Sunday - strawberries, blueberries, peaches and pomegranate juice, all mixed into a smoothie along with some protein powder so I hope it still counts toward this challenge. Later I ate a banana and half an avocado.

Today I plan to have a tangerine an apple and a banana. I have already had my OJ--that's first in the AM. Later I will write and let you know how my fruit plan went. PS Raisens are almost a daily thing but only a few cause I can really get carried away.

Raisins for breakfast and an apple after lunch.

According to Wikipedia...an avocado is a fruit. I'm not sure how nutritionists class it. For this challenge, it is a fruit.

Is avocado a fruit or a veg? I had a banana with breakfast, a cup of seedless grapes for a snack, a cup of seedless grapes for dessert, and an Alton Brown-style sardine-and-avocado toast.

I LOVE fruit! We should do a veggie challenge next weekend, that's my weak point. :)

I ate raisins and "atungas". Atungas grow here in Africa, on the equator. I do not know the English name for them. They are purple, about three inches long and have a huges seed. You boil water and then turn off the water and drop the atungas in the water and leave for a few minutes. It softens up the fruity outside of the seed. then you dip them in sugar or salt before eating them...the fruit, not it's seed. They take some getting used to as they reportedly taste like "turpentine". I like them. They are a health food, high in anti oxidants according to a friend but she's not yet sent me the link for me to read up on them.

I'm in. I usually eat a fruit with each meal. I am using the nutritional plan; it is then only thing that works for me at the moment. And the bonus incentive is by doing so I am learning what is healthy, fat, protein, carbs, and how they work together.

I have bananas, blueberries, tomatoes, tangerines, grapes, blood oranges, gala apples, and this huge grapefruit thingee I picked up at Whole foods the other day. Wow, that's a lot of fruit in the house...don't worry I share my fruits and veggies.

I have a big bowl of blueberries and yogurt for breakfast ea. morning. Then, during the day, I usually have a sliced up, big apple out of the fridge. Sometimes I have a couple of tangerines too. I usually have 3-5 fruits ea. day. They're great tummy stuffers, full of fiber, and nice and sweet.

This weekend I'm going to make sure I get at least two fruits each day, Saturday and Sunday. I challenge the rest of the team to concentrate on FRUITS this weekend.

If you're "in" with me for this challenge let us know. Also, each day let us know what fruit you ate!
