Nutritious and Delicious Honeybells

By: The Hale Groves Team | On: | Category: Healthy Eating

Have you ever tried Honeybells? A Honeybell is a delicious citrus fruit that is a hybrid of a tangerine and a grapefruit. Honeybells are famous for their sweet taste, but most people don’t realize they are nutritional powerhouses. Because a Honeybell fruit is so sweet and juicy and delicious most people consider them to be a snack or a dessert comparable to candy or cookies but in reality Honeybells are very nutritious and will help you feel better and lose weight.

Like all citrus fruits Honeybell fruits are packed with Vitamin C and B Complex vitamins, which will boost your immune system and help your body fight off any germs or viruses that you come into contact with. The minerals in Honeybells like Magnesium are needed by your bones to stay strong and healthy and many people don’t get enough minerals in their diet. Minerals in vitamin supplements are not well absorbed by the body so even if you’re taking a multivitamin you’re probably not getting enough of the minerals you need. Two pieces of Honeybell fruit per day would give you most of the FDA recommended amount of those minerals in a delicious and healthy way.

Honeybells are also very low in calories. A medium sized Honeybell has less than 50 calories. Honeybells are very often served at holiday parties and dinners because they come into season in mid to late December, which means that if you’re watching your weight through the holiday season you can eat a Honeybell or two at a holiday party instead of indulging on cake and cookies and you won’t put on those holiday pounds that everyone else will be putting on. If you still want to have cookies or holiday treats eat one Honeybell and then a cookie or a piece of cake or a piece of pie.

Sweet Honeybells contain more than 2 grams of fiber per fruit, which will help you feel full. When you eat a Honeybell fruit before consuming a holiday treat you’ll eat less of the high calorie and high fat treat because the fiber in the Honeybell will make you feel full. Eating Honeybells can be the perfect strategy to enjoy your favorite holiday treats without going overboard and gaining weight or making yourself sick. Look for Honeybells at holiday parties and dinners or bring your own with you and have a delicious and nutritious snack.
