Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . 5 large valencia oranges
1:00 . . . handful of fresh medjool dates
4:00 . . . few more dates
5:00 . . . juice of 8 organic valencias
7:00 . . . juice of 8 organic valencias + a few fat cherry tomatoes

Play: ballet and stretching

Oops! I did not mean to be gone for so long, fruity peeps! I was just away from home and away from computers for most of the week. It felt good to live more in the real world and away from the screen for a bit. Although I do love and appreciate the fruity community on the 'net.

But my friend here, Mr. Orange (use a French accent), is expressing my delight at finding some super good organic valencias. (I took a picture of a postcard someone gave me.) It looks like I'm going to be heavy on the oranges now as they just get better and better. Sweeter and riper and richer. Thank you, orange growers!

And speaking of oranges, you will really enjoy reading the blog of my friend, Anne Osborne, who is writing about her experiences daily on her most recent orange juice diet. She has already gone over 50 days on just oranges! This is fantastic, as Anne is dispelling many myths about food, eating, and nutrition:

Enjoy! ♥
