Sometimes, if you pay attention to your body, you can feel that you just need a particular food. For the past few days, I had been feeling like I needed grapefruit juice, so this morning I went down to the kitchen, squeezed away, and ended up with the perfect glass of bright pink bittersweet juice. As a bitter food, it is helping to stimulate my digestion (today, “bitter” is a highly underused taste in our diets, which has so many benefits!). Packed with vitamin C, it is helping to boost my immunity. Grapefruit has also been shown to aid in weight loss. Finally, who can resist smiling at that bright pink colour. It truly uplifts the soul.
Why not skip the OJ and try grapefruit instead – variety is the spice of life. Your body will thank you!
(There is a potential problem with medications – grapefruit and meds don’t mix well, so if you are on medication, skip the grapefruit for now. If you want to know more about this, you can contact me at lemon holistic.)
