5 Surprising Ways to Work Fruit into Your Diet
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends about 2 cups a day, which means you can eat four small bananas...or try some of these easy tweaks to the foods you already eat.
Turn Grapefruit into a Heavenly Treat
Although you can broil halves of peaches and apricots with good results, the technique is even better with grapefruit, since the heat mellows the fruit's puckery quality just enough. It's also one of the quickest desserts (or hot breakfasts, if that's your thing) you can make. Preheat the broiler and position a rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Place grapefruit halves, cut sides up, on a baking sheet and sprinkle each with about a tablespoon of brown sugar. Cook four to eight minutes until the sugar is melted and bubbling. Eat warm, topped with a dollop of plain yogurt.
