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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
