Simple Jackfruit Smoothie

1C jackfruit (ripe)
1C almond milk
1/2 C water (add water as needed if not using high powered blender)
1/2 frozen banana
2 C spinach

Combine ingredients in blender.
Enjoy.

Once I read that jackfruit reminds some of bubble yum, I had a hunch that it wouldn’t disappoint.  While I have to say that jackfruit is the most labor intensive fruit I have encountered, it is totally worth it.  The best tip that I can share with you is to use coconut oil or any kind of vegetable oil to remove the sticky resin that you will get all over your hands and kitchen counter as you cut the fruit. 

Here is some background info on the fruit and some great vegan recipe ideas for the unripened fruit.

Katie Makkai – Pretty

This really resonates; as, I’ve been contemplating the pointlessness of pursing ever elusive beauty standards, while women suffer and die at the hands of misogynists the world over. It seems like a vacuous distraction from far more important things. While there is an undeniable connection between physiological and psychological wellness, pursuit of the beauty standard doesn’t have any real connection to healthy living.  Radical self-care is the way to genuine health for your whole self (mind, body, spirit).

Here is a great shot of Barry from week one. 

I recently discovered the existence of cat cafes. The video below is of one in Seoul. Assuming that they don’t starve the cats to make sure that they approach visitors, it seems like the best idea ever.

Mangosteen, Rambutan, and Horned Melon

I always plan on trying new things when I go to the Farmer’s Market, emphasis on plan. I usually end up filling my basket with old favorites and saving the new items for another day.  Today I stuck with my mission to try at least one unfamiliar item and ended up trying three new fruit.  Two were winners.  One proved itself to basically be an overpriced and labor intensive version of a cucumber. Check out these directions for eating horned melon and tell me it doesn’t sound a little involved for fruit.  Had I known that it is sometimes called a cucumber melon I would have at least had an inkling that the super exotic exterior was disguising an underwhelming interior, but since it was labeled otherwise, I was not prepared for the let down.
