Basketful of Fruits

 

Fruits, anyone?

I am not into banana at all, except for tundan and kardaba or sab-a in Philippines that we can steam when riped or still steamed when unripe and dipped into ginamos. Among these fruits in my basket, I can only bear with oranges, a little bit of apple, and my savior– the grapefruits!

Are you a fruit eater?

I am! I love mangoes– riped or not. I love watermelon. Jackfruit. Grapes. Avocados. And so many more.

Hailing from a tropical country, the fruits that are found here in the US are different to what I have been used to. On my first days here, I feasted on apples, strawberries, and grapes– fruits that are rarely found back home and are really truly expensive. Now after several years of being surrounded with these ones, it’s the old-fashioned tropical fruities that I so missed and craved. Until my next Pinas trip!

One kind that I couldn’t get enough though is the Florida grapefruit. Oh man, this fruit yields a whole lot of antioxidant and vitamin C that can prevent me and my household from getting sick especially from colds and flu. It is our secret from staying healthy and cold-free and if you don’t know it yet, if grapefruits are accessible in your area, I hope you’ll give it a try! 😉

Ginataang Gulay

 

All fresh and healthy vegetables turned into a yummy viand that’s absolutely good for one’s heart and health– a ginataang gulay (mixed vegetables cooked with coconut milk) served hot with rice sounds very Pinoy, and even Bisdak at that!

I haven’t had this for a while now and so this old photo reminds me to cook some soon!

 

Squash, okra, string beans, cabbage, peppers, cooked with spices– perfect! Grew up having this as one of the main dishes and I got the “right” way of cooking this from my very own family.

 

See how simple and typical the foods on my table are? Simple, sure, but they definitely are tasty and appetizer! Our (mine and hubby’s, lol) bulging stomachs can tell! 😀
