Honey Grapefruit with Banana - Salad

Here comes a tangy tropical fruit salad, ideal for breakfast or as a side dish at the brunch. Grapefruit is one of the popular and best foods for weight loss, perhaps due to the effect it has on insulin, a fat-storage hormone it seems to be helpful.

It gives a filling experience. It has one of the highest water concentrations as compared with any other fruit. 

About 90% of its weight is water. All that juice fills you up fast and prevents you from 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


Preparation: 5 minutes.


* Drain the 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.
