Healthy Highlight: Grapefruit

Want to give your breakfast an extra punch? Add grapefruit – this bright, juicy orb is absolutely packed with health benefits. Like most citrus fruits, it’s high in vitamin C. It’s also an antioxidant powerhouse – both of these characteristics help boost immunity and prevent the free radical damage that triggers inflammation. 

Did you know it’s also good for your ticker? That’s right – one grapefruit a day can actually lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Oatmeal isn’t the only heart-healthy #breakfast option! Grapefruit can also help boost your metabolism since the fruit’s compounds aid in stabilizing blood sugar levels. There’s a reason grapefruits are the darling of the diet world!

Maximize grapefruit’s potential by pairing it with organic yoghurt or coyo – and pack some up with your salad for lunch!  Check out my recipe for this fabulous Ruby Grapefruit, Orange and Basil Salad.
