More Fruits!

Fruits are my absolute favorites! They are staples in my grocery cart every time we go to the supermarket to replenish our small pantry. Some of items that I always put in my cart include oranges, mangoes, and banana. I have recently discovered the love for grapefruit and I make it a point to get a piece or two of this fruit whenever we do our grocery. One of the local supermarkets are well-stocked with fruits, even rare ones like blueberries that you do not see in the other groceries, so it is always a treat going there.

Fruits are perfect for desserts, especially for those who do not want the additional calories that sweets come with. They are also perfect to munch on while working on an article about sandberg bass or for snacking.

This rainy season {also known as the flu season}, it is very wise to load up on fruits that are rich in Vitamin C to keep the snuffles and other sickness at bay. Juices from lemon and calamansi are also perfect to soothe sore throat and the beginning of coughs. Just put a spoonful of honey to make it even healthier and more effective. It is also always wise to shop for the fruits in season as these fruits cost a lot cheaper. I am eyeing to get a kilo or 2 of my favorite lanzones before they are gone from the fruit stands, so I am scheduling a trip to the local market as soon as the rain lets up. I sure hope I can also influence my little one to eat yummy fruits soon. I try sneaking in pieces of grapes and slices of oranges and apples onto his lunchbox but they always return home, untouched.

What is your favorite fruit and where do you get them?

kiwi is my new fave fruit

That is right! Kiwi is my new favorite fruit. Looking back, my Papa bought this fruits on several occasions just so his children can taste it and I wonder why I did not fell in love with it the first time I had a bite. I simply love its succulent taste and its texture. It is now one of my faves and I make a mental note to get a couple whenever I go to the grocers.

I recently got a few pieces when I went out to look for high temperature adhesive and run a few errands. When I got home, I took out my bento tools to create a few car-shaped pieces for the little man. Although Jared dismissed them with nonchalance, I rather enjoy creating these cute kiwi cars and ended eating them all up, too. Oh how I wish I can get the little man to eat these babies. They are a good source of a number of nutrients and minerals, including Vitamin C, as well as Vitamin E and dietary fibers.
