I'm a fruit person. I've always had at least an apple a day, but certainly more than 2. Last year, while reading about raw food, I discovered just how healthy it is to have one cleansing day when one eats only fruit. It keeps your blood sugar at a normal level, while also supplying you with vitamins, enzymes, fibers and proteins (however little quantity). At the same time, they're easily digested and aid the cleansing process of the body by not creating additional work for the liver and supplying the necessary nutrition for the body to function properly. Considering the amount of toxins we burden ourselves with (meat/ eggs/ milk - I cringe at the thought about animals' diet of food supplements and antibiotics - alcohol, beauty products, the environment, etc.), having a day when we can take a breath and let our system recover sounds like a very basic thing to do. Some may say that we adapt. Maybe! Sometimes our cells mutate though and by the time we notice, it's time to visit a doctor. I'm not saying that a day would save us from health issues either. But it's a start and while I'm at it, make them two! So, I pronounce that this blog's fruit days are Wednesday and Friday!
How do you feel about having a fruit day?
