Dieting isn’t really a word I like to use.
Yes, I will be laying off the cookies for a while. And I’m certainly trying to load up my plate with extra fruits and vegetables these days. But I prefer to think that I’m making healthier choices for my body. And not necessarily depriving myself of the foods that I truly love.
Grapefruit always seems to be involved in some kind of new fad diet. Maybe it’s because their peak season coincides with the start of the new year, when dieting resolutions spike. But I’m not here today to push some kind of grapefruit-centric cleanse. I’m just here to tell you that you should be putting your grapefruit in the oven.
Baked Grapefruit is kind of a game changer. Especially on bitterly cold winter mornings. As much as I love grapefruit, I don’t particularly enjoy peeling and eating a big cold grapefruit when the temperatures outside are freezing. Just thinking about that makes me shiver! But a warm from the oven grapefruit, sweetened with just a hint of brown sugar, solves all my problems.
Baked Grapefruit is the perfect way to start a chilly morning. Or try one for a mid-day snack to help shake off any wintery blues that you might be suffering from.
