Who cares about my purse, right?
Stupid title, I know. Even worse image. See below:
However, I get asked a lot what I eat… or what I feed the family…which is the reason for this blog.
What I keep in my purse. Most days.
No, not because I dabble in the shenanigans of the grapefruit diet. That’s just madness.
And the My Foodie Call household does not diet, we eat clean. Or clean-ish. I have a soft spot for Menchies. Can’t believe they closed.
Anyhow, I keep this baby in my purse because yes, it’s super good for you. It lowers cholesterol and is loaded with antioxidants, etc. We know….
Those things are great and all, but this grapefruit is my vitamin C “insurance”.
Loads of vitamin C that you just can’t get from orange juice. As everyone knows, vitamin C boosts immunity (a good thing in the winter months), but in addition to this, the vain part of me likes my vitamin C it for those wrinkles that seem to be creeping up as I approach 40. Sigh. C’est la vie.
So this is my “effort”. Eat clean for health and vanity. 🙂
Yes, there are plenty of times when I am just not feeling my lonely “purse grapefruit” and would much rather a Luna bar, but the vitamin C from the grapefruit builds collagen, collagen production reduces wrinkles…you see where this is going?
In short, when I’m not feeling it?
The vain side of me says, “Eat your damn grapefruit!”
and you should too.
