Lemons and Limes

A. Bitter Food: You are craving relaxation

. Bitter food makes your face jerk, twist and move so you are a magnet for movement and flow. This is important for helping people to “go with the flow” of life and relax. However, overeating foods that are bitter is very bad for people with CKD and may cause stress and tightness.  Rather than indulging in excessive amounts of lemonade or sour candy find ways that you can sink into the moments of life and reflect. When you get a craving for bitterness try doing something to relax yourself, like deeply breathing, taking a walk, or meditating/resting. You may even want to try writing or painting to flow with your creativity!
