So you're in the supermarket, making your way through the produce aisles, and nestled among the many types of oranges and citrus fruits, there it is - the grapefruit!
Grapefruit Recipes and Nutrition
Have you been steering clear of grapefruits, or are these colorful citrus fruits already part of your weekly menu? If you're stuck in a rut of eating the same oranges, apples, and bananas week after week, maybe it's time for you to branch out and try a new fruit!

Grapefruits are a relative of the orange - a sour citrus fruit that's packed with Vitamin C and fiber. The pink and red varieties of grapefruit also contain cancer-fighting lycopene (just like watermelons!).

Try eating one with your breakfast this week, for a bright way to start your day. Or try any of these yummy and inspiring ways to serve up more grapefruit this summer:
