Stay Healthy This Cold and Flu Season: Baked Grapefruit

| September/October 1998

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.

Baked Grapefruit

•2 pink grapefruit
•2 teaspoons fresh thyme
•4 teaspoons honey

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Slice each grapefruit in half and remove the seeds.

3. Cut around the inside between the fruit and the pith, making sure not to puncture the skin.

4. Stir the thyme into the honey, and spread the mixture onto the grapefruit halves.

5. Place them in a glass baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
