Make sure you remove pesticides from your lemons. To do so, fill a large bowl with 4 parts water to 1 part plain white vinegar. Soak the lemons along with other veggies or fruit you'd like to clean in the mixture for 20 minutes. Rinse the fruit or vegetables well with water.
For full control of all ingredients, I recommend you make your own coconut whipped cream. Use this easy recipe to do so. You can use swerve for a sugar-free version! “Native Forest” is a good brand. It is organic and actually labeled as coconut cream.
When purchasing your protein powder, take the time to review the ingredients and nutritional profiles of the product and try to stick with organic sources whenever possible. Here's a great guide that helps you chose your vegan protein powder!
