In some medical traditions, practitioners say to avoid raw fruits because of their cooling effect and high fructose content. But citrus fruits supply vitamin C, an anti­oxidant known for its ability to defend the body against colds. Pink grapefruit also supplies a fair amount of another antioxidant, beta-carotene—the redder the fruit, the more beta-carotene it contains.

•2 pink grapefruit
•2 teaspoons fresh thyme

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
