Grapefruit Power Food

I never thought I liked grapefruit, that is, until my husband bought some a while back. Then, I became interested in this strange citrus fruit he found so much joy in eating! So, he let me have a taste and it was great! I discovered I actually really like it! I also discovered the neatest way to prepare a grapefruit, which also leads to the neatest way to eat it. So, I thought I would share my method as it is different from the “cut in half, dump a load of sugar on it, & eat with a spoon” method.

Use a cutting board and a serrated knife.

Make a cut like this “/” on one side of the core, and a cut like this “\” on the other to make a “V” which cuts out the core strip. Then use your knife to dig out any seeds.

Cut the cored grapefruit half in half.

Then arrange on a little plate and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of sugar if you plan on having 2 of these bad boys in a day. The reason being, 1 teaspoon of sugar is 0 WW points. Or you could use the whole teaspoon of sugar to sprinkle over them.
