I'll eat about any seasonal fruit. Can't wait for my favorite - south Georgia watermelons. In the meantime I'll settle for my favorite standby - good old ripe bananas.

... totally agree..

i try to eat in season fruit and vegetables - i refuse to eat out of season fruit and vegetables that have been flown half way around the world.

... it means you have to be imaginative in a british winter though!

I am on a huge salad craze right now.

I recently read "Born To Run" (a great read BTW, it will make you want to run even if you have never enjoyed it)

In the book there was a nutritionist working with the author and she suggested to him salad for breakfast. I have been doing it for about 3 weeks and I really notice a difference. It is like coffee now, if I don't have it I crave it.

I do a huge bowl up on Sunday for my son and I to use over the week.

Equal Parts:
small dice celery
small dice carrot
small dice bell pepper

Some:
small dice Gr Onion
chopped fresh cilantro
chopped fresh basil
ground sea salt

Free Pour:
Cooked Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans)

Mix that all up and and put in a container in the fridge, then when you want salad chop up some red leaf lettuce or whatever then add a couple scoops of the above mentioned veggie combo... hit it with a really small amount of equal parts Sesame Oil (get the good stuff, dark bottle usually means good) and White Vinegar.

Sometimes I take 2, one for breakfast and one to go with my lunch.... My son won't even do the oil and Vinegar, he calls himself a purist... I laugh.

Yes, but you are Thailand. ;)

Let me tell you that with our climate in Scotland we wouldn't be eating much fruit. ;)

I also try and eat in season locally grown fruit, but you have to make exceptions if you ever want to eat oranges and bananas in the UK.

My favourite fruit is the Cox's Orange Pippin apple, it is by far the tastiest apple on the planet. I can do without those tasteless bright red apples and the revolting so called "golden delicious". In the off season I have tended to eat South African Granny Smiths, but lately there is a New Zealand grown Cox which although not as crisp as the superior British grown variety is a passable alternative.

One of my favourite fruit combos is to thinly slice a Granny Smith and add this to sliced strawberries (the Elsanta variety is preferred) then drizzle with a small amount of balsamic vinegar and add freshly ground black pepper. Superb.

Let me tell you that with our climate in Scotland we wouldn't be eating much fruit. ;)

I believe the need for fruit in the Scottish diet is minimal because you have replaced fruit as a food group with deep fried Mars bars. :~]

Being recently diagnosed as a diabetic, I can say that I have rediscovered the joys of fruit (and veggies as well).

If you aren't into eating fruits but would like to, then try putting cinnamon (shown to help control blood sugar levels by a Tufts University study), as well as other spices on them.

And using olive oil on veggies for grilling is simply divine. Crush a little garlic and enjoy.

No, but if you have a bottle of Ketchup, you could be getting your allotment of vegetables :)

We all run around in kilts with nothing under them, eat haggis and play the fiddle too. ;)

We are no strangers to a bottle of ketchup here in Scotland. :)

"Allotment" was a good word choice for UK readers by the way. [bing.com...] ;)

#1 I only recently learned that the reason American blueberries are so boring compared to the ones I ate as a child is not only that they're supermarket blueberries. They're an entirely different fruit. Turns out blåbær are not, as any idiot would assume, blueberries. They're bilberries. Which don't grow here :( (Wood sorrel does. This is a great relief, even if it's four times as big as it's supposed to be.)

#2 start with fruit salad
add bits of cooked chicken and shrimp
add slivers of fried shallots and garlic
sprinkle with crushed roasted peanuts, fresh cilantro and finely sliced chili peppers
dressing: a little bit of lemon or lime juice with a tiny bit of sugar

Although this is a Thai dish, it actually tastes better with non-tropical fruit. It's the crunchy texture and brighter, sharper flavor.

#3 The rats eat better than I do. One time at a nice restaurant I was bemused to find that the salad included what I think of as rat food. Organic spring mix. (The restaurant salad had a whole bunch of other stuff. I did say "nice restaurant", right? Not a wedge of iceberg lettuce and a couple of tomatoes.)

OK, so sometimes I steal some and eat it myself as part of a sandwich that also features homemade mayonnaise.* This is very easy with a blender, and keeps forever in the refrigerator. But just as often it's a bit of raw beef from the freezer. A few bites will keep you going a long time.

#4 Ooh, looka what bing's got. (I overlapped the last six posts.)

* SEARCH HISTORY

* serpent
* nnn {real search}
* organic
* See all
* Clear all · Turn off

Gosh, it all sounds so familiar.


* On homemade bread, of course, but that goes without saying. I do not use a "bread machine". Bite your tongue.

I was trying to be funny, I don't really believe it.

BTW have you ever tried to deep fry a mars bar? It is virtually impossible, I gave up after three attempts.

Re "nothing worn under the kilt"
A couple of years ago we attended a family wedding in the North of England where the groom had a vaguely Scottish name and he had decided that himself and his best man would be kilted. Later that evening during the reception the best man was sat opposite us on an adjacent table, he was in a state of inebriation and was slumped asleep with his legs wide apart. No underwear was in evidence, and it was not a pretty sight.

My daily lunch consists of half a sandwich and 1/2 - 3/4 lb. of various fruits, fruits keep you regular and provide vitamins you can't get in any other way.

But out of all of them . . . . Mangos. Nothing like them on Earth. Kiwi takes a strong second, but Mangos . . . yeah.

Me too.

Of course I added "bowl-o-chili" to the list of fruits and those slices of jalapeno, aka mexican ex-lax, keep you regular...

No offence was taken ... and you should believe it. The chippie in my village sells deep fried mars bars. Funnily enough I have never tried one (no wish to!) and I don't know anyone who has. I think they just advertise them for the interest it generates. :)

My kids eat a LOT of fruit - possibly because we limit other forms of sugar quite strictly.

I tend to mostly eat local fruit in season (got some mangosteens yesterday - off to eat them in a minute). I also like old varieties of everything from apples (no chance around here, but fairly easy in the UK) to rice.

Posers.

Let me know when you Scotts are ready to take on the big boys; Deep Fried Twinkies. And when you are really feeling it, we smear 'em with Baconnaise. And THEN we serve them in our school lunches...

We don't have twinkies in the UK, they sound a bit effeminate for something that is claimed to be more macho than a Mars bar.
Also what in the name of imaginary friend is "baconnaise" it sounds appalling.

Hey, just because they are a delicate yellow orchid color with a soft, creamy filling does NOT mean they are effeminate...

Baconnaise is, quite simply, the ultimate spreadable form of bacon!

There simply isn't enough saturated fat in regular bacon, so in the States we mix it with the artery-choking trans fat of mayonnaise to create a cholesterol bomb that mere mortals tremble at the thought of eating.

Ahh, a fried Twinkie, a jar of Baconnaise, a box of wine, and a Kid Rock CD. Life is GOOD!

Haha! I do think Old_Honky was referring to their name, but now that you have described them, they sound even worse!

BDW is right, here in Thailand we are lucky. Right now it is mango season and there are so many varieties just growing on trees everywhere! Eat it chilled with some sticky rice and coconut milk - one of the most popular dishes in Thailand and it tastes like heaven! Yum!

Thanks for the update.

Spreadable Bacon sounds like an abomination. In my world Bacon is a crispy thing not a slimy thing.

I imagined twinkies would be pink and would be packaged in lace and ribbons. If you look up the word "twink" in wikipedia you will understand my mistake. Not, I hasten to add that I was ever confused. ;~]
