Are you on diet? You can’t go wrong with this tasty salad, it is a perfect day starter. Grapefruit is one of the best foods for weight loss because of the effect it has on insulin, a fat-storage hormone. In addition grapefruit has one of the highest water concentrations of any fruit (about 90% of its weight is water), and all that juice fills you up fast and prevents overeating.
- 1 (24-ounce) jar refrigerated red grapefruit sections (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup sliced banana (about 1)
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint
- 1 tablespoon honey
Drain grapefruit sections, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Combine grapefruit sections, juice, and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss gently to coat. Serve immediately, or cover and chill.
