Grapes and Grapefruit Salad - Breakfast on "G" Day


Well we arrived to "G" day!

It's breakfast time and I'm using GRAPES and GRAPEFRUITS

I made Grapes and Grapefruit salad. I couldn't use grapes without incorporating the mighty grapefruit also! These fruits go deliciously well and mixed with additional fruit, it becomes a satisfyingly savoury breakfast. Pair this with whole grain toast and eggs if you want to, also.   Yummy!



Servings: 1

Ingredients

Small handful of red seedless grapes
1/2 grapefruit, sectioned
1/2 apple, diced
1/2 orange, sectioned
1 banana, sliced
1 tsp lemon juice (to prevent from browning)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!




GRAPES

The several phytonutrients in grapes are believed to play a role in our longevity. Grapes have also been shown to contain the hormone and antioxidant melatonin, that have anti-bacterial and other properties.

The massive areas of benefit from grapes include the cardiovascular system, respiratory, immune and inflammatory systems, blood sugar regulating, the nervous system and cancer prevention - WOW!

GRAPEFRUIT

Grapefruit is an excellent source of Vitamin C. The phytonutrients in grapefruit called limonoids inhibit tumor growth. Grapefruit contains pectin which has been shown to slow down the progression of atherosclerosis (in animal studies).

Check with your Doctor first, as certain pharmaceutical drugs combined with grapefruit become more potent.
