Mighty Grapefruit

Grapefruit is one of the most delicious types of fruit but also houses some of the worlds greatest nutrients. along with many health benefits. Grapefruit promotes appetite control, is low in calories but high in nutrients and can help prevent insulin resistance (Health line, 2017). The high levels of fibre grapefruit contains is able to slow digestion as  fibre partially clogs the digestive track, thereby decreasing appetite. Grapefruit also only has 50 calories per serving but holds 64% of your daily Vitamin C requirements as seen in the table below. One published study has shown that people who ate half a grapefruit before a meal resulted in a reduction of both insulin and insulin resistance. Grapefruit may look innocent but is powerful when it comes to nutrients and health.

Putting a few slices of grapefruit into your yoghurt will enhance its taste by adding a zesty flavour, whilst also adding a spot of colour as garnish.

It may seem strange but adding grapefruit to your salad will greatly enhance its flavour by adding a sweat and sour twist.

 

Like grapefruit the Bible may seem just like another ordinary book but it is filled with life and power. As mentioned in 2 Timothy 3:16:

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
