The Greatness of Grapefruit
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      12 comments

I didn't use to like grapefruits. I thought they were too sour. If I ate them, I would usually coat them with brown sugar or honey. Over the years, I've adjusted my palate to less sugar. I eat refined sugars once in a blue moon. I use s... Read more
