RECIPE BACKSTORY
After I wrote the post on lycopene earlier this week, I was in the mood for some pink grapefruit. I found a huge organic pink grapefruit at my favorite health food store, Westerly’s Natural Market, and decided to make a quick fruit salad for breakfast on Wednesday. We have fresh spearmint growing in our indoor herbal planter, so I took the chance to use some up. The smell of fresh mint is heavenly, especially in the morning.
