Baked Grapefruit with Brown Sugar and Mint

I find it so interesting to read about trends and fads specifically as it pertains to dieting. As a person who’s never once been on a diet (to lose weight) reading about the trends of 80’s and 90’s dieting is humorous. Two big trends 30 years ago were cabbage soup and baked grapefruit. A friend of mine still lives by the cabbage soup diet to this day, and she hates every bite. Although some may consider grapefruit to be some life-altering citrus fruit, to me it’s merely a tasty + healthy snack.

The first time I ever tried baked grapefruit was during brunch at The Edison, here in Houston. Their brulee’d Texas Grapefruit legit changed my life. It’s honestly the inspiration for this non-recipe, recipe.  This recipe is possibly the easiest thing you’ll ever make because there’s really no measuring or ton of ingredients. All you need is a sweet and juicy grapefruit ( I suggest Winter Sweetz Texas Red Grapefruits) brown sugar, cinnamon, and mint.  Feel free to substitute your favorite sweeter here – honey, agave, date or maple syrup work just as well.
