    Spiced Ruby Red Grapefruit Salad

    Give retro broiled grapefruit the morning off and make a robust citrus salad instead. Ginger, lime, and black pepper perk up sweet-sour-bitter pink grapefruit segments for a sophisticated side for breakfast in bed. The best part: this recipe’s core ingredient is ultra heart-healthy. Women who eat grapefruit as part of a healthy diet may see higher HDL (good) cholesterol, as well as lower triglycerides and C-reactive protein.

    Sleep-in option
