Mulberry Season Adventures

These are NOT pesky trees that stain our sidewalks and shoes.

These are tough trees that withstand harsh winters, and provide perfect purple bundles of nutrition that literally fall from the heavens!  They have survived urbanization, pollution, and deforestation.  Give them some praise will yah’.

We get such a thrill from checking them daily for ripeness, and having that green light once they start to fall.  Having the experience of eating something straight from the source, with no steps in between is so rare these days.. It’s called being high on life.

The excitement from the kids to pick.. ‘just one more’ is such a joy to watch.  We are designed to climb trees, and our fingers are perfectly made for picking fruit like this.

Eating high fiber, high water, nutrient dense, antioxidant rich food is how we thrive and survive.

Berries that we bring home are used for hot days like this.  Just blend some with frozen bananas and water for purple nice cream.  Easy and delicious!

Keep your eyes open for fruit in your area..

Our wild purple raspberries are next 🙂

Stay tuned.

 

 

 

Welcome to Eden (recipe?)

Eating food, just food, why is that so strange? That’s how they did it in Eden, why shouldn’t I strive for that?  Well I do, every day.  It sounds too good to be true.. living in harmony among the animals, eating in abundance.. uhhh that’s basically what it feels like to live this way!!

Simple.  It’s my favourite way to eat.  No actual recipes, just delicious combinations.  Like this one.. juicy tomato, ripe sweet mango, lettuce and basil picked from the garden.  Nothing more.  It’s fabulous!

I do believe this is the food in heaven’s buffet.  The God that I believe in provided me with this to eat, and so I happily accept the offering.  I don’t come up with reasons why this isn’t enough, or unsatisfying, or missing something..  I focus on why it is perfect.  THANK YOU.  Living food for a living body.  I celebrate what this does for me, and I reap the benefits.
