Grapefruit and Greens Energy Booster Salad! 

I love salads. I love getting creative and finding new thing to add to them. Particularly fruits and veggies that are in season. 

Lately, my favorite salad add-in has been grapefruit. I love, I mean, LOVE grapefruit! It’s my favorite of all the citrus fruits! It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sour.  High in vitamin C, grapefruit not only boosts the immune system and increases energy, but it also have amazing far burning properties! Yes, grapefruit can boost your metabolism! 

So today, I added some of this yummy super fruit to my salad. And squeezing the juice over top makes an amazingly delicious low fat dressing! 

  

Here is today’s salad recipe:

2 C Red Leaf lettuce

1 C shredded chicken 

1/2 cucumber, sliced

1/4 avocado, diced

1/4 diced onion

5-6 sliced strawberries

Bunch of grapes, sliced in half

One grapefruit, fruit wedges, sprinkle juice over top of salad

Sprinkle a little feta cheese on top

Toss and enjoy!
