A Quick And Healthy Breakfast

I don’t always eat healthy….at all!!!  I LOVE junk food!!  Chocolate is my main problem.  But I do try and keep everything in moderation.  I do have some “no way I’m ever eating that…no matter how good the PACKAGE makes it look” rules and I try not to break those.  Breakfast is always a tough meal for me.  I never know what to eat.  I don’t want a large meal but I do like for breakfast to be somewhat sweet.  I like yogurt but sometimes I’m a little fickle about the texture.  So I may eat yogurt today and hate it tomorrow.  Weird, I know!!  Today I had one of my favorite things for breakfast!!  And it’s SWEET and HEALTHY!!  A perfect balance for me!!  Grapefruit with a tiny bit of sugar.  *sigh*Halve your grapefruit and sprinkle the top with about a teaspoon of sugar.  You could certainly do more but we’re trying for healthy here right!?  I love this raw sugar because the crystal is larger than regular fine sugar and it adds a little crunch.

Then place them on a baking sheet and pop’em under the broiler until the sugar starts to bubble.  WATCH them because you know that broiler likes to burn things.  So it only takes a minute or two.  Serve it with a slice of peanut butter toast.  YUMMY!!  The sugar just helps to take the edge off of the tartness from the grapefruit.  You only see one half here on my plate….that’s because Ruthie had a plate just like this for herself.  This delicious and healthy breakfast along with a GREAT devotional given from a friend was an AWESOME start to my day!!  What did you have for breakfast this morning?

Is it bad that I put salt on my grapefruit?!? :)

I love grapefruit! I eat it with a tiny bit of sugar too. I just bought some grapfruit spoons that have serrated sides and are slighly pointed. I never waste a drop now.
