Sweet Treat

Today is the day I have 100% started PRISM again. I'm looking forward to seeing some results and maybe finding links to other issues. I have a big goal in mind but I know that I did it once before, I can do it again.

Tonight after I ate dinner (salad with homemade greek yogurt dressing) I made up these little goodies for a treat.

They don't look like much but they are so good and just the bit of sweetness I needed to get through today. Haven't had sugar since Monday. The first two weeks are always the hardest in terms of sugar but I'm determined.

How to make these:

You need oranges, I think any kind will do but I used Cuties because they're so cute
Cut them in half horizontally
Using a small paring knife or a serrated spoon, loosen the orange flesh from the peel, don't remove it completely, just enough to create a small gap between the orange and the peel
Pour a little agave nectar over each orange (this step is completely optional, the oranges are sweet on their own, I used just the tiniest amount on each)
sprinkle the tops with cinnamon, however much you'd like, some got more than others
place on a baking sheet under the broiler for 4-5 minutes, check it though because it could take shorter or longer depending on your oven
You want to take them out when they are caramelized on top

To eat them, let cool for a minute then flip the peel backwards, away from the flesh and eat straight from the peel.

You're house will smell REALLY good and you'll get a delicious, juicy, naturally sweet, cinnamon-y treat.

Make up more than you think you'll need because they go quick :) I just did one per person which was fine for us but if allowed, I could eat four.

Perhaps tomorrow I will make 'sassy water'. I'm drinking lots (subsequently, peeing a lot) of water but I found a fun recipe to freshen up my water. Slice lemon, cucumbers and add to water, grate a little fresh ginger, and sprinkle in some mint. Let it sit in water pitcher to naturally flavor your water.

If you have any fun, healthy (ie: no sugar, no flour, no potatoes) recipe you'd like to share, I'd love to hear it!!
