I’ve been eating a ton of fruit recently. I’ve actually sort of been skipping meals all together somewhat and just snacking most of the day. I hadn’t really checked out the fruit selection at the grocery recently in depth. Man, are there some weird fruit there. I wonder who, if anybody buys them. I’m not even sure how you would eat some of them.
I think it is interesting how they ship fruit from all over the world to end up at a place I can get it. I rarely get grapes from anywhere but Chile in the winter. A lot of the fruit is from South American. I don’t understand, with the price of shipping, how they can bring it all the way up to me and make any money.
They seem to be pushing a lot of different/unique fruits on us nowadays. All these fruits that are supposedly so good for you, pomegranates, blueberries, blackberries, etc. The same with nuts. I don’t get why no one thought they were good for you 10 years ago?
Anyway, I dig fruit, so I like eating all the unique kinds. What bothers me is that the normal fruit, the oranges, apples, plums, peaches, never seem to be in season much anymore. I hardly ever get a peach that just drips down my chin when I bite into it. I don’t know why that is, but it is sad.
I should try to get on a more regimented meal schedule, but for some reason, it seems to be eluding me.
