The Juicy Scoop on Florida Grapefruit


Sure it's easy to find fresh seasonal fruit under the summer sun, but did you know that winter is the best season for citrus? Gorgeous grapefruit from Florida are tumbling into supermarket produce sections and ready for you to section into breakfast bowls, over dinner salads, over yogurt and even as a wonderfully sweet and tart dessert. Cut juicy pink grapefruit in half and run under the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize the natural sugars in Florida grapefruit. Refreshing Florida grapefruit tastes like sunshine and not only brightens up winter taste buds; it offers a terrific source of vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber.
One-half of a medium Florida grapefruit contains only 60 calories. With fewer than 100 calories per 8-ounce serving, grapefruit juice contains fewer calories than many commonly-consumed 100 percent fruit juices. It's the juice you want for weight control!!
Not only is it peak grapefruit season, but February is National Grapefruit Month, so here are some delicious ideas for infusing the fresh flavors of Florida grapefruit and 100 percent grapefruit juice into meals and snacks.

Delicious on its own, grapefruit also pairs perfectly with a number of foods to provide added flavor and nutrients to your favorite dishes, making a tasty addition to citrus salsas, salads and post-workout smoothies. Here are some ideas to add tangy sweetness to your meals:

• Toss grapefruit segments into a shrimp stir fry to add a punch of tangy flavor and great texture.
• Reach for grapefruit segments as a topping for cereal, waffles, pancakes, or in a low-fat yogurt parfait.
• Bake half of a medium Florida grapefruit with a topping of brown sugar for a twist on the traditional breakfast treat.
• Marinate chicken in grapefruit juice for zesty, mouth-watering flavor.
• Freeze grapefruit juice in ice pop holders for a nutritious frozen treat.
• Prepare salad dressing with grapefruit juice instead of vinegar for a citrus flavor burst.
To learn more about the health and nutrition benefits of grapefruit and 100 percent grapefruit juice, check out the new Florida grapefruit Facebook page and application, “Juicy Scoop.” http://www.facebook.com/juicyscoop

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established
blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

I do trust all the ideas you've presented in your post. They're really convincing and
can certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for starters.
Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails
with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove
me from that service? Thanks a lot!

Ultimately jewelry software can help you with all the side
in the business that is commonly left to last and for someone else to deal with due to you being too occupied with all the inspirational side of things.
Even in those very early times, the necessity for humans to use
ornaments is evident. A magical look for an evening wedding
would be to light your chuppah.

It is very likely that a lawyer or attorney who specializes in criminal cases as dealt with these types of cases many times in the past and has become a lawyer that only works with these types of court cases.
They're portrayed as kids in their parents'
basement hacking into weird 3D objects on their CRT screen or live lavishly
in grand penthouses with expensive tastes, occasionally hacking
into systems using the latest and greatest in technology
with 9 screens attached. It is human tendency to
look out for the easiest option available, especially in stressful situations.

Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
