Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . 8 oranges
12:00 . . 12 oranges
4:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + 1 lb. campari tomatoes
6:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + 1 lb. campari tomatoes
7:00 . . . a few medjool dates
8:00 . . . 3 oranges + handful medjool dates

Play: acrobatics, dance, stretching

We got a few inches of snow but we're not snowed in. Still, I stocked up on LOTS of oranges just in case. I got probably ~ 100 oranges. Which is always a sight at the store and causes lots of comments. "What're you gonna do with all those oranges?" is the most common one. One woman asked "Do you have lots of children?" Another person said, "Wow, I bet you never get a cold with all that Vitamin C." Ha, ha. She's right!

Actually, I appreciate every opportunity to speak up FOR fruit. I put the emphasis there, on the positive. I also speak up AGAINST junk food and the killing and eating of animals, but I am very subtle about it. I am outwardly sweet but inwardly fierce. I want everyone to know the truth: that fruit is the correct food for humans. I continue to speak up even though I sometimes feel like one little drop of water in the giant ocean of nuttiness. To be truthful, I have learned over time that most people are not interested in giving up all their comfort food to live on fruit. I get it.

But I continue to plant the seed, knowing it takes time for the seed to take root and develop. ♥
