The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water

* The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water.

Here’s a “public service” announcement for you guys!

Look! Jeff Eats really has no idea if drinking warm lemon water is good or for that matter, bad for you- what I do know is as my late Grandma Anna use to say, “It couldn’t hurt.”

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, since I first told you about “The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water” way-back on 9/8/14- I’ve been swigging the “stuff” daily…

Jeff Eats is thinking that Grandma Anna was right, “It couldn’t hurt.”

* The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water.

Jeff Eats just finished reading “16 Health Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water” on foodmatters.tv and I thought that you guys might enjoy the story.

Nothing for nothing, I’m thinking- that if this warm lemon water -thing is legit–I’m in…seems kinda easy to do!

Now, if I understand this-deal correctly, all I gotta do is down my Five Guys’ cheeseburger and fries with a warm glass of lemon water and I’ll have done my body a real-solid!

Like I said 2 seconds ago, I’m in!

One final thought, if stuff like watermelon, blueberries, lemons, are “so good” for you-how come most people drop dead in their 70s and 80s anyway? Also- how come a ton of “those” people who order Water With Lemon- still look and feel like crap? I guess the water wasn’t warm enough!

Miller’s Ale House (Boca Raton)
Posted on March 24th, 2016 · American Boca Raton

***** Miller’s Ale House, 1200 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33431, (561) 988-9142.

Jeff Eats is gonna take a shot here and “think” that you guys know what Miller’s Ale House is! If not- sports bar chain that currently has 51 joints in Florida, 1 in Georgia, 2 in Illinois, 1 in Maryland, 1 in Massachusetts, 2 in Nevada, 3 in New Jersey, 6 in New York, 1 in Ohio, 4 in Pennsylvania. You can check millersalehouse.com for locations/menu/prices/operating hours/info.

Way-back on July 12, 2008 Jeff Eats told you-about the Miller’s Ale House in Jupiter, Florida. In 2008 I described the joint’s food as being okay and perfectly priced! That tale is reprinted down-below.

If you guys can keep a secret, since that 7/12/2008 tale printed (until this past Monday) Jeff Eats hadn’t been back “to” a Miller’s Ale House. No particular reason, just hadn’t been back!

Long story short, this past Monday- Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Son Jeff Eats and Daughter Jeff Eats ate dinner at the Miller’s Ale House on Yamato Road in Boca Raton- and I gotta tell you, we had an absolutely great-time. Rather than bother you guys telling you -that this location has a separate bar area/booth/table seating, more flat screen tvs than you can count, a covered out door patio with its own bar, a menu loaded with appetizers- burgers- salads-wings- entrees- desserts- beers- booze…let me tell you that the fried calamari, chicken Caesar salad, chicken nachos, breaded boneless garlic wings, grilled teriyaki wings, bbq baby back ribs, bacon cheeseburger, onion rings, French fries that we ordered were all delicious.

Look! I don’t know about your family, but getting the members of Jeff Eats’ immediate family to agree on virtually anything- is a monumental task. With that in mind, last night-all four of us agreed that the food killed, that the prices were super reasonable and that the service was as competent/pleasant as could be!

As I mentioned a few seconds ago, Jeff Eats hadn’t been to a Miller’s Ale House in something like 7 1/2 years! All I can tell you guys- the joint was absolute dynamite! If the other 71 Miller’s are like the Yamato Road outpost- you now know about a sports bar “chain” that really has its act together- and is an absolute must try!

Miller’s Ale House is open Sunday 11am-midnight, Monday-Saturday 11am-2am.

Posted on July 12th, 2008
***** Miller’s Jupiter Ale House, 126 Center Street, Jupiter, Florida 33458 (561) 746-7620

Miller’s owns and operates a “ton” and I do mean a “ton” of sports-bars/ale houses in South Florida. Check millersalehouse.com for locations/menu/prices/hours.

Miller’s joints all take on a local name…in Boca Raton, the joint is the Boca Ale House…in Jupiter the joint is the Jupiter Ale House…in Coral Springs the joint is the Coral Springs Ale House…so on and so forth.

Over the years, I have eaten in a number of Miller’s South Florida locations…my most recent meal being in the Jupiter Ale House 3 weeks ago. All of the Ale Houses look alike…big bar area, tvs galore, small game room, wood booths. The menus are the same…tons of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches and entrees…something for everybody. Just so you know, the food is okay- not great…(operative word) OKAY… The prices are cheap…that’s the game…like a 20 oz. bone-in porterhouse steak with french fries for something like 10 bucks.

I have to tell you, that every so often, I really enjoy a grizzly-steak covered in grilled onions and french fries drenched in ketchup that costs $9.99…Sort of reminds me of Tad’s Broiled Steaks (you- New Yorkers know what I am talking about) circa 1960.

The Ale Houses are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Like I said, okay food priced perfectly.

By the way…some of you may not know, but Tad’s Broiled Steaks currently has a location at 152 West 34th Street, New York, New York 10001 (212) 630-0318…those were the days.

***** Great Value Caramel Coconut & Fudge Cookies.

These rat bastard cookies are one of the main reasons why Jeff Eats will not be able to fit in his tuxedo this coming Saturday- Night, May 6, 2017 for a Black Tie Wedding- that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are scheduled to attend in Aventura, Florida!

Three days ago, the pictured package and four of its brethren- cost Jeff Eats $1.88 a piece- at the Walmart Supercenter, 16205 South Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484.

Long story short- Jeff Eats was weak, all five packages are long gone and the cookies were absolutely delicious!

By the way, for the uneducated, Great Value- is Walmart’s “house-brand.”

Pizza Bar (Miami Beach)

***** Pizza Bar, 1627 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, (305) 672-6880.

For all you guys out there looking for off the chart delicious New York Style Pizza (thin crispy crust, sweet sauce, loads of gooey cheese, oil drip when the slice is pointed down) you gotta checkout- Pizza Bar in Miami Beach.

Menu/prices/info at pizzabar.com.

Long story short, last night- Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats tried this joint and it blew us away. No bs- Pizza Bar’s pizza easily matched up against some of the best New York slices we’ve “enjoyed” over the past 60+ years in the 5- boroughs!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats also “did” a Greek salad and like the pizza it- was right on the money!

By the way, Pizza Bar’s wings and subs looked dynamite- so Jeff Eats is kinda thinking that Pizza Bar isn’t just a one trick pony- with the pizza! The next time Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are at Pizza Bar, we’ll do some wings and subs, so we’ll know for sure!

Subs or no subs, wings or no wings- based on its pizza alone- Pizza Bar is an absolute must try!
