Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . 10 small honey tangerines
12:00 . . a few medjool dates
2:00 . . . 2 cantaloupes
4:00 . . . a few medjool dates
6:00 . . . a slew of honey tangerines (20?)
7:00 . . . few more dates

Play: dance, stretching, walking in woods

I just now took this pic of the food I have for the next day or so. When I look at this, I feel SO blessed, rich, and grateful. Many beings around the world have no food to eat, or are relegated to having only terrible food to eat, or have to work really hard to find something suitable.

It is not perfection to buy your food in a store. Perfection would be strolling through groves of tropical fruit trees, seeing what looks most delicious, and choosing the ripest fruits right off the trees in the fresh air and sunshine. But for now, I am happy for what is, and all that is given. ♥

There are about 40 tangerines in that bowl and about 2 pounds of dates. 11 bananas and a cantaloupe. That will take me through today and into tomorrow.

I find that early Spring is the most challenging time of the year for fruit eating, but also the most hopeful time of year. Soon there will be local melons and tomatoes at the farmer's market and fruit stands. I am dreaming already of crisp sweet watermelons, my favorite! ♥


  1. Wow, Jules. Each day you inspire. Thank you for sharing. Really.

  2. I just wanted to say I love your blog! I've recently thinking of going on a fruitarian journey, and your blog serves as good inspiration! Hopefully I can develop that bubbly, positive attitude that's always in your posts. Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much, sweet Shannon! ♥ I really appreciate you.

    Thank you, Ali! Honestly, the fruit will make you feel happy and sweet. :)

  4. Always like reading you and seeing your photos :)

    For my first fruitarian year, I find it very challenging to find good fruits on the end of winter and spring beginning.
    I have made some binges and don't feel good after, and now I'm fasting, trying to heal some polycistic ovaries...

    Thank you so much to be here,
    dear Julie.
    Have a beautiful day,

  5. Cher Sandrine. . . Yes, I understand! I was thinking today of writing about this. . . the issue of finding good quality fruit. Maybe for your "fast" you can go on orange juice. :) I appreciate you, too, fruit sister. Love to you. ♥

  6. Dear Julie,
    Thank you for this lovely post.
    It is even making the kitty purr.
    Love you XX.
    Love and Peaches,
    from Anne XX.

  7. Thank you, Anne! Purring kitties are the BEST! ♥ Love you back. ♥
