Grapefruit Creme Brûlée

I would like to apologise in advance for the deceiving title but these healthy foods sometimes really do require a little (or a lottle) dose of imagination!

When I was younger, I used to eat grapefruit with white sugar allthetime. I absolutely loved the sweet and sour (are you thinking of pork? Get off my page!) flavour combination – so good!

Perhaps, grapefruits are most well-known for their weight loss inducing abilities (don’t quote me on this). But seriously, they’re very low in sodium and very high in fat burning enzymes. This means, not only will grapefruits burn fat, but also help flush out excess water that is retained from high sodium diets. In short, if you ate a greasy big mac for dinner, wash it down with a detoxifying grapefruit breakfast the next day. The addition of coconut sugar not only creates a flavour explosion but also adds a teensy dose of vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium and zinc.

1 large grapefruit
1 tsp coconut sugar

Slice the grapefruit in half.

Sprinkle coconut sugar on top then immediately devour – it’s a no brainer, really.
