Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . juice of 8 oranges
11:00 . . some black grapes
3:00 . . . 1 large cantaloupe (heavenly)
4:00 . . . 5 bananas
8:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + some tomatoes

Play: dance and yoga

Yeah, this way of life is pretty easy and natural when it's hot and sunny outside and the local produce is abundant and of excellent quality. It does get a little tricky, a bit challenging, when the weather turns cold and rainy, or snowy.

Just as I now can't help but see how EVERYTHING in our culture is designed around junk food, I also see that what people love about winter is junky winter foods. People do tend to eat more poorly, and just MORE, in winter. And people tend to get sick more in winter, too. Hellooo!

I have to admit that chilly weather triggers thoughts and memories of The Other for me. The difference now is that I am content to have those fuzzy memories without actually wanting to eat any of the junk. Instead, I now think of wanting/needing liquid sunshine in the form of oranges and pineapples and bananas. Mostly oranges. Can't WAIT for orange season. ♥


  1. I can't wait for honeybell oranges this winter! So full of juice!

  2. I can't wait for the wonderful Florida oranges to come to Ohio. I buy them by the case. Yum!!!! I love all the different bowls that you display your fruit in!

  3. Hi, Kay. . . Love honeybells! And honey tangerines. You're right! ♥

    Hi, Jean. . . Buying by the case is smart. Thank you for your kind words. The bowls. . . let's hope creativity really is endless. : )
