Daily Fruit + Play

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. ♥


  1. I am thinking about going Fruitarian- I've done the Raw thing, the raw vegan. My body is still having issues like bloating, tiredness-can you tell me the benefits of being a fruitarian vs raw foodist?

  2. Hi, Melinda. . . Fruit is soothing to the body and is very easy to digest. It really IS our correct food. You could give it a try and see how it does for you. I think eating lots of raw harsh veggies is tough on the system. Something like fresh orange juice, watermelon, and/or bananas is easily assimilated. Hope this helps. ♥
