Grapefruits are a larger cousin to oranges. Both of these citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C which helps strengthen the immune system. A strong immune system can help your body ward off illness like the flu and colds. Grapefruit is also packed with antioxidants. In fact, pink or red grapefruit in particular contains the antioxidant lycopene which is shown to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. So ladies, get your hubbies to eat some grapefruit! The flavor is tart and tangy, but this recipe brings out its underlying sweetness!
