♥ Day 80 Mono Orange Juice ♥

♥ Happy St. Valentine's Day ♥
 ♥ All Hail St. Valentine ♥

♥ Thank you to Cheetah, for the Beautiful Picture ♥

To all the Orange Lovers, as well as the Sweetheart Lovers out there, I thought on Day 80 of my Orange Juice Train ride, I would share a few little Orange snippets with you.
                             ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

~ Elizabeth Cromwell, wife of Oliver, gave her husband a hard time for quarrelling with the Spanish, because it sent the price of Oranges up to four pence each (quite a fortune in 1664).

~ Cardinal Wolsey used to carry Orange peel next to his nose  when riding on his mule to Westminster Hall, to offset the not-so-savoury smells of Tudor London.

~ Dr. Samuel Johnson used to save the Orange peel, of Oranges he had eaten, and carry it in his pocket.

~Samuel Pepys mentioned in his diaries that a trip to the theatre with his wife and friends, in the 17th century, ended up costing him eight shillings for Oranges (as Pepys stated that Oranges cost sixpence each, that was 16 Oranges for the group!)

~ The Orange was first known in England as long ago as 1290.

~ At the beginning of the 17th century, Sir James Lancaster, of the East India Company, forced all his captains to carry Oranges for the health of their crew.

~ P.E. Norris, in his book, 'About Fruit, Vegetables and Salad', says that: "Most people class citrus fruit as "blood cleansers", but few know that citrus fruits are even more important in COLD weather than warm, and more valuable for those who do hard manual labour than those who sit all day at desks, for citrus fruit conains something—whether citrus acid or vitamin C, we are not quite sure—which enable the muscles to function effectively. Without it they tire quickly."

~ Confucius was quoted as saying: " A Day without Orange Juice is like a day without Sunshine."

Have you ever gotten the flu since becoming a fruitarian. I have only been on the diet (i include leafy greens) for 6 weeks, but I just got the flu. I haven't had the flu in 10 years and am kind of surprised. Any thoughts?

Dear Esmee ♥
Thank you for your comment♥.
Yes, I have got 'flu'-like symptoms since being on a fruit diet, not very often, maybe once every few years.
The Natural Hygiene philosophy rings very true with me, and I see any elimination in the form of these symptoms as a positive sign that my body is eliminating toxins, and has the energy to do so.
There are many toxins in my environment that I have no personal control of, such as Environmental Pollution, exhaust fumes, and pesticides from nearby farms; so I welcome any elimination of these poisons. And I have faith that my body, if I give it the appropriate conditions, always acts in my best interests.

It sounds like your body could be having a good houseclean.

Have a Beautiful Day ♥
