Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . 12 small honey tangerines
12:00 . . 8 honey tangerines + a few medjool dates
3:00 . . . 1 lb. cherry tomatoes + a few pickling cukes
4:00 . . . handful of dates
5:00 . . . a few honey tangerines
6:00 . . . 1 cantaloupe + a few dates + 2 bananas

Play: walking/running ~ 4 miles, stretching, relaxing

I'm grateful for these big juicy dates, because they are getting me through this last little bit of late winter/early spring.

A few years ago I wrote down something that I will share with you:

There is always excitement before and during an act of dissipation, but afterwards, only sorrow and regret. ALWAYS.

I wrote this on a card and carried it in the car with me, for those times I was tempted by the idea of The Other. I wanted to remind myself that no matter how I was feeling now, I WOULD regret it to the max later. For sure. Every single time.

We each have these little tricks that help us. Maybe this one will be of some help to you.

Another trick that helped me was carrying an Arnold Ehret book with me in the car. He is one of the most powerful and inspiring writers on the fruit diet and having his book with me felt like having a friend right there, present and guiding. Thank you, Arnold! I love you still. ♥


  1. I just printed out your "pause button" / "moment of grace" thought. Thank you so much for your blog and words of wisdom. They are incredibly helpful. ♥

  2. Wow. Thank you, Kim! So sweet of you. ♥

    Also, someone asked me if I eat the skin of dates. Sometimes I am able to remove the skin as it is clearly skin, and sometimes I just go ahead and eat it if it does not remove easily. Hope this makes sense. : )

  3. I LOVe your blog! I just added it to my blog links on the side of my page.

    Stay fruity,


  4. Thank you, climbing girl! ♥ Now I just need to get back to writing more regularly. :)

  5. "There is always excitement before and during an act of dissipation, but afterwards, only sorrow and regret. ALWAYS."

    Yes, and why did I have to experience this 100 times (more probably), to figure this out?

    LOL! Hugs,


  6. Hi, Marjorie. . . . I KNOW! Really! But you DID figure it out, thankfully. Just shows how much is needed to undo the years of previous wrong training. ♥
