Grapefruit is a rich source of vitamin C and A, folate, vitamin B6, thiamin, magnesium, calcium and phytonutrients. Grapefruit also provides dietary fiber, increases the body’s metabolic rate, lowers insulin levels and gives you a feeling of fullness.
Arugula contains glucosinates, which offer antioxidant benefits and enzymes that can aid in detoxification. Arugula is also a good source of fiber, vitamins A, B6, C, and K, calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and potassium.
Avocado is one of the top five healthiest foods on the planet (in our opinion). There are very few other foods that are jam-packed with so many essential nutrients. Avocados are rich in healthy fat, fiber and phytochemicals.
