Why Are Grapefruit Worth Celebrating?
Why would you not celebrate grapefruit? But seriously, grapefruit are excellent for your health. They come in all sorts of varieties and range from acidic and bitter to sweet and tart. Ours, however, survive the windy South Texas winters, giving them their exclusive sweetness that most other types of grapefruit lack. They’re also a great source of nutrients and vitamins, packing vitamin A and C, fiber, potassium, and antioxidants while still tasting delicious!
Grapefruit have also been shown to reduce cholesterol. Heck, they’re so healthy there’s even a diet named after them! The “grapefruit diet” relies on the fruit’s low glycemic index to help the body’s metabolism burn fat. Grapefruit truly are a superfood!
How Should You Celebrate?
Digging into a sweet, juicy Winter Sweetz Texas red grapefruit may be the simplest way to celebrate this month, but there are so many other ways to commemorate this wonderful fruit:
- Add Grapefruit to Your Diet – In keeping with our health-conscious theme, the first way to celebrate National Grapefruit Month would be to incorporate more of these sweet delights into your diet. Simply taking advantage of the nutrition and metabolism boost of a juicy grapefruit while eating other nutritious foods can bring a bevy of benefits to your mind and body.
- Throw a Grapefruit-Themed Party – There are lots of fun ways to decorate and party with our Texas red grapefruit. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, red, white, and pink would make an excellent color scheme or dress code for your party. Serve our Texas red grapefruit and other grapefruit-related food and drinks, and party games are always a great way to liven up a celebration, especially with a Winter Sweetz grapefruit basket as a prize!
- Enhance Your Spa Day With Grapefruit – Is there any better way to treat yourself than with a spa day? We think not. Grapefruit peel oil smells great and can be used in aromatherapy. You can also use grapefruit juice in face masks to shrink pores, but be careful to balance the grapefruit with other ingredients. Grapefruit juice can also be used to reduce cellulite and water retention. Overall, a grapefruit-infused scrub would make an excellent addition to your spa day.
