Broiled grapefruit makes for an easy, healthy, and bright breakfast. You'll love the addition of cinnamon and honey.
Bachelor living does not sentence you to meals of cold cereal and canned soup. They absolutely have their place and the cans of chicken noodle soup will often confirm their very important existence. However, living on your own also means making whatever your little heart desires AND getting your practice in for that inevitable day where meals for one will turn into meals for two.
Here’s a little known fun fact: Eating a grapefruit is a weekend thing to do. While it doesn’t take long to prepare, it’s something to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea while catching up on some Netflix. Weekends are all about hitting the snooze button without guilt and the human body waking up when the time is right.
And since you have more time on the weekend without having to rush around, there is time to pop your breakfast under the broiler! An apple stuffed with oats or a grapefruit drizzled with honey and sprinkled with a dash cinnamon is a wonderful treat. But when it’s placed under the broiler, something magical happens, it gets colour, character and even a bit of sophistication.
The honey and cinnamon combined with heat lessens the bitterness of the grapefruit. The honey adds to the juice of the grapefruit while still retaining the refreshing nature it’s known for. And do not forget about squeezing those last remaining juices on to the spoon. If you are by yourself, slurping is permitted!
So treat yourself to broiled grapefruit on the weekend and leave the cereal in the cupboard for Monday.
