Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

8:00 . . . 1/4 watermelon
12:00 . . .1 lb. kiwi
1:00 . . . big bunch of black grapes
3:00 . . . more black grapes
5:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe
7:00 . . . 6 bananas

Play: walking, stretching

I can't help but notice when I am in the regular grocery store that people are LOADING UP their carts with some awful stuff. Hey, I used to eat some junk, too, but I have to say that even at my worst, I NEVER loaded up an entire cart with pure junk like I see now.

And it's really crazy because people think this is NORMAL. There is seemingly no awareness that this is not good, to live on junk food. I don't even know how it is possible for the human body to keep living, in spite of that continual assault.

I used to buy candy and junky stuff, but in very small amounts and very guiltily, with the knowledge that I was "sinning." I would even be embarrassed for the clerks to see what I was buying. But they never blinked an eye.

NOW they blink an eye. "Boy, you sure do like oranges. What're ya gonna do with all these oranges???" "That's a lot of bananas. What're ya gonna do. . . make banana bread?" "How many people are in your family? They must really like fruit!" "Are you having a party?" (Yes! I am having a party every day!) Sometimes the clerks call people over to take a look at what I am buying. But I don't mind a bit because I am only happy and proud of my food these days. And I WANT people to notice so they will get the idea themselves.

I take every opportunity to give my message to the world. Whether they believe it or not. I am planting seeds.


  1. I run into a lady and her son at the grocery store. The son picked up a bag of oranges. The mother told the son to put them back...they were too expensive. I looked into her cart and it was full of pop, chips and cookies. I picked up those oranges and many more and bought them. Sad but true. (For the son, not me) :) Thanks for your post!

  2. Dear Julie ♥,
    it is nice to be happy and proud of your shopping.
    I have some Spanish string fruit bags that I love to use, because I think it is wonderful to have all the lovely colourful fruit on display.
    Happy fruit finding ♥
    Love and Peaches XX

  3. Hi, Jean. . . that IS a sad story. It's maddening. I feel sorry for everyone who does not know about fruit. Thanks for sharing! ♥
