Daily Fruit + Play

Yesterday I ate:

9:00 . . . several glasses honey tangerine juice
12:00 . . more tangerine juice
2:00 . . . 4 bananas + a few medjool dates
5:00 . . . 1 pineapple
6:00 . . . 14 honey tangerines + 1 lb. campari tomatoes
8:00 . . . some tangerine juice

Play: walking/running 6 miles, stretching, relaxing

I am still living in honey tangerine land. And I am grateful every day when I see these beauties waiting for me at the store. I seem to be the only one buying them. Today I bought about 60-70. When people ask me about it, I say they're the best food in the whole store!

The funny thing is that if I really suspected they would make a run for them, I'd keep quiet. Ha! You know, life being survival of the fittest and all. ; )

And my husband has discovered that he LOVES them, too, so there is a bit of competition going on there. But it is tough to outeat Fruity Jules on the fruit! Not many want to try. Plus, I am younger and faster! (Line from Fried Green Tomatoes. Fruit tip: Do not fry your tomatoes!)

Honestly, I say a prayer every day for tangerine season to keep on going. I will seriously mourn its' passing. Thank you, Mother Nature and fruit growers, for these amazing orange sugar bombs! They are better than any candy or any soda EVER. And as a lifetime sugaraholic, I would know.

About having juice: I think that eating the whole fruit is optimal. But I also have no big issue with sometimes having some juice. It is a super treat if the fruit is of good quality. This tangerine juice tastes better than any glass of rotten grape juice I mean wine. ; ) It gives you a REAL high with no hangover and no brain poisoning. Lots of giggling and euphoria. Wow. ♥


  1. its funny, i say the same thing about fruit compared to coffee, my fellow co-workers always rave about it, and always suffer in the end because they jolting their nerves, and always end up with a nasty crash, while i float on through the day with my Orange goodness ;)

  2. Hey, Brillo. . . Oh, yeah. . . coffee crash! And with fruit juice you feel good before, during AND after! No problems! Floating is a good way to describe it. :)

  3. Hi Fruity Jules! I've been reading your blog and it's just awesome - I love it! Thanks so much for putting all this good energy out in the universe. I feel like floating after reading your entries :-)

    I've been feeling like moving away from greens towards fruit lately, but I keep hearing this little voice telling me that greens are essential for health, I need minerals, etc.

    But all I want right now are oranges and tangerines. So yum. They give me the best energy and I feel so high . I ate some apples inbetween my oranges for breakfast and oranges for after-school snack, and they immediately made me feel sleepy and foggy. When I went back to oranges later on I perked right up.

    I'm working on trusting my body to tell me what is best at this point. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Just a thought for you sweety Julie :)


  5. Wow. . . thank you, sweetfruitlover! And what you write sounds very wise to me. It's hard to beat good citrus. My friend Michael Arnstein says that fresh OJ is like rocket fuel! Thanks for sharing your experiences. We each have our own path to go. ♥

  6. Merci, Sandrine! ♥ I'm thinking about you, too. ♥
