer) that allows me to juice an entire bag of lemons with ease. After juicing them, using a tablespoon measure, I pour juice into an ice cube tray (1 tablespoon per cube). Once frozen, I pull out the cubes and put them in a freezer safe plastic container. Healthy meals often call for lemon juice to brighten up flavors and now a tablespoon of juice is just a few steps away in my freezer. Added benefit: lemons no longer go bad in my fridge when I don't use them.
