why i love baked grapefruit

There’s nothing better than fruit in the morning. Well, maybe pancakes. Or waffles. Or cinnamon rolls. Okay, so maybe there is a lot better than fruit in the morning. BUT, you can’t eat breakfast packed with sugar and flour every morning. The best thing about fruit for breakfast, you ask? It’s sweet AND good for you. Not only does this recipe only take a couple of minutes to prepare and finish, but it’s healthy! A healthy breakfast no doubt helps you prepare for the day and feel ready to tackle anything. Waffles may be my favorite, but when I have a belly full of waffles I don’t particularly feel up to anything. I honestly feel more like going back to bed. So start your day the healthy way, with a tasty baked grapefruit!
