Grapefruit is goodDmitry Bunin/Shutterstock
Growing up in Phoenix, Arizona in a former grapefruit orchard, I never realized all the health benefits of grapefruit—and the potential dangers. When we moved into the house, I was about five years old and the property was home to 28 trees. You can imagine how many grapefruit halves I ate for breakfast over the years. My mom tried everything to use up the bazillions of grapefruit we harvested every winter, including a batch of grapefruit marmalade. Eventually, we donated the massive harvest to the food bank and other charity organizations—I only wish my mother had these delicious recipes back in those days!
