  1. I plan on making this very soon

  2. Hi, George. Alternatives to grapefruit vary according to the recipe. In this one here, you can substitute lemon juice, and that would be fine.
    Regarding peanut oil, we do not recommend it, as it is high in omega-6 fatty acids, of which the amounts are too high in the modern western diet. We favor extra-virgin olive oil, nut oils such as almond, hazelnut, or macadamia, and even chia, flax, and avocado oils.

  3. I’m a transplant patient and due to the meds I take, I can’t have any grapefruit product. Can you recommend an alternative. Also, I’ve a question regarding oils for cooking. Can you comment on peanut oil?
    Best!

  4. Fresh citrus is always the best option!

  5. Can you use Lemon Juice from a fresh lemon instead?

  6. It says to use grapefruit juice, But in the introduction it said don’t use Juice. Are you suppose to squeeze the grapefruit juice yourself from the whole fruit?
