I went through a phase with two good friends where we ate red grapefruit ALL THE TIME. That was a super healthy phase in my life: everyday we ate grapefruit, spinach and cottage cheese for lunch and worked out together after work. Those were the days…what happened?!?! I’ll tell you what happened…TJ’s chocolate covered pretzels, that’s what.
While I may not eat grapefruit every day anymore, I still LOVE LOVE LOVE red, sweet grapefruits (and Ruby Red juice, which I can chug, chug, chug). As I was enjoying an especially tasty grapefruit today (even Cate ate a few pieces!), I decided I needed to share some pictures of it with you (yes, I went picture crazy today) as well as the most killer technique for eating it.
The BEST WAY EVER to eat a grapefruit:
1. Get yourself a red flesh grapefruit – sample varieties are Ruby, Rio, or Star.
3. Break it in half (the only reason it’s cut in my pictures was because it was pretty…you don’t have to cut it) and peel off the rind from the grapefruit flesh. The rind pretty much stays together while you peel off the flesh from each slice.
