food,blog,january 2009

my citrus obsession continues as i squirt fresh ruby red juice onto my spoon.
ooh, they're so fresh, tart and delicious!
i've decided to take advantage their abundance while they are in season.
i didn't realize these marvelous beauties have caner fighting phytochemicals and are also found to reduce cholesterol.
it's been a long time since i'd eaten one and i've forgotten how much i love them!
i also didn't know that certain citrus flavonoids exhibit anti-inflammatory effects as well. these pink pearls are also doted as a secret weight-loss weapon & superfood. they are high in fiber and have a low glycemic load.
oh, and i can't fail to mention that a half a grapefruit only has 39 calories!

go grapefruit!

  1. Love a good grapefruit in the morning! My mom always ate them when we were growing up & I always thought they were so gross! They have grown on me over time & I think I'll have to pick up a few soon...you convinced me! :) It was great seeing you today, we will all have to get together again soon!
