Wren’s Lemon Bars

Wren’s Lemon Bars

Lemons are one of the best foods for purification. They are refreshing and cleansing and one of the few foods that you can bake with, cook with, grill with and even Clean with! Sweet and tart there are few things as refreshing on a hot summer day then a glass of lemonade. While you are squeezing the lemons for this recipe (and I recommend you do it by hand) imagine squeezing negativity out of your life.

Breathe in the scent of the lemon and allow it to refresh you. When you add raspberries you are adding vigor and stamina back into your life, specifically in the love department. And if you choose to use blueberries you are adding calm and peaceful energy. So pick the berry that will help you the most and enjoy this sweet treat on a hot night!
