Grapefruit

IMG_03395 reasons why you should start your day with a grapefruit:

  1. rich in vitamin C for the immune system
  2. high in antioxidants (lycopene), helping to prevent prostate and other cancers
  3. low GI and very low calorie
  4. helps reduce bouts of wheezing in asthma-prone people
  5. cholesterol-lowering properties

 

And generally all round tasty and refreshing!

Careful though, don’t eat if you are on medication for blood pressure – grapefruit can interfere with it
