    Whats so Great about Grapefruit?

    Let’s face it, As women we are always looking for the latest and greatest new way to stay healthy (and ways to look younger). Instead of spending thousands of dollars on products sometimes the easiest way to stay healthy is by changing our food intake. Women’s Health Associates of Oneida believes that one fruit that has many different benefits that can keep us healthy is Grapefruit!

    What’s so great about Grapefruit? 

    • Boost your metabolism: Consuming more citrus before meals can help you shed some pounds. Eating a grapefruit before a meal can help you feel less hungry. Grape fruits are a natural hunger reducer.  The fruit’s compounds help aid in fat burning, stabilizing blood-sugar and insulin levels. 
    • Heart healthy: Grapefruit helps protects your heart by lower cholesterol levels and triglycerides. Having a grapefruit for breakfast daily is a great way to start your day with high levels of antioxidants. 
    • Flawless Skin: Adding grapefruit to your diet can help your skin looking smoother and in top shape. The high level of vitamin C can help produce a healthy collagen that keeps your skin plump and smooth and you looking younger 😉

     

    I’ve purchase my grapefruit …now how do I eat it? 

    The best way to eat a grapefruit is at room temperature. Cut it half and add a little sprinkle of sugar or salt for taste. And dig in with a spoon!

    Add grapefruit into a spinach salad for an healthy refreshing lunch!
