This juice is one of my latest obsessions! If you’re not really into grapefruit, you may enjoy it this way. The cucumber balances out the tartness of the grapefruit juice. For added flavor you can add in mint leaves or even a banana.
Grapefruit is one of my personal superfoods. I love the way I feel after having one. Interesting enough, grapefruit is also listed on the American Institute for Cancer Research’s list of Foods that Fight Cancer.” Grapefruit has also been linked to aiding in weight loss & reducing cellulite!!!

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
