    I am currently taking a food challenge, along with someone special in my life. We are trying to eat forty different vegetables a week. The purpose is for gut health, with the idea that diversity in your diet encourages diversity in the bacteria in your gut. This is difficult. We are not sure if it includes fruits, which would help. Apparently, it's all to do with the fiber in your diet.

    This past week, I ate nineteen different vegetables. And a couple of those were in very small quantities so you have to question do they count?

    This coming week should be better as I have ordered more variety in my weekly food delivery.

    The idea comes from this book, which neither of us have read, so we are not experts.

    Isn't that a Kiwi fruit on the cover? Looks like fruit counts.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    That's what I asked and wondered, but I haven't read the book. And fruit certainly has fibre. (That's not a typo here in Canada)

    Oh, I misread the title as "Hearty eating"!
    Nothing to see here...

    Bought lots of bananas 2day...A banana a day keeps dark thoughts away!
    'Listen, Mister god!
    Isn't it boring
    to dip your puffy eyes,
    every day, into a jelly of clouds?'

    A good way to burn out. Why not eat the vegetables/fruits you like, rotate and add new ones a little at a time. Humans did not evolve eating like that and certainly ate the same foods over and over depending on seasons and availability. Someone has to write a book and put some new spin on it.
