Food for Thought

All fruits offer health benefits plus I always find them a satisfying snack or even lunch sometimes. When in doubt, I grab a few fruits to take with me. I can never go wrong and I always try to keep plenty in my house. And most fruit has such a wonderful taste when it is out as opposed to being in the refrigerator. So, I put them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh and take them out a few at a time to let them assume the best flavor ever!

If there is any fruit that I push more any other; the one that lures me in with promises of high antioxidants and yummy goodness, the one that will lower my cholesterol when I approach that bridge, if ever, the one that will prevent heart disease... Oh, yes, that round little ball of blueness. My favorite blueberry. I even picked a few for the occasion. They were not as plentiful today, but, they definitely made up for the shortage by having a delectable suggestion of deliciousness.

I have always loved fruits and vegetables, even juicing them to get the full nutritional value of everything that I buy. Waste not, want not, am I right? It was in juicing that I learned I could eat the skin of the kiwi. Who knew? Not this girl. This nutrient-packed delight is already on the good deal list of fruits. But, did you realize that by eating the skin, you triple your fiber intake? But, hey! If you peel it, you still get a healthy dose of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium

Another that is a favorite Okay, you got me, they are all my favorites! is the true-blue albeit a little red-faced strawberry! Who doesn't love them? The strawberry is sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, plus it is a low-calorie food. Who could resist?

Well, until we meet again. You know I am going to bother you. But, no fretting. I will post a flower in a little bit. After you eat your spinach. Let's not forget that we all need 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every single day.


image.png


Okay... you know the drill!!! Let's do a refrigerator check!!! Open up wide and take a picture! That always keeps me honest on the junk I put in it. To be fair, this is my last refrigerator posted, so I admit to cheating. I didn't have enough time, but it still has some of the same awesome yumminess inside!

Why hello there! My name is Remmy and I am a diva, no lying about it. Are you my food slave? I don't recognize you, but, can you get me four kitty scoops of tuna topped with a treat?


image.png


Take your hand my dearest
Catch my breath
Alas, this moment, last time
Letting the sigh slip by, goodbye
Emerging
From a point of splendor
A veil of softness, the loveliness
Still
To this day
Takes my breath away

A flower. There must always be a flower to color my world.

Planted firmly on the high pinnacle of American faith, the gently fluttering folds are an inspiration of things that can be — at Washington Monument National Monument.


I Am Old Glory

I Am Old Glory: For more than ten score years I have been the banner of hope and freedom for generation after generation of Americans.

Born amid the first flames of America’s fight for freedom, I am the symbol of a country that has grown from a little group of thirteen colonies to a united nation of fifty sovereign states.

Planted firmly on the high pinnacle of American Faith my gently fluttering folds have proved an inspiration to untold millions.

Men have followed me into battle with unwavering courage.

They have looked upon me as a symbol of national unity.

They have prayed that they and their fellow citizens might continue to enjoy the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, which have been granted to every American as the heritage of free men.

So long as men love liberty more than life itself; so long as they treasure the priceless privileges bought with the blood of our forefathers; so long as the principles of truth, justice and charity for all remain deeply rooted in human hearts, I shall continue to be the enduring banner of the United States of America.

Originally written by Master Sergeant Percy Webb, USMC.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Well I certainly know what my favorite fruit is....Hand over a few of those red grapes, will ya. Ok, ok you drive a hard bargain, I will share some cheese...you can choose. Maybe some nice Muenster, or how about a bit of feta, oh I know some blue cheese?

Oh I am pretty sure Remmy there was trying to do the Jedi mind trick on me, yikes!

Oh, I should have known about the grapes! It is hard to hide those bad boys from you. They do go well with a bit of the bleu. Or perhaps some wine on the side.

You pick it!

Haha! Oh, Remmy is so transparent, isn't he? He is a master at his game. But, he is a lot of fun. It is absolutely perfect out. The perfect day for a perfect day. Truly. This is better than spring this morning. I cannot believe the weather!

Enjoy this weather! Pull out the jet ski and go for it!

Wow! Lovely fruits making me famished for a food diet! Your fridge is just like a supermarket! I could shop around there!
I don’t have the time to do shopping these days so I run out of fruits today!

I wish I could just make your fruits disappear through a worm hole and travel to my fridge!! So, I don’t have to go shopping!! Lol

Oh, I hear you. It would be so much easier if the store came to my house! Don't they have the carts that go to people's houses? Perhaps closer to the city. That would be a lot of trouble.

But, I would surely use it!! LOL

I can see what is in the fridge this way. So much easier. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

!tip

The problem here is cheap fruits are imported from China, but growers there tend to use chemical fertilizer and weed killer. So, these never taste right to me!

Imported berries are quite expensive too.
Thai fruits also have been under chemical environment! So, I have to grow my own fruit trees and they take years to be matured enough to give us fruits! At least we have many mangoes, bananas, lemons, Thai grave fruits this year.

I buy imported apples from New Zealand, they are quite cheap! We can’t grow apricot or apple trees here yet!

Have a nice weekend!
Cheers.

Haha! True! Us ugly Americans do that on a regular basis, don't we? I'll try to remember. You have to remember, there are more living in my house than yours, and the young people love smoothies and fruit in general, although veggies are right up there.

And they like it fresh, just like me. So. even though it looks like a lot, it is mostly the way I package it so that I can see it easily.

Even the KIWIFRUIT. There. I said it.

Oh! Thanks for the ENGAGE and TRDO tokens!

WellI did pick up some fresh fruit today planning to have some smoothies this weekend ;)

OMG!!! Old or new photo, I don't care! I LOVE how organised your fridge is!!!! hahaha... it makes my OCD heart happy! As for the fruits, oddly I have never been a great fruit lover... more a veggies girl, although I do love bananas, strawberries, peaches and guavas... oh and mangoes... ok maybe I do like fruit haha!!

Well, I usually take one once a week to keep it honest, but, last night I was doing this post on the run. Haha! I know people call my organizational skills OCD, but the truth is, it is easier to live when I know where everything is. :)

There are lots of veggies. I have another fridge in the garage, right to the left of this one and it is mostly veggies and cold drinks. But, my kids love it fresh, veggies or fruit. So there is always plenty to keep them happy.

Oh, I do love it too. :)

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. I hope you robbed the fridge while you were there. Plenty for everyone.

Fruit and most vegetables have to go into fridge in our hot climate, wish my fridge was a neat as your one Denise, always having to move things around.

Did not know you can eat Kiwi fruit skin, not sure I would try that.

What a handsome cat, definitely you on beck and call.

Geranium flowers look delightful in shades of pink to brighten up your life, did you know the leaves and flowers of scented geraniums are edible, more for the kitchen delights.

Have a fun day! Remember to enjoy a !BEER

Oh, yes! I can imagine that they do have to go into the refrigerator over there. I actually keep mine like that so that I can see what I have. If I have the containers to move around, it makes it easier for me. I found I have little to no waste. Well, I never did, but, this certainly makes it easier to see how fresh it is.

Yes. I eat the kiwi fruit skin. Normally, in a fruit smoothie or I juice it. My kids outright eat it.

Yes, definitely! The cat has us on a leash, for sure. :) At least we were easy to train. We do eat lower leaves, but, I am really partial to dandelion greens. I like mixing a bit of the bitter in with a savory dinner. Thank you for stopping in and saying hello!

Have a great day yourself! Thanks for the beer!

!tip

We don't make smoothies when I have a lot of fruit in the home, I make fruit salad of everything available which the family enjoy. Will try Kiwi fruit with skin next time we buy, not a regular fruit found.

I gave myself a tip. OMG. How funny.

Wonderful fresh looking fruit Denise. Your frig is stocked with some wonderful good stuff.

I love the cat. He looks like one I had, a Maine Coon I called Houlton. Houlton because that is a town in Maine I frequented in my younger days. My aunt lived there . 💗

Thanks. Jo! @redheadpei I love Maine Coons and funny enough, he is also from Maine. :) He came from Ellesworth, Maine down along the coastline, from a shelter closeby. Of course, this was a while back. Oh, yeah! Houlton is skirting the border there, ah, in the good old days when we could stroll back and forth. :)

Now that you have the hedge, it makes it harder for me. Unless I come by boat!

I like a well-stocked fridge with fruits and veggies! Yummy delicious!

I do not have/use a fridge and doubt it is good for each kind of fruit to be stored cold. Bananas for example do not like the cold.
My house is so cold I doubt they get the right temperature.
We do not snack and if we see the snack as a meal. Fruit is expensive so I only buy some for the children and what I can afford.

You are right. Bananas never go in the refrigerator! I keep some of each fruit in a fruit basket so that it can assume room temperature. The rest the ones that go in the refrigerator are there so they stay fresh. Most of the fruit and veggies are part of the meal. I don't snack. The kids do, but, it is a fruit, so I am okay with that.

The fruit is not expensive here. Neither are most of the vegetables.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Have a good day!
