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! ♥
