    Sounded good until the part about the runs.

    Use to snack off the fruit trees on my way to school in the mornings in California. Apricots and Plums in the medians and Oranges overhanging the fences by the sidewalks. it was like an all you can eat buffet.

    Pecos Cantaloupes are in season here in Texas and soon Hempstead Watermelons.

    Oranges, grapes, apricots, plums, apples, celery and carrots all the time.

    My friend in Singapore just sent me a photo of veggie curry a couple of days ago. Gotta make me some of that!

    It's not very healthy, if it's food. It's dead, or dying, in the case of fruits or veggies.

    Did you possibly mean healthful?

    (sorry to be that guy;))

    I like to wander around my yard eating weeds. Neighbors probably think I'm mentally retarded but that's okay. There are quite a few edible weeds that are actually really good for you and some taste pretty good too. Eat em right there or take them in and mix them with garden veggies for a great salad.

    Sure.

    Healthy: free from disease or pain : enjoying health and vigor of body, mind, or spirit

    Healthful: : beneficial to health of body or mind

    A great number here have cited nuts as "health food". Every time I question someone on that they tell me that they are high in protein therefore healthy.
    Look a little deeper....they are tremendously high in fat too. One doesn't negate the other.
    Now I'm not saying that nuts are inherently "unhealthy". Anything in moderation is ok but let's call it what it is here.... they are NOT "health food".
    2 tablespoons of peanut butter (all natural) has 190 calories with the majority coming from fat....you do the math.
