Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . 8 valencia oranges
12:00 . . 2 cantaloupes + 2 dates
4:00 . . . 1 lb. grapefruit sections (refreshing!)
5:00 . . . handful of medjool dates
8:00 . . . 6 bananas + a few dates

Play: yoga

These bananas are right on the peak of ripeness. It's a funny thing with bananas. . . it seems that there is about a 5-minute period when they are perfectly ripe. If you can hit on the exact perfect ripeness, bananas are heaven. The smell, the taste, the feeling in your mouth, every cell in your body reacting with happiness. It can make you fall in love with bananas. ♥

And when I have a few juicy dates to enjoy with the bananas, it is fantastic. I call this combo Vanilla Cake with Caramel Icing because it tastes THAT good to me. When I ate this last night it gave me a feeling of euphoria. I also felt euphoric after the cantaloupes. Giddy, even. When I get that feeling, I know the fruit is of a good quality.

I NEVER EVER got that euphoric feeling from eating cooked and/or processed food. Not by a long shot. All I ever felt from that stuff was sick and tired.

I didn't know it was possible to feel SO GOOD from your food until I had been eating just fruit for a few weeks. I think this has to be one of the biggest secrets on the planet. I certainly never heard anyone talk about it my whole life. Well, it is time to start talking about it! ♥


  1. Great to hear FJ... thanks for sharing..especially the menu.. really like to see what others are eating.

    And yes.. the bananas... just a bit 2 ripe..and they seem to lose that "zip"... I know what you mean... and green.. forget about it!!

    All the best!

  2. Thank you, RawDad! I like the way we can get ideas from each other, too. ♥

  3. Your posts are like "fruity meditations" and I love them. You have a wonderful way of tuning into the energy and experience of each fruit.

    I notice that you don't seem to each much tropical fruit. Is this because the quality is so bad, the price is so high, or is there another reason?

    Love, Esmee

  4. Thank you, Esmee! Well, bananas are a tropical fruit, and so are pineapples. I'll try to answer your question better in my next post. ♥
