Citrus Inspired Clean-eating Healthy Diet Resolutions

(NC) The New Year brings an opportunity to inaugurate a fresh, clean diet. But forget trendy diets du jour, and look instead to simple, easy to find citrus as a low-calorie, fat burning option.

Citrus fruit like lemons, oranges, grapefruit and pummelos contain fat-burning enzymes that promote digestion while enhancing the flavour of other ingredients. In addition, they are rich in vitamin C which speeds up the metabolism and eliminates toxins from the body.

Try these nutritious recipes featuring citrus to get your daily dose of vitamin C.
