My First New Year's Resolution EVER: Eating Fruit 'n Berries in Season.

I didn't really plan it as a NY's resolution - I've been wanting to plan out my "fruit calendar" for months now, and it just happened so that I finally did it on... December 31st;-) So why not calling it my first EVER New Year's Resolution?;-) I thought I'd share with you the calender I put together - I hope it will give you some ideas also!

There's just something about having a specific "flavor" and "taste" for each month of the year - that's why I decided to "assign" two-three seasonal fruit/ berries that I will eat during a certain month . Some might think it's a bit too restrictive, but I think it's got to be fun! Also, it should make me more disciplined about including a huge variety of fruit and berries in my menu;-) So, this is what I'm committing to:


January: Mandarin, Orange, Coconut
February: Grapefruit, Cherimoya ("the most delicious fruit known to man" according to M.Twain!)
March: Pomelo, Kumquat
April: Mango, Pineapple, Banana
May: Strawberry, Loquat, Aprium
June: Blueberry, Raspberry, Cherry, Plum
July: Blackberry, Apricot, Nectarine
August: Watermelon, Melon, Peach
September: Apple, Pear,Grape
October: Kiwi, Fig, Quince
November: Persimmon, Feijoa (I have them growing in my front yard;-)
December: Pomegranate, Cranberry, Guava
 
Happy New Year!!! 
I truly hope we'll make it a happy, healthy and meaningful one;-)

  4. С Новым Годом, Машенька! Фрукты подобраны по сезонам - это отлично! В Америке, кажется, предпочитают соки из фруктов и ягод. Я думаю - лучше грызть:))). Иногда делаю фруктовые салаты.
    Это когда, например, в кислые ягоды добавляю банан или грушу и всё поливаю оливковым маслом .

  15. Happy New Year Maria! Although it might be a little bit too late :D.
    I've never had a new year's resolution myself. But I have to cringe at the thought of eating some of the fruits on your list simply because I'm a bit [OK a lot] sensitive to sour food :D. I do drink guava juice occasionally however.
    Anyway, good luck with your resolution!
