Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . juice of 8 organic valencias
2:00 . . . 1 lb. kiwi
3:00 . . . juice of 12 organic valencias + a bunch of cherry tomatoes
4:00 . . . more cherry tomatoes + several pickling cukes
5:00 . . . juice of 6 oranges
8:00 . . . 5 bananas, made into pudding

Play: yoga, secret obsession

In the bowl is one banana, mashed into a liquid with my hand, no added water. So a banana is deceptive. It looks like a solid, but it's really a liquid! Magical. Yes, even bananas contain lots of liquid.

But lately I am tiring of everything except oranges. The quality of the oranges will be improving in the next month or so, and I will be leaning on them more and more as my winter staple food. If they say a snow storm is coming, I stock up on oranges like other people stock up on bread and milk. We haven't really been snowed in badly since I started on this fruit thing. I am usually careful to have plenty of stuff on hand. But if I ever ran out, I guess I would try to live on snow for a while. I have lived on snow for a day here and there. Something about it is very sustaining.

That reminds me of the story of Dr. Barbara Moore who walked and hiked many miles in the Alps having only snow water, no food for months at a time. Believe it or not. I believe it, for sure. Her fascinating story is here. This is on my friend Mango's site. Thank you, Mango! ♥


  1. nice to read you one more time :)

    what is "secret obsession" ? definitively can't understand it...!

    i like sometimes cuncumbers, but feel a little hard to digest, more than all other fruits, and you ?

    hope you will find plenty of good oranges.

    heart love

  2. Lately I've been doing great with oranges too, plus coconuts. Looking forward to the Honeybells in January :D

    Once or twice a week I run out of fruit and drink water for most of the day, and it feels realllllly great. The more I do this, the less I have to eat to sustain myself when I do get a hold of food. The next time we get snow here I'll try eating that in place of water from my fridge.

    Btw, my name is Ran and I have been a lurker here for a while now.. Thought it was about time I start commenting :D I really enjoy reading your entries.

  3. Hi, Sandrine. . . thank you for visiting! I have explained secret obsession many times. Read around! ♥ The only cucumbers I like are the pickling ones. They are softer and easier to chew and digest.

    Hi, Ran. . .thank you and welcome! I do know what you mean about eating less. Every day is different and we feel our way along! In a world gone crazy with overeating junk, people might think us a bit mad. ♥

  4. thanks Julie for your reply.
    I will search for your secret obsession...
    have a great day :)
