A Fruit Gastronomy Invitation

One must eat to live, not live to eat.


My love for fruits and vegetables started way, way back to my parent’s house.  Our family oriented us that fruits and vegetables are the healthiest, colorful yet the best tasting food ever.   Packed with lot of nutrients like vitamins and minerals, it is no doubt that their substance would stay us healthy.

Even you saw me posting those food escapade via my social media account, still most of it were fruits and vegetables that I have to maintain and eat them regularly.


  • Boost my energy level if ever I munch those apples or grapes while doing work
  • It also control my weight even I eat a lot
  • Last which I like best – my outlook to life feels great always

Eating is definitely my favorite activity.  Still, one has to do something to maintain one’s health.

Sharing to you some of my veggie/fruits pictures:

Best part, will we gain weight if we eat too much fruits?  According to my friend who is a nutritionist, fruits are low in calories which is a great choice for weight management.

If one is also eating healthy food, you are doing your body a favor – protecting it against numerous disease and prolonging your life not just eating to satisfy yourself.

That is maybe the reason, I will be attending a road trip fruit gastronomy for one day headed by an International Chef.  I would like to learn more about nutritional value of fruits and incorporate it to our daily dishes.

Join us!
