So how many of you enjoyed a broiled grapefruit this morning? Based on your comments last week, it seems I am not the only one who loves to eat grapefruit this way!
Ok, I know some of you are turning your nose up thinking…broiled grapefruit?!! Seriously, when I first saw the recipe – I thought it sounded odd too. A sprinkling of brown sugar caramelized on the bittersweet grapefruit is absolutely FANTASTIC! If you’ve never tried it, give it a go…I think you will be very pleased. Check out the recipe on the Juicy Scoop Facebook page - they have a ton of delicious ideas.
I have a little cold coming on so I decided that my body needed a little boost. One-half of a medium Florida grapefruit or one serving of 100% Florida grapefruit juice is an excellent sources of vitamin C. So, I killed two birds with one stone – a delicious breakfast with a little extra nutrition to help me nip this cold in the bud.
Besides the fact that they taste amazing, fresh Florida Grapefruit is only 60 calories per serving, is a good source of fiber and is fat free. We know that they make a great breakfast or a snack anytime throughout the day. Plus, grapefruit is a very versatile fruit and can be used in a variety of sweet and savory recipes. I loved that you guys shared so many options last week – I found some great recipes to try out. Speaking of recipes…I have a winner to announce!
