So I’m trying to make better food choices as part of my 47 for 47 challenge, and as a result I’ve been trying to eat more fruit. When I was visiting my mom it was easy. Every morning a plate of delicious cut fruit magically appeared on the breakfast table. While visiting I counted no fewer than ten types of fruit in the house at all times. There were juicy grapes, sweet pineapple, succulent peaches, crisp apples, delicious berries of several varieties, and more. It was fantastic. When I got home I resolved to continue my fruit eating ways. A trip to the store later, and there were several types at my house. Funny thing though, they just weren’t as good. The grapes tasted sour, the strawberries lacked any flavor at all, and the nectarines were crunchy. Nectarines are not supposed to be crunchy. I didn’t give up, though. I keep buying fruit, and sometimes even eat it. The cantaloupe in the fridge right now is wonderful. I’m told I’m too picky about fruit, and that it’s supposed to taste like that. I disagree. Fruit can be one of nature’s most wonderful delights, or it can be a revolting mouthful of sour mush. I’ll keep trying, but some fruit is just not that good. I wish my mom and her grocery store were here to help.
