I consume nearly six apples per day!





















In the form of juice of course! (You know, those fruit crusher juice type machines). Three apples make one glass and boy it tastes much more sweeter and fresher than the ones in the supermarkets! I <3 love it!

And that way you don't get affected by the gellatine used to filter the apple jiuce to stop it from going cloudy ;)

This is what I suggested a long time ago...Jiuce makers are great :shade:

Very good, Brother Iqram but you could have actually stated those things for you, you know.

My favourite fruit is orange, they taste very nice and tangy also sweet and they have Vitamin C in them so good for the body and blood!

Very good, Sister Vaseline on your consuming six apples per day, well nearly!

There's gelatine through the process?

Yeah, you can make carrot juice, pear juice etc. (but apple juice is much much better) Naturalism at its best!

nah....only apples. I only eat veges and fruits if I feel like it (for example, in a salad or in a certin situation. For example, I saw a half cut tomato very lonely on an empty plate this morning :cry: Poor thing. So I did the right thing and finished it off! :rollseyes )

It usually takes me a fair while to actually eat one apple. So the only reason I liek it because it is more sweeter and fresher when it is freshly "machined" in liquid form.

MANGO!




It is a rich source of beta-carotene, which the body can convert to vitamin A..........(v.handy)




The green mango is valuable in blood disorders because of its high vitamin C content.




Excellent source of vitamin A, and vitamin C





Contains 81.71g of water (value per 100 grams of

I love all types of Fruits, any fruit, I could eat fruit all day.

It's a habit of mine, that whenever I go out I always take an apple to eat on the way.

But my most favorite? that would be pretty difficult.......I guess I love any fruit which is tart or sour/sweet. Oh yeah and I love green mangoes dipped in chilli soy sauce :D

One of my favorite subjects. I am a fruitaholic. My favorites:

Figs (we have about 10 varieties in Texas, I had 20+ trees before moving to Austin, 6 varieties so had fresh figs year round)

Fresh Lychees, expensive here but worth it

Dates of course, I prefer the huge ones from Saudi, fairly cheap at our local Halal market.

Kiwi fruit Very low cost here

Mangos, another cheap one here and nearly always can be found fresh.

Papaya I like the Mexican ones, gigantic nearly as big as a watermelon. Love the seed for salad dressings etc.


Pineapple My favorite are the Mexican sugar loaf, much sweeter than the Hawaiin, but not as pretty and smaller, but taste better.

They are Lychees. One of my favorites. I just noticed somebody mentioned catus fruit, I forgot about them because they are so common here. I love them. They are a low cost fruit that is often over looked. Here they are called "Tuna" (same as the fish). Very healthy have been a staple of the American Indians for thousands of years.

Prickly Pear Cactus Medicine (Treatments for Diabetes, Cholesterol, and the Immune System)


The first complete guide to natural healing properties and uses of the prickly pear cactus


Examines the scientific research promoting the cactus as a natural diabetes and cholesterol medication as well as its use in the treatment of obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, skin ailments, and viral infections
Explores the healing uses of prickly pears from the perspective of doctor, chemist, ethnobotanist, cook, and layman
Includes 24 cactus recipes—from Prickly Pear Bread to Cactus Candy
The prickly pear cactus—a plant that has the distinction of being a vegetable, fruit, and flower all in one—is destined to be the next big herbal superstar, following in the footsteps of St. John’s wort and Echinacea, according to author Ran Knishinsky. One of the driving forces behind its popularity is that each part of this plant functions as both food and medicine. It has been a staple in the diets of the people of the southwestern portion of the United States, the Middle East, parts of Europe and Africa, and Central and South America for hundreds of years.

Traditionally, the prickly pear cactus has been used as a panacea for over 100 different ailments. More recently, it has been the subject of blood cholesterol research trials sponsored by the American Heart Association. In addition to the results of this research, Knishinsky includes scientific studies on the antiviral properties of the cactus to treat herpes, influenza, and HIV, as well as its use in treating obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, and skin ailments. A resource section details the natural food companies that supply prickly pear cactus and a chapter of recipes offers 24 traditional and modern dishes using the pads and fruit of the cactus.

No Bro Woodrow they are not Lychees, Matakucing and Lychees are two different things. Lychees have red skin whereas matakucing has brown/yellowish skin. And the Lychee flesh is opaque, but matakucing flesh is clear........the picture is of matakucing.

I luv fresh tamarinds too Sis.. but after a while.. they make my teeth all squeaky :heated: dunno how to explain!! :D

BTW: Did you know that DAWM is a great for the hair..... a good old native remedie from our dammaajees ;)
you grind the seeds and then soak it in water until it all slimey.. (the smaller the bits the better).and then you put in on your hair, and put a shower cap or a towel on... and you let it stay in for a while and wash it out... try it out sometime InshaAllah! ;)

I stand corrected. Here in the gocery store they sell the matkucing as lychees, I guess I never saw a real fresh lychee then. My Son-in Law always called them matkucing. I thought that was Urdu for Lychee, :giggling:

In Standard Malay, rambutan is called as 'Rambutan'!!!:giggling: But in North Malaysia we call it "Bok Tan".

Dragon fruit is SO TASTY AND SWEET.... try it!!! The taste is somewhere between "Chok Nan" (a type of sweet thai mango) and mangosteen...

For my whole life I only met two Malaysians who hate durians.... and I've seen Europeans, Arabs, Japanese eating durian like crazy...:giggling: Durians are not really expensive especially in the northern region (especially in State of Perak), this season they sold 10 durians for RM 5.00 (in Taiping town).

Is it ... I thought there are only two types - the red ones and the yellow ones..... and the yellow ones are sweeter...



My favourite too.... because I dont eat durians, my parents would buy me mangosteen or rambutan.... while they are tucking to their durians!!!


Gulai Nangka (jackfruit curry) with shrimps .... yummy!!!



Soursop or "durian belanda" - the only "durian" I can eat or drink (makes good drink!!!)!!!

i like this fruit thats got little thorns all over the outsides and if it gets into your skin it does hurt so you gotta peel it under water and have tweezers ready to pull the thorns out...i have no idea what its called though??

wassalaam
the Malaysian don't think it smells bad, some loves the smell. But it does have a strong smell. They called it 'durian'.

What fruit is that? you have to pull the thorns out using the tweezers? :uuh:
