Subject:         why do I throw bananas away?
Date: December 12, 2013 at 7:13 am PST

Hello Dr. Graham and others,

I have a question as to why do I often not choose to eat fruit even when I have it?

I have thrown away boxes and boxes of organic bananas because they became spoiled because I didn't choose to eat them. I would buy a case of bananas, very excited to eat them but then I would choose to eat something else...
It's not that I want to eat something cooked in particular, it's that I don't want to eat fruit... I could have apples, oranges and bananas ripe and ready to enjoy but as much as i don't like cooking I'd go and make myself plain pasta or porridge or potatoes and feel bad because i've got good fruit waiting for me...

Could it be because i grew up eating very good quality fruit from our garden, just climbed the trees and picked the best/sweetest peaches, apricots, plums, figs and ate them... so the store quality fruit is just not appealing enough?

Or it is that I'm not used to it yet? I feel great when I have a week or so eating mostly fruit but I feel that it's "forced" or I have to make myself or remind myself to eat it....

I would love to hear your opinion, or to hear from others who have struggled similarly...

I would love to eat a lot of fruit but most of the time it doesn't come naturally like it was when I just ate from the garden and then i actually wanted to eat that fruit... the only time now i really want to eat it is in the mornings when citrus sounds good because i'm a bit thirsty... Otherwise, I could have a table covered with fruit, looking all picturesque but just walk passed it to get cooked carbs. When i "fall off the wagon" and just give up and eat what i want, i almost never actually want to eat fruit, at least not what's available at the stores... (ps. watermelon is one exception, in the summer i eat a watermelon a day and i love it)

thank you!
