Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . 12 small honey tangerines
1:00 . . . kiwi, strawberry tomatoes, dates, pickling cukes
3:00 . . . more kiwi and dates
6:00 . . . 4 large bananas + a few dates
8:00 . . . a few honey tangerines
I made a beautiful fruit platter yesterday for a family gathering following a funeral. I wish I had thought to take a picture. No food represents life and vitality like a big pile of vibrantly-colored fruit. Everything else looks dead, IS dead, in comparison.
The fruit platter had kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberry tomatoes, spears of pickling cukes, and a big mound of medjool dates in the center. It was GIGANTIC. But I could have eaten the whole thing, really. I had to restrain myself, so there would be plenty for everyone. For most people, it is an unusual treat to have so much fresh fruit. For me, it is just another day! I know there is always more, always plenty.
So for dinner, I got to have my favorite "heavy" meal: bananas and dates. It really does taste just like vanilla cake and caramel frosting. And for a person to fully appreciate the amazingly DELICIOUS taste of fruit, one must go for a while without anything else, to let the taste buds become clean and correct. Only then will one understand that no food on earth can top fruit. ♥
