Stay Healthy This Cold and Flu Season: Baked Grapefruit

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.
