Grapefruit

The lovely grapefruit is often misunderstood because of it’s sourness, it is so good for you! The darker pink varieties are much sweeter, also you can try sprinkling it with cinnamon to ease some of the bitterness. Grapefruit is full of Vitamin C, has healthy fiber, is a great natural skin cleanser, and helps accelerate weight loss! I also clean my kitchen and bathroom sink with it, for that I cut it in half, sprinkle it with coarse salt, and scrub away, then rinse. It’s totally natural and smells great!
