Sweet and Lemony

Lemonbars

If you’re craving a sweet lemon treat, you can’t do much better than a Lemon Bar made fresh in Nugget’s bakeries. Made with rich, all-butter shortbread topped with baked lemon curd and a dusting of snow sugar, our lemon bars have no preservatives or additives. For another great marriage between lemon and shortbread, try Nikki’s Meyer Lemon Cookies, made with cold—pressed Meyer lemon oil and pure farmer’s butter.

Refresh with Citrus

With at least another month of winter staring us in the face, it’s easy to feel buried under heavy wool coats and sweaters. Lighten up with the refreshing, rejuvenating powers of citrus — it’s the next best thing to a tropical getaway.

Lemon: the Grown-Up Way

Lemon Drops

Pucker up for a lemon drop: try one made with Grey Goose and Earth & Vine’s Meyer Lemon Beverage Elixer. To make the ultimate lemon drop, add 1 ½ oz Grey Goose vodka and ½ oz of Elixir to a shaker with ice; shake and strain into a martini glass rimmed with sugar. Garnish your concoction with a lemon twist. (You can also make a virgin version of this drink by combining four parts water to one part elixer, poured over ice.)

Orange Juice to the Rescue!

Juicer

Up your Vitamin C intake with nutrient-rich orange juice. Making your own fresh-squeezed juice at home is easy with The Champion Juicer from Plastaket. For an even simpler fix, try some fresh-squeezed orange juice from Nugget’s Juice Bars. Nothing goes into this juice except for oranges — sweet, healthy and vitamin-rich.

Health Notes from Dr. Liz

Put Some Sunshine Into Your Winter

Dr Liz

Citrus fruit - oranges, tangerines, pomelos, grapefruit, kumquat and other citrus fruits have a wealth of health-boosting nutrients such as vitamin C (50% Daily Value per fruit), fiber and potent cancer-fighting compounds, such as limonene. Some other interesting citrus nutritional properties include:

  • Blood oranges – Their rich red-orange color comes from cancer-fighting compounds like lycopene and cryptoxanthin.
  • Clementines – Tasting just like candy, these little balls of goodness supply vitamin C and folate –¬ a B vitamin crucial for healthy pregnancies and reducing heart disease and cancer risk.
  • Grapefruit – In just under 40 calories, ½ a grapefruit supplies over half of your daily vitamin C needs, some water-soluble fiber along with lycopene (pink varieties) known to ward off prostate cancer.
  • Lemons/limes – these richly flavored citrus fruits contain limonene, a type of flavonoid that has antioxidant properties, which protect the immune system. Use lemon juice and zest in salads, sauces and marinades.
  • Tangerines – Besides supplying a wealth of vitamin C like other citrus fruits, tangerines also contain flavor compounds called terpenes that also have health-boosting properties
