Always a succulent bowl of pomegranate jewels... when in season (no, I'm not really over these guys going out of season yet, roar!).

Now it's berries berries berries. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or soaked goji berries. Usually, I don't eat them all together. But sometimes I do. Raspberries have disappeared from the markets for a while, and I just had them for the first time in a few weeks right now--YUM! <3

Every morning I have thoughts of durian for breakfast, but then I'd just end up eating durian all day, and probably be way too uncomfortably full. Juicy + sweet/tart + light/refreshing is best for breakfast. =)

i only tried durian once ( no... twice)

it was interesting ... tasted like soy sauce sesame oil and mangoes all in one fruit

oh yeah and a tad bit garlicky too

so interesting.. that durian thing

but i checked out one other store.. it was an asian store ... and it was only frozen.. and it kind of made me thinnk..."nahhhh"

there was this guy who once wrote his 3 day diary concerning durians

where IS HE??

well, it was so fun and a trip to read about his luxurious durian experience

and funny too smiling smiley

I like veggie juice at the moment, especially because I can drink it on the car on the way to work if I am getting late!

today I had 1 pint of...cucumber, kale, spinach, green bean, celery, a tiny bit of carrot and half a lime. That was very good and kept me full from 7am to 10:30!

Mmmm...I'm drinking my smoothie right now. I blend it up, put it in a big jug and drink it all day at work. My favorite is peaches, mangos, cherries, strawberries and bananas. This morning I realized I need a bigger blender!

either mono fruit meal of whatever is plentiful or green smoothies mostly. when i get that "cereal" feeling, i chop up apples, asian pears, bananas, and whatever else i have on hand, toss a handful of chopped macadamia nuts in there, pour coconut water on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. yay!

lately I've been make a blend of orange, mango and pineapple juice in the morning. The mango makes the juice really thick even though I juice it. I've thought of just juicing the oranges and then blending it with the mango and pineapple but I'm usually moving pretty fast in the morning, and once the juicer is messy from the oranges I don't feel like getting the blender messy too. Too much clean up!

It's a really delicious juice combo and full of vitamin C!

Ah, Thanks guys,

We used to grow that on a farm I worked on in Vermont and we called it Cape Gooseberry. Almost looks like a little yellow Tomatillo. I think they are all in the same plant family.

Thanks again.

My co-op has fresh turmeric root now too... something I have never seen in real life before. After Greg's praise of it in his smoothies I bought some. It's strong. I put about a teaspoon into a quart and a half of smoothie and spent the whole time I was drinking it trying to decide how I felt about it. I decided that it was more good than bad, but it was a near thing. ("Fresh" is a relative term, and I'm sure that what my co-op sold me was a far cry from finding turmeric still in the ground in the woods as Greg did.)

I'm becoming more and more convinced of one of the macrobiotic philosophies, that our best food is the food that grows in our own climate. While I enjoy the tropical foods (and there are a lot of wonderful tropical foods!) my best breakfast this winter is a green smoothie made with apples (we haven't quite run out), blueberries (yes, I froze them), homegrown sprouts and other indoor or winter-grown greens. (With the blueberries it's more of a purplish brown smoothie.) If you haven't seen it yourself you'd be amazed at what kale can live through unprotected. I've dug edible kale out from under a foot and a half of snow.

For lunch, and especially supper I'm less sensitive and more interested in the remote, the obscure, the dehydrated, the fatty, the fermented, and the otherwise complicated. This is seven months into "going raw" and my preferences are still evolving.

Good morning Butterfly and Frances,

I'm moved that you were inspired to try Turmeric from something I said. It's still part of my daily routine... although I did stop for about 4 days, but I missed it dearly. I now buy my fresh Turmeric at the health food store. I didn't want to dig too much from my special spot. The fresh stuff at the store is locally grown, but since Turmeric is very similar to Ginger, it remains fresh for a long time. You should be able to plant either of them in some rich moist soil and have it start to grow again!

My Breakfast this morning:

A deep green smoothie with;

1 large cucumber
8" Turmeric root
4" ginger root
8" burdock root (gobo)
4 oz fresh cilantro
4 oz fresh parsley
2oz dandelion greens
2 limes (no skin)
1 tbs spirulina
+ enough fresh green coconut water to fill the vita-mix

Actually this is breakfast and lunch... it makes about 1/2 gallon!

P.S. MauiButterfly, I'm glad you liked the rock-head picture, but someone asked me to remove it because they felt it was too disturbing and made them not want to read any threads if I had posted... oh well, back to the shadows for me...

Aloha Nui Loa,

Greg

i was thinking about the history of breakfasts in my life this morning. i was raised on cereal (yes the boxed kind) and porridge bleech and yuck, then when i was older (20's) i thought bacon, eggs toast and coffee was the answer, my wife used to make apple cinnamon pancakes and they were tasty but they made me want to go straight to sleep after eating them...i now wonder how i ever got anything done starting my days like that. when i think about it now...many days the best i felt was when i got up in the morning before i ate anything at all. i know many of you had similar experiences but i know i wonder now about how much happier and productive i could have been had i eaten differently earlier in my life.

anyway, today i had another of my favorite fruit smoothies: filtered water, some mango, peaches, blackberries and raspberries that i had frozen and of course a banana. and now i am off to start another day full of energy and feeling great. hope you are all having a great day.

cheers

lacombe you might be able to find them in a West Indies market hun. They grow all over Jamaica (I have a star apple tree on my property back home) and I know there is a decent Caribbean population in Canada.
