What fruit did you eat today? a question to drool...

I know hesp is going to blow this up, but I need to be accountable for my fruit intake. I'm falling back into not eating much, and I want to change it.

Today: avocado (has to count!), banana, and planning on a tangelo

I got my Vitamix 2 days ago, so I've been eating a ton of fruit.  Strawberries, bananas, mangos, oranges, limes, watermelon, maybe blueberries.  (Whatever I had in the freezer.)  I haven't been able to breathe well for a couple days and have been stuck at home for that reason.  This has definately helped me stay hydrated.

I had a green smoothie for breakfast which included lemon, apple and blueberries, as far as fruit goes. I also had guacamole for a snack later in the day, it had lime and avocado. Oh, some raisins too.

That's not even freakish! I can't remember if I ate one in the morning, and then later, or just one..sometime during the day. u.

HOW are ya'll eating so many different types of fruits? are they all frozen/dried or just out of season? i am a fruit snob and pretty much refuse to eat anything that isn't top quality so I am stuck with bananas, dates, and oranges mostly. cherimoyas came in but they're a little pricey for a staple of mine ($2.50/lb at my farmer's market). i got some as big as my head, though. i want melons and peaches and apricots and figs!

fresh fruit.

I didn't do very well yesterday. I think I just had some tomato sauce (in lasagna), and strawberries in pancakes.

I admit it, I am eating crazy tons of out of season fruits.

I'm eating mostly whatever's on sale lately - berries have been like $1/pint here the past couple weeks, so I've bought a ton of them, and today I bought a bunch of mini watermelons for the same reason. I'm sure they're not top quality, but they taste fine to me.

Also, I just started eating mostly fruit, so I've been excited to try some weird fruits I had never had before, even knowing they come from across the world, were probably picked before I was born and their nutrients probably died with Kurt Cobain.

I really wish I could find cherimoya for $2.5 though! The *cheapest* I have seen it here yet is like $7/lb.

Where do you get your dates? Are they fresh ones?

lauuren, awesome you are eating mostly fruit! me too!

I get dates from the bautista family date ranch in mecca, ca. you can order them on the phone, though, if you want. they are fresh. (760)396-2337. I think the kind I get are about $3/lb and then I don't know what shipping would be for you. You just order them and they send you an invoice in the mail with your order and you send them a check. Haha, very high tech! They will ship from 2-15 lbs.

I definitely eat some tropicals sometimes, too (durian, jackfruit (ew), longans, tamarind.. anything i can find!), but not much because for one I can't really find them here, also they are never organic, and lastly because they are expensive.
