Your main squeeze

Whether you're making lemon bars or zesting for a salad, here's the easiest way to squeeze citrus so you get every last bit of juice from them.

What you need: Lemons, a countertop and knife.

What you do: Using a firm pressure, roll a lemon across your countertop a few times. Then cut it in half and hold one piece upside down so that the fleshy part of the citrus is in your palm. Squeeze. Repeat with the other piece.

Why it works: Rolling helps to break down cell walls (which releases more juice), while your grip ensures that you catch all of the seeds in your palm while squeezing.

Maxime voluptate corporis. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖
