Happy first day. Today was actually going to be mine but I decided to officially start tomorrow. So, if all goes well I will be one day behind you. Everything I have read discourages against both Grade A Maple Syrup and processed lemon or lime juice. I work and go to school and for today I mixed up 60 ounces last night and it really took no time at all. Grade B Maple and the naturalness of real lemon or lime juice is what is going to provide you with the vital nutrients. Let me know how your first day goes. good Luck!
