Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . juice of 8 Fall-Glo tangerines
10:00 . . juice of 6 Fall-Glo tangerines
1:00 . . . 1 lb. kiwi
3:00 . . . 1 large cantaloupe
4:00 . . . 3 large tomatoes + 6 pickling cukes + a few dates
7:00 . . . 4 bananas + 3 organic medjool dates

Play: dance, stretching, secret obsession

Again, I count ~ 40 pieces of fruit eaten. The cantaloupe counts as 4 pieces in my mind. I certainly do not count my food or really pay any attention to that, but for folks trying to figure out what works for them, it might be helpful. Occasionally I wonder how much all of this weighs, how many pounds of food I am eating, but I am not anal enough to go buy a food scale and weigh my food. Ha! But I can approximate that I probably eat between 10 and 20 pounds of food a day. This gives me something to say when someone suggests that I am not eating very much. I can say, "Hey, I eat all the time! Some days I eat 20 pounds of food!" Of course, since it's fruit it's mostly water.

Last night I got a strong desire for some apple juice. So today I will seek out some good Fuji apples. I rarely eat apples. They are very cleansing and light, but I just usually prefer the sweeter tropical fruits. I think I might try hand pressing some juice using my Orange X.


  1. I think I'm going to drop my health insurance so I can afford all the fruit. Hopefully, it will simply balance out in the end...

  2. Ha, ha. . . I hear ya. But I think I save a LOT of money living this way. . . no doctors visits, no medications, no supplements, no restaurants, no bottled water, alcohol, or drinks, no deodorant, no toothpaste, no haircuts, etc. If I had to, I could live on $5. a day for food. That would be a lot of bananas, but I could do it.

  3. Wow! I just found your site a few days ago and I am impressed! I'm currently vegan and I'm going to go raw on January 1st, but someday I would like to flirt with fruitarianism.

  4. Hi, Guy. . . Thank you very much! I am proud of you. I have a lot of respect for anyone who is vegan. When you "go raw" you will be eating a LOT of fruit. Keep me posted! : )

  5. Hi Julie,

    hope you're good, miss you these last days ! ;-)

    You don't use toothpaste?! Did you floss your teeth, how often do you brush your teeth if you do that...?
    Did you have teeth problem in the past, and since you're on fruits ?

    and what about shampoo and soap ?

    enjoy your moment

  6. Beautiful picture of oranges--I am loving them right now.

  7. Thank you, Beth! ♥

    Sandrine. . . I don't use toothpaste, but I do brush with water and floss my teeth. Only teeth problems I've had were from previously bad diet and dentists doing ridiculous things. Shampoo and soap only very occasionally. Hope this helps.
