One of my goals this year is to add in more fresh fruits and veggies in my diet. I have a bad habit that when I get hungry, I have a tendency to reach for the boys’ snacks. As a way to make a change, I decided to put a fruit bowl next to the snack canisters on my kitchen counter. As long as I keep the bowl full, I go for the good stuff! This week I have a bunch of Florida Grapefruits piled up in the bowl – yum!
Besides the fact that they taste amazing, fresh Florida Grapefruit is only 60 calories per serving, is a good source of fiber and is fat free. Plus, one-half of a medium Florida grapefruit or one serving of 100% Florida grapefruit juice is an excellent sources of vitamin C. By grabbing that grapefruit, I am satisfying my need to snack plus giving my body great nutrition!
Instead of a sugary soda, a quick squeeze of a big Florida Grapefruit yields the most amazing juice. No need for the diet drinks and sodas, 100% Florida Grapefruit Juice has fewer than 100 calories per 8 oz. serving. You get great taste without all those artificial ingredients and empty calories.
While they are great as is, you can also whip up some incredible recipes with Florida Grapefruit. I love a good Grapefruit Guacamole Salsa – it is so fresh and would be an awesome dip for your football party this weekend! Really the options are endless, you can find a ton of great recipes over on the Juicy Scoop Facebook page.
Even better, we have a new printable coupon that will help us fill the fruit bowl at a great price. Head over and grab a great printable coupon:
