Make This Healthy and Delicious Soup in a Jiffy

I like to add lemon to my food as often as I can. It is not only flavorful and tasty, but it's also nutritious. Lemon-based foods have a sharp taste and a fresh flavor that make for great appetizers.

Lemons are healthy because they contain vitamins A, B6, C, and E, as well as other minerals like folate, niacin, calcium, pantothenic acid, copper, and iron. High in antioxidants, lemons may help to prevent constipation, fever, indigestion, and high blood pressure. They may also improve the health of the skin, hair, and teeth.

This soup is very easy and quick to make. This is my own recipe.
