Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . juice of 8 valencia oranges
11:00 . juice of 8 valencia oranges
2:00 . . 1 honeydew melon (really like honey! ♥)
4:00 . . 1 honeydew melon
5:00 . . 1 lb. of grape tomatoes
6:00 . . 8 oranges + handful of medjool dates

Play: dancing, stretching, acrobatics

I know that some fruity people buy their produce in huge amounts, for a week or more at a time. I've tried that, but it just doesn't work well for me. I lose the desire for what I bought days ago, or the fruit goes bad before I get to it, or I come across something I'd rather have instead.

I prefer to do "urban foraging" where I only have what I need for a day or two at a time. That way I am always alert to what is available and what my own personal desires are.

And btw, the pic is of my honeydew melon after I was done eating it. It was REALLY sweet, dripping with sugar. Wish I could have shared. ♥


  1. I totaly agree with you on the Urban foraging. I used to be able to walk to an aorganic food store and pick my fruit every day, and it was amazing. I can't wait for the day when I love some where where I can walk to the farmers market each day. Love your blog!!

  2. Thank you, Alyssa! Love your vision. How about living somewhere where you can pick fruit off the trees?! ♥

  3. THAT WOULD BE EVEN BETTER!!! One day Jules, one day! Where do you see yourself living, if you could live anywhere?

  4. Oh, Alyssa. . . too many choices, REALLY! I like the romantic idea of a tropical island, like in the movie The Blue Lagoon. ♥
