Alright. Stick with me on this one.
I’m trying to eat less sugary things. Fruit doesn’t count. I’m talking cakes, cookies, candy, you know.
Not because it’s a new year (although, if I’m honest, those Christmas cookie exchanges might have had something to do with the decision), and not because I want to lose weight. Sort of because my teeth are awful and always hurt. But mostly, I just feel like reigning in my crazy sweet tooth that seems to take over at every meal. I don’t know..ask me in a week. I may have changed my mind.
But until then. I roasted some oranges.
Simple. Easy. Cheap. Sweet. Healthy. Delicious.
(oh, and on the teeth subject…my dentist told me last year that I needed to eat less citrus. So, this is actually not helping that situation AT ALL)
Roasted Orange Slices
- 2-3 oranges, sliced (like your mom used to do at halftime for soccer games)
- 1 T honey
- sprinkling of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Drizzle honey over oranges and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roast for 20 minutes, or until they look puffy and juice and magnificent.
