Caramelized Grapefruit

g2
Winter is here in full force, making it difficult to find quality fruits, therefore increasing our vulnerability to unhealthy comfort foods. That’s why it’s perfect timing to overdose on winter’s bittersweet and citrus filled grapefruits. Whether you’re following a Paleo, low sugar, gluten free diet or are simply health conscientious, broiled grapefruit will become your new favorite dessert (think…crème brûlée substitute?!)

Packed with various antioxidants, vitamin C, and vitamin A, grapefruits are one of the most hydrating fruits in the world. According to The Scripps Clinic Grapefruit Diet study, compared to many other citrus fruits, grapefruits are proven to increase metabolic function leading to greater weight loss.

The deliciously unique tart taste of grapefruits makes them perfectly compatible with Siggi’s Greek yogurt, thick and creamy, high in protein and low in sugar. Sprinkle with two powerhouse spices, cinnamon and ginger, for some detox benefits that also taste delicious. Ginger is my go-to food for bloat busting purposes, as it works with the intestines to help release abdominal discomfort.  Incorporating a sweet and flavorful twist to a simple fruit will satisfy your undeniable post-meal sweet tooth, reduce bloating, all while spicing up your fruit game!
