Lisa Faulkner’s Florida Grapefruit Recipes

Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner says, ‘Add a little Florida sunshine to your day with these delicious recipes.’

Not only is grapefruit tasty and refreshing, it is also fat-free – and half a Florida grapefruit contains just 60 calories.

Other health benefits of Florida grapefruit: it is cholesterol-free; it is high in fibre to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, assist with digestion, and may help reduce your risk of colorectal cancer; it’s loaded with vitamin C – half a grapefruit or an 8oz glass of grapefruit juice provides at least 100% of your daily vitamin C intake.
