fruits, fruits, fruits!

fruits, comfort food, food musings

Fruits are my ultimate comfort food and I cannot go an entire week without having a few servings of my favorites. That is why I was rather relieved to finally be able to go to the grocers recently to stock up on some items in our pantry. I have been craving for some fruits for a while now so I made sure I stop by the fruits section to check out the items available there. And yes, I did not leave empty-handed as I was able to get a bunch of fresh fruits to bring home.

I got a couple of these big oranges, a number of kiwi, a medium-sized papaya and this big guava. I needed the Vitamin C boost, plus am hoping my little man will finally take interest in them. He needed it, too, so he won’t suffer another nerve-wracking asthma attack. I really wish I can begin juicing soon. It would be great to be serving freshly-made juices to my son regularly at home! I just hope I can save enough to get me a nice juicer soon.

Anyway, can I just add that it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas? Why, you’d ask? Because of the lovely Christmas ornaments on display and the current sale that is happening in the grocers and the entire mall. A lot of interesting items are up for a much cheaper price at the mall’s department store, including those huge LCD monitors, this excellent bt-105 and a lot of other items. If I am not pressed for time and needed to be home much earlier, I would’ve taken a look around to see if I can get something nice for myself or the little man. Oh well, maybe next time!

Anyway, what fruits did you buy for you and your family recently?

Refreshing Avocado

food musings, fruits, desserts

One of the perfect {not to mention delicious} way to beat the scorching summer heat is to eat avocado. My love affair with this fruit developed rather late. My mama loved this fruit and she would make avocado ice cream out of it by just slicing off the fruit and mixing in a cup of condensed milk and putting in in the freezer to cool. It was too sweet for my taste so I seldom join her feasting on this dessert.

It was only now that I found out that avocados can also be eaten raw and they actually taste so good. Now it has become one of my comfort food and would always get one whenever I do my grocery rounds. I simply leave it in the ref to cool and then eat it in a few days.

Avocados are rich in fiber and even has more Potassium than bananas. They say eating this fruit is good for the skin and also helps reduce the risk of diabetes, as well as lower blood cholesterol levels. No wonder my mama loves to eat them! 🙂

Anyway, I have just ran out of my avocado stash so I will make sure to grab one later after I am done reading all about this engrossing post about men’s wedding rings.
