I am boarding the Orange Juice Train.
I am very much looking forward to the journey with you all.
I have got in several bags of locally grown Oranges, from a nearby farm. Toot toot!

Today was very nice because I got to meet the man who is growing my Oranges. And when I go on a mono diet, I get very close to my chosen fruit.
We have been buying bags of his Oranges from his small farm, from a stall with an honesty box, at the side of the road.
Today we went up to the farm to talk with him.
I bought five big bags of his Oranges for only $2 a bag.
His Oranges are superb, really sweet and tree-ripened with lots of nice little 'ripe' marks on their skins.
He told us that he grows them really naturally—no sprays, fertilizers or chemicals—hurray!
And he is a really nice guy too. So good to connect with the grower of my nourishment.
A very beautiful aspect of living on the Sunshine Coast is year-round access to local, good quality fruit.
I guess the longer I love here the more lovely growers I connect with. This network of fruit lovers, enables me to thrive and I am eternally grateful to them heart
Breakfast— 5 Oranges juiced by mouth
Lunch— 3 Mandies juiced by mouth
Tea— 4 Oranges juiced with a simple hand-juicer.

By nice co-incidence, I got an old 1933 pamphlet in the post today. I had ordered it weeks ago, and almost forgotten about it.
Apparently the guy who sent it, sent it to Ohio instead of Australia, but luckily it got sent back to him. So it arrived via a rather circuitous route.
Anyhow, the booklet is called 'Fruits That Help Keep The Body Vigorous' .
I had no idea what fruits it was about—turns out it is all about the bounties of Citrus fruits. It mentions some studies, in the first part of the twentieth century, that found children given fresh Orange juice in addition to their normal diets, had far less gum disease and far fewer cavities.
Breakfast—3 local Oranges hand-juiced, 2 local Oranges juiced in mouth
Lunch—4 Biodynamic Oranges juiced in Breville Juicer
Tea—3 local Oranges hand-juiced

My body is feeling more limber and flexible, I am really appreciating the beat in music, I am in Love with my local Oranges, they are loving and naturally grown and I just need to pick them up from his wee stall, put some dollars in the honesty box, and I have my nourishment.
I also got some Mandies for Cappi and a bag of Passion Fruit for Cappi from the same stall.
Love and Peaches to you all XX ♥
