Winter is known for starchy, heavy, and hearty root vegetables, so it’s easy to forget that winter is also the season of bright, juicy, punchy citrus. Every winter, I try to break up the monotony of sweet potato and pumpkin recipes (no offense, I LOVE YOU) with some grapefruit and orange recipes.(more…)
What’s that? You’re complaining because there’s another recipe with banana?
You’re on the wrong blog, You know I love me some banana. 😉 (more…)
Don’t freak out. I know it looks and sounds strange, but…just give it a chance!
It’s verging on a savory oatmeal, but it’s definitely still sweet. It’s inspired by one of my favorite salads, grapefruit segments and avocado slices piled on a heap of spinach. Mmmm. If you’re hankering to try savory oats, but are still too scared to make the jump, this might be a good transition recipe for you. The grapefruit is flavorful, but the avocado is rich and creamy. As long as you like avocado (and I really, really do), you’ll enjoy this.
Happy fifth day of Christmas! 🙂 Oddly enough, this recipe feels a little more summery than a typical December post, but the weather here has been unseasonably warm, so it seems fitting. I even wore a skirt yesterday! What’s the weather like in your area?
This oatmeal reminded me of a grapefruit mojito I had back in August. In all honesty, anything with fresh mint is delightful, and anything with grapefruit is magical, so the combination is perfect. This is actually a really simple recipe that you can throw together with less than five ingredients; however, I’d also recommend adding nondairy yogurt. That gives it the wonderfully creamy texture that most porridges offer.

This recipe is only for those who love bitter. Sweet tooths need not read on.
First, you take a bitter grapefruit. Then, you stir in some bitter dark cocoa powder. Then, you top it with some more bitter grapefruit. If you’re wrinkling your nose, then save yourself some time and just click here instead. If you’re salivating like I was, read on.
I’ve posted a lot of blueberry recipes lately, and I’m not apologizing for it!
But before I get into that…do you know what today is? It’s September 1st. Today is the one-year anniversary of my first day of vegetarianism. As I explained in my “About Me” page, I originally just planned to try one month without meat. About halfway through the month of September, I already knew (at least subconsciously) that I would not be going back. I was in love with it.
I first stumbled upon a recipe for grapefruit oatmeal on Pinterest (imagine that!), and I was initially skeptical. I have never used citrus in my oatmeal before, and I had a hard time imagining how those segments of bitter juice would mesh with an earthy bowl of porridge.
Well, I’m here to tell you that they mesh beautifully. Even more impressively, after I dropped the segments in and stirred, they broke into their tiny, individual pockets of juice, which resulted in every spoonful having an equal dose of grapefruit! In fact, this bowl of oatmeal has actually become one of my all-time favorites!
