  • Huge Papaya

    I found a very big papaya in a local growers store, around 13 inches long. And it was good too.

  • Lucky Sun Hours

    Unexpectedly, the Sun went out, and I was happy all the way to the pool, in it, and back.

    7K Walking (total), 1.5K swimming.

    This is me, Lena, in the bright Californian sunlight after a swim.

  • After a Swim

    This is me on the way back from pool after swimming. This is me, Lena, after the usual 1.5K  swim.

    I've been swimming in an open pool for many weeks now, almost every day, almost the same distance - 1.5 kilometers.

  • Non-Sweet Fruit Salad

    Non-sweet fruitarian salad - basic, easy, and quick

    Let me tell you how I make a basic non-sweet fruitarian salad, step by step, with 12 pictures.

    This is a very simple recipe. Making this tomato-based salad, you can skip any ingredient, according to your preferences or mood, and still have a decent fairly healthy basic fruitarian or frugan meal. It takes less than 10 minutes to make it if you already have tomatoes and some avocadoes, chips, or greens. The dishes are easy to wash afterwards.

     The ingredients you can usually get in any grocery store, in any season. People who have no interest in following any special diet can enjoy this salad too, as well as all vegetarians - it is vegan.

Grains

Grains are small, hard, dry seeds, with or without attached hulls or fruit layers, harvested for human or animal consumption. The two main types of commercial grain crops are cereals (e.g. wheat, rye) and legumes (e.g. beans, soybeans). Seeds

After being harvested, dry grains are more durable than other staple foods, such as starchy fruits (e.g. plantains, breadfruit) and tubers (e.g. sweet potatoes, cassava). This durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, transported, stored for long periods, and milled for flour or pressed for oil. Major global commodity markets exist for canola, maize, rice, soybeans, wheat, and other grains but not for tubers, vegetables, or other crops.
