Grail frit Good Against Diabetes, Weight Gain

Perhaps those grapefruit diets weren't so strange after all.

Science Blog - Eating Grapefruit Really Does Help Weight Loss

Apparently, grapefruit can help your body control your glucose levels better. That's great news for those of us who love the stuff. I eat about 5 oranges a day. Time to switch to the other readily available citrus?

(BTW - "Grail frit" is a reference to a comedy series. Anyone recognize it?)

[Update: it should probably be "gralefrit."]

Reminds me of Black Adder, but probably isn't.

Aww, Manuel.

I just watched the whole series a month ago - I can't believe I didn't remember that. Now I guess I'll just have to watch it all again. :-)

At least I guessed something British. :)

Fawlty Towers it is indeed!

It's a typo on the menu in the episode "A Touch Of Class."

Now that I think of it, gralefrit is a more plausible misspelling.

Approximately 70% of the time, you'll hear the citrus fruit referred to as a "gralefrit" in our house.

I got a green gralefrit at the store a few weeks ago. Some weird Mexican variety, I think, and I think it is supposed to be sweet. Hopefully not too sweet. I keep forgetting to try it.

I did a google search, and found this nice recipe for gralefrit. Supposedly it is grilled, but it sounds more to me like broiled. Maybe the person is Australian and just has it upside-down. Actually, where is Christmas Island? That's where the person claims to be from.

Uh, anyway... on with the recipe.
