I fix a big bowl of seasonal fruits every morning, and every morning more and more of it disappears. Today there were a few slices of the muskmelon and two blackberries left after the cereal locust came through.
Not shown, but he adds all this:
Large, flaked, unsweetened coconut, chopped pecans, homemade yogurt, and homemade granola
to his cereal bowl of cooked five-grain flakes before putting on all that fruit.
It’s been a slow process (YEARS!), but finally it turns out that I can hardly keep enough fruit on hand for DH. He eats all this at breakfast; at lunch time, after a hearty lunch, we haul out another batch and he eats it with his after-lunch glass of freshly-pressed carrot/celery/apple juice, and, yes, a few slivers of deep, dark, delicious chocolate. (Thank you, Trader Joe’s!)
Dinner time comes along, and, after pigging out on the meal, the fruit comes out again to overpower a tiny dab of Ben and Jerry’s “Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz” ice cream, and gets smothered with chopped pecans, and a few more chocolate slivers, of course.
Where, you may well ask, does this man put all that food? Well, we’re hoping that all of these nutrients are helping to keep him alive. And, golly, he sure does love his groceries. This works out amazingly well, since it is obvious I like to cook! ;->
The banana tête–à–tête gave me a chuckle. I kept straightening them up, but as soon as I raised the camera, they were back smooching again.
