1/04/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal : Monday

During the fall, I ate boatloads of apples.  I still enjoy the 'crispies' now, but I have a new flavor craving; grapefruit.  They are juicy, and ripe right now.  The peak season is from January to April.  I get them at a wholesale warehouse and I eat them everyday.  The fiber content and high  water content helps me feel full longer and I enjoy the flavor.

Many people slice them in half and eat them with a grapefruit spoon ( I used to eat them with honey, or people sprinkle sugar on them.  One of the benefits of the clean eating plan is the increase in my taste buds; therefore I feel that I don't need to cover this fruit in sugar or honey to enjoy it- this lowers the calorie count on it).

Pink and red varieties have vitamin A and all varieties have vitamin C.  The most popular Florida varieties are Ruby Red, Marsch White, and Flame. 

Try grapefruit, and remember throw yummy they are.
