When you bite into a piece of grapefruit, you know it! The distinct tartness of this fruit isn’t easily missed, and is very likely something you either love or hate. So, we have 2 challenges this week: first, discover new great go-to recipes that include grapefruit (and go beyond the usual breakfast routine), and, second, eat a piece of grapefruit with a straight face
Whether or not you appreciate the kick in the taste buds, there is no denying that learning to love grapefruit is a worthwhile endeavor. It is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants for your immune system, along with properties that lower your cholesterol. For the highest amount of health benefits, reach for the pink ones, and aim to buy citrus that feels heavier than it looks (because they have more juice!)
Here are the recipes that Laura and I are going to put to the test this week:
- Grapefruit Chicken Satay Salad
- Grapefruit Brulee
- Spiced Turkey with Avocado-Grapefruit Relish (Heck yes!)
As usual, we are on the search for go-to recipes that include grapefruit. Have an easy, delicious recipe that includes this ingredient of the week? Please share below!
