Lemon Healthy Tips

Reasons To Love Lemons


Breathe Easier

Vitamin C flights free radical-induced muscle contraction and airway constriction, as well as inflammation-induced histamines. Try starting each day with a warm glass of water with a squeeze of lemon and teaspoon of honey.

Regulate High Blood Pressure

Lemons are packed with potassium, which helps regulate high blood pressure. Add a hearty squeeze of lemon to your herbal tea on those stressful days.

Food Preservative

To prevent your freshly sliced bananas, avocados or apples from turning brown, sprinkle them with some lemon juice and you will witness a true culinary miracle!

History

Lemonokipos has a long history, since in 1910 the owner's grandfather opened the first pub. It is housed in the courtyard of a Venetian mansion at Rethymno Old Town. With a family and cozy atmosphere, and the scent of lemon trees (Lemonokipos means garden with lemon trees) being dominant, it will definitely make an impression on you. You will have the chance to try traditional Cretan cuisine dishes with a modern twist. Don't miss out on the lamb in lemon sauce, sausages with molasses, chicken with bergamot and bitter orange, coconut milk risotto, fava (split peas) with caramelised onions and sun-dried tomatoes, tenderloin with rakomelo (raki with honey) and sun-dried tomatoes.
