Traditionally I have Lemon in my tea because of all the benefits and now I really enjoy the taste of lemon water. When I started following the Tone It Up girls and their program, I have learned a little bit more about grapefruit and their benefits. After my vacation of eating whatever I wanted, being in an airport and on a plane, Grapefruit is the way I am going to go.
Grapefruit has great fat burning enzymes, is packed with vitamins C, A, B complex, E and K, and contains Naringin that balances your blood sugar levels. I had no idea it did all this!! Who wouldn’t want all of this in a tasty fruit after a vacation??? I try to keep it in my diet throughout the year.
I end up mixing up my tea now and switching between Lemon and Grapefruit or even combining them! I will either squeeze the organic fruits into my tea or I will use a drop of my Young Living Lemon essential oil or my Young Living Grapefruit essential oil. Right now in the winter, I prefer to make this tea in the morning but I do like to put these into cold water as well. When I mix them into water I find they help wake me up and give me a little tiny bit of energy. Which is obviously needed with a toddler!!
Below is a link to some information about Grapefruits in case you would like to read about them.
I hope you enjoy this fruit and mixing up your fruit teas!
