grapefruit :: my new love

When did this sweet and juicy little morsel become so good? As a Texan, I've spent a lifetime around Texas and Ruby Reds; yet their yummy factor has suddenly climbed to a different level for me.

With zero fat, a grapefruit a day can actually speed weight loss. Not too shabby! The acidity is said to slow digestion (it takes longer to move through your system), making you feel fuller longer. I've decided I prefer my grapefruit entirely peeled--like an orange--rather than the usual cut-in-half, sectioned method. Much less frustrating.

Oh yeah ... I've also heard something about pairing this super cute fruit with vodka ....
