I Cut Up a Cantaloupe Today

Cut Up a Cantaloupe

While slicing up that there cantaloupe I got to thinking about Natalia Rose’s line from the The Raw Food Detox Diet about fruit:

Eat it alone or leave it alone.

Food combining rules say you should eat only eat fruit on empty stomach because when mixed with other foods, it can lead to fermentation, stomach pains and gas.  As I understand it, it has to do with the enzymes that are released to digest fruit vs. what’s released to digest other foods.

Trust not small ones with Greek yogurt on their face.

 – Ancient Proverb (probably)

After offering Maxine a sample of my Cucumber Melon Water:

“Did you like it?”

Cucumber Melon Water

“I tasted something slimy in there.”

Nice try kid.  You barely took half a sip.

Next time you are cutting up a cantaloupe or watermelon, throw a couple of chunks in the jar with your water and cucumber slices to turn Cucumber Water into Cucumber Melon Water.

It’s good. You can trust me. My face is clean.
