Grapefruit with honey and cinnamon, a simple recipe of the therapeutic nutritionist Ana Estellés that helps us to maintain a healthy weight and to eliminate the excess of toxics.
The grapefruit stands out because it is very diuretic, which favors the elimination of excess water and this helps us to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. And not only that, this fruit also helps us to have better digestion.
On the other hand, grapefruit helps us to balance blood sugar levels, which is a fundamental point when it comes to weight loss, because if we keep our blood glucose levels controlled, we will avoid being so hungry between meals.
In addition, cinnamon has the same glucose-regulating effect and combines perfectly with the grapefruit’s acidity.
Grapefruit is also very rich in antioxidants, which are substances that help to stop the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are substances that our own organism generates, but are also produced by exposure to environmental toxics, tobacco, poor nutrition, etc. Therefore, the more we are exposed to these factors, the more free radicals our body will produce and the more antioxidants we will need.
Grapefruit has numerous antioxidants, including vitamin C and bioflavonoids such as hesperidin, rutin and quercetin. These substances are also able to increase the elasticity of the arteries and therefore they help us to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
¿What do we need?
- 1 grapefruit
- ½ teaspoon of honey (best raw)
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
At first, we will gradually remove all the grapefruit segments with a knife.
Then we will put a little honey on top, and we try to move the segments a bit with a spoon, so that they impregnate well with the honey.
After all, we sprinkle the cinnamon on the grapefruit segments to taste.
This simple recipe can be part of a delicious breakfast or it can be served as a healthy snack. Enjoy the benefits of grapefruit!
