Summer is supposedly winding down around a lot of the country (here in the U.S.) but as Miami seasons go we are just in Hurricane Season .. which means it's hotter and wetter than summer. When I first moved here I was incredibly resentful of the lack of seasons and could not understand how people didn't mind getting sweaty all the time ... then I realized the major blessing that Hurricane Season brings each year: the fruit.
The fruit is amazing and unlike any other regular-grocery-store-variety of fruit and makes me dread the days when the heat is milder and the storms have passed. Though the "Winter Season" is anything but a winter and is only 2-3 short months I feel very nostalgic for the tropical Hurricane Season that returns to me my loves: Mamey, Mango, Papaya ... I could bathe in the tropical fruits found here (and I'm sure many other countries).
And that's kinda what I do, I bathe in the fruits for a majority of my meals. I find myself eating exorbitant amounts of fruit and slimming down in the process. It's just such a great time of year.
This past week I had a lot of the same, so here are some recycled pictures. That doesn't mean it wasn't exciting or delicious, because every meal is like an exciting feast for me.
Mango. Blended mango, chopped mango, sliced mango, mango in salad, mango juice, mango custard, mango ice cream ... you get the picture.
this salad. It's so easy and one of my favorites.
I love doing these WIAWs because it shows you what a real life raw foodie looks like. It's not fancy. It's not complicated. And it's really not pricey if you don't want it to be. It's simple, fast, easy, approachable, and so incredibly healthy!
