Good morning, Beautiful! It's time to rise and shine, and welcome the day ahead with a great big smile. It's going to be a good day. I can just feel it. You're going to take on the world. Because with a breakfast like this, you can do anything. Today, we're having broiled grapefruit.

If you're anything like me, then you're stuck in a grapefruit rut. Is your go-to way of eating this juicy, ruby red fruit to simply slice it in a half and scoop out the flesh with your spoon? Yeah, me too. I'd never even thought to cook my grapefruit.

Grapefruit is one of those fruits that I often forget about. I walk right by those big yellow globes in the grocery store all the time. I don't even give them a second look. But on my weekly trip to Trader Joe's, they caught my eye. They sparkled, like little balls of sunshine, and I just couldn't resist. I scooped some up, planning to have one the next morning.

As I was slicing my grapefruit in half, I realized that I needed something more. This pretty pink fruited needed a little spice. It's such an easy meal; it could use a little extra something. More than just a boring sprinkle of sugar (or stevia).

I turned to Pinterest, as I usually do for a little recipe inspiration, and found a bunch of recipes for broiled grapefruit. I never thought to cook my grapefruit before, but let me just tell you, this is a revelation. Warm, sweet and juicy, this was one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. I sprinkled mine with a little vanilla and almond extract, cinnamon and topped it with stevia. Simply scrumptious.

Happy Tuesday!
