Ahhh... Grapefruit! How I love you sooo! My farmers market is overflowing with these beauties right now and I am having lots of fun getting creative with them. Juicing, eating alone, or adding to salads, the possibilities are endless & so are the health benefits!! Here are a few: •Weight loss–Grapefruit is high in enzymes that burn fats, has high water content and has less sodium. A combination of these three characteristics make grapefruit a perfect food for increasing your body's metabolism. •Prevents Arthritis and Works as an Antiseptic–Grapefruit contains salicylic acid which aids in arthritis prevention and treatment as well as working as a powerful antiseptic! •Red and pink varieties contain lycopene which have been shown to help in cancer prevention and treatment.
I could go on and on about the many benefits! Grapefruit is in its prime this time of year so go to your local farmers market end get yourself some!! Xoxo
