Broiled Grapefruit

If you aren’t a fan of grapefruit, after trying this recipe you might just become one. I love grapefruit, but this version is the right amount of sweetness/tanginess.

  • 1/2 packet of Stevia
  • 1/2 Grapefruit

Sprinkle grapefruit with stevia, and place in oven/toaster oven. Broil at a high temperature for 8-10 minutes.

Healthy Tofu Scramble

After my morning workout, I decided to switch up my usual breakfast of a Green Protein Smoothie for protein packed tofu scramble and ezekiel toast.  I found this recipe at Post Punk Kitchen.  With just the right amount of spices, the healthy dish was full of flavor.  The amazing health benefits of adding cumin to your meal can be found here. Turmeric, a superfood, is a great anti-inflammatory, and nutritional yeast is abundant in B12 and folic acid. I substituted Lite Firm Tofu and I omitted the salt, yielding the nutritional content – Calories: 150 / Fat: 9.6g / Sodium: 44mg / Carbohydrates: 4.7 / Fiber: 4g / Protein: 14.1g.
