Let me explain -- I, obviously, eat Paleo -- and in doing so, I eat plenty of veggies and fruits, the other day I had business lunch near *Santa Barbara, California and in my salad, I was given an avocado.
It blew my mind. I haven't tasted an avocado like that for +10 years.
Everything about it --- texture, fragrance, taste -- sung the fact that it had been left to ripen on the tree and picked at the right time from the tree.
Even we Paleo folks, who buy fruit/veggies from farmers markets, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's -- eat so much "fauxd" (fauxd = faux food e.g. tomatoes that look & feel ripe but have no flavor to speak of), that sometimes you forget what real food tastes like.
When was your last non-fauxd experience?
*They grow avocados in the Santa Barbara area.
