Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . juice of 10 organic valencia oranges
1:00 . . . 8 organic satsuma mandarines (pictured above)
3:00 . . . a few organic medjool dates + 2 tomatoes
4:00 . . . 8 oranges
6:00 . . . 14 pickling cukes + 5 tomatoes + 4 dates
8:00 . . . 6 oranges
Play: ballet, stretching, secret obsession
The quality of the citrus is improving consistently. The mandarines are a nice surprise in Whole Foods, and at a reduced price, too. And I love that they are just natural, loose, not in plastic or mesh bags. I will buy more. They are good-tasting, easy to peel and eat, and after you peel them, they are soft, like moss. I love my beautiful fruit. . . each one is a masterpiece of creation.
And the valencias continue to be EXCELLENT. They will improve, too, in the next few months. I feel content and at peace to know that I am settling into an easy and very good winter pattern. I feel blessed for this amazing abundance of food.
It is true that I am not doing things like most people around me. I don't care about shoes, I'm not buying jewelry, not going to restaurants, not hanging out at Starbucks.
It doesn't bother me in the least that I have let go of some traditional customs and habits. It brings to mind this great quote:
"It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society." J. Krishnamurti
And there is so much more to be let go of, with relief and joy. ♥
