June Photos, Day 14-- Time

 

14.  Time

 One of my favorite parts of summertime is yummy fruit.  For the most part, my eating habits are not all that great; it’s the main reason losing weight is so hard for me.  Between the basic meat/potatoes/bread meals that are my absolute faves, and the junk food I really can’t live without, it’s amazing I’m not the size of five people.  Like today, for lunch, I really wanted something from Taco Bueno.  Taco, mexi-dip & chips, quesadilla, something.  But, thankfully, come summer, it gets a little easier to eat at least a little healthier. 

Of course, even with fruit, I’m still a picky eater; there are more that I don’t like than I do.  But these are my favorites right here: green grapes, watermelon, and cantaloupe.  Maybe it’s because these are the ones that are really only good in the summer time.  I mean, I can get apples, oranges, or bananas any time of the year, and they aren’t much different than the warmer months, in either quality or price.  But these three—especially the melons—that’s not the case.  Grapes are usually pretty easy to come by all year, but they’re not nearly as good during the winter.  And melon, especially watermelon, becomes scarce around these parts once things cool off for the year, and when you can get it, you pay a steep price.  So it is that these are mostly a food of the summer months for me.  And like just about anything, limited availability makes it all the more attractive, right?

So, for today, fruit serves as lunch, and lunch time serves as the photo entry.  Not a bad deal at all.

But, for the record, though the fruit was really good, I’m still craving something from Taco Bueno.  But those last twenty pounds aren’t going to lose themselves, are they?

Are there seasonal foods that you enjoy?  What are they, and what time of year do you eat them?
