It’s super cold, the days are shorter, and the New Year’s Resolutions have begun! Every year, like most others, one of my own resolutions is to eat more healthfully. For me this means eating more veggies and fruit, including citrus fruits, which right now are in season, abundant and budget-friendly!
One fruit I love is grapefruit, but only red grapefruit, which I typically put sugar on to take off the sour edge. Well, now there are Wonderful Sweet Scarletts, a new brand of Texas Red Grapefruits launched nationwide last year from the people who brought you Wonderful Pistachios, POM Wonderful and Wonderful Halos. And Wonderful Sweet Scarletts are so sweet, you won’t even need to add sugar!
The Texas climate yields the sweetest premium red grapefruits around. Not only is this grapefruit sweet, but half a grapefruit is only 60 calories and provides 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C.
Plus, Wonderful Sweet Scarletts just partnered with actress, author and host of Cooking Channel’s The Real Girl’s Kitchen, Haylie Duff!
Haylie Duff has come up with some awesome recipes, from Wonderful Sweet Scarletts Tropical Grapefruit Salad to Wonderful Sweet Scarletts BBQ Chicken Skewers and more! Below is a sample of the recipes, which you can click to download and print them all, or click here!
I was sent some grapefruit to try and I enjoyed them with my breakfast and as a healthful snack!
