Eat & Watch: Eggs and Bacon & Love Story

Love Story 5

A few months ago, I finally watched the classic Love StoryI absolutely loved it and I adore Jenny, Ali MacGraw’s character. Jenny and Oliver together are an unstoppable couple, and their romance felt genuine and light. It is one of the best romantic movies I’ve seen. There are a couple of eating scenes in the movie, but this one stuck out to me because of how simple it is: eggs and bacon. There’s not even anything else on the plate. Plain, simple, and delicious. The recipe for this Eat & Watch? Simple: scramble two eggs and add salt and pepper; cook bacon. Voila! The next time you are having a lazy Sunday morning, cook up some eggs and bacon and fall in love all over again with Love Story.

Grapefruit Juice

Last week I became a big fan of grapefruit juice. It was my way of getting Vitamin C in a different form than orange juice and vitamins. I used to hate how acidic grapefruits tasted, but now I kind of love it. It has become a morning ritual to squeeze my own grapefruit juice, and enjoy every last sip! However, there are upsides and downsides to this delicious fruit juice. The upsides? There are an incredible amount of health benefits, some of which include: a good source of Vitamin C, energy boosts, reduces fever, relieves sore throats, promotes digestion. Check out this site to learn more about the great health benefits. The downsides? The acidity of the juice can interfere with certain medications you may be taking. Check out this interesting article on why you may want to avoid grapefruit juice.

If you are not a fan of grapefruits, ease into it slowly – you might change your mind. Or just stick with orange juice and green tea, which also have a lot of health benefits. Are you a fan of grapefruit juice?
