Now is the time to enjoy the bounty of fresh ripe citrus that is flooding the produce section of your grocery!
One of my personal favorites is pink grapefruit, which have the added bonus of lycopene, the same carotenoid that gives watermelon, guava, tomatoes, blood and cara cara oranges their pinky red color.
My preferred way to eat them is to scrub their rinds with a brush and some soapy water, rinse.
Then cut in half, lay the cut side down on the cutting board, make a cut dividing it in two, then make three cuts at right angle so I have quarters slices of yummy fruit to just bite right off the rind.
A caveat about grapefruit... its notorious for interfering with certain medications, so make sure you Google your medication, to see if there are any interactions before eating them or having a glass of their juice. No interactions with thyroid hormone medications, so no worries there.
