Ginger Honey Broiled Grapefruit

Feb 19, 2019

Are you a fan of grapefruit?  Or is it too sour for your liking?  ⁣⁣

If you’re not a fan try this ginger honey broiled grapefruit before you nix it out completely!

I must admit I’m usually partial to grapefruit.  Although drizzling it with some ginger honey and tossing toasted macadamia nuts on top totally wins me over!⁣

Typically I don’t try to force anyone to eat something they’re absolutely not a fan of.  Although I feel that when you prepare foods in different ways sometimes they take on a whole new flavor persona.  Since we are in prime grapefruit season I had to give it another go!

Plus grapefruit is rich in:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Antioxidants

The moral of the story do not like a certain food it’s okay not to eat it.  It’s also okay to find different ways to help make a food more preferable to your taste buds too!

Do you have any foods you will only eat when they’re prepared a certain way?
