My life changed when I ate grapefruit

As a child, I watched my grandfather eat grapefruit regularly. Eager to be like him, I requested to taste it, and hated it. What was wrong with the man?

A decade and some change later, I’d drastically changed the way I ate to manage my migraines. Processed foods had become a decreasing part of my diet, while natural foods became the foundation, so my taste completely changed. While perusing the grocery store for new foods, I found myself staring at a grapefruit.

Hmmm…

I decided to give it a go.  After all, who knew what would happen?

The next morning I was in for a shocking surprise. I didn’t like it; I loved it. That was six years ago and grapefruit has since become a staple.

When’s the last time you tried something new or something you long ago decided you didn’t like? Your tastes change, if you let them. Expand your palette for life.

  1. Great read!

    I’ve had the opportunity to try things I would have never imagined myself trying not too long ago. Some of them are only ok, but others have become foods that I grave on a regular basis. (Who knew!?)

    Expanding your horizons is now, and forever will be, the way to go. I’m happy for you!

  2. I just started eating (ruby red) grapefruit (NO SUGAR!) since I’ve been on my quest for shiny skin and a flat torso, lol. I could never stomach it without an excessive amount of sugar that damn near made the grapefruit obsolete but now I eat them whole and natural. I found myself waking up this morning and a frown on my face when I realized I had no more grapefruits in the fridge.
