Friday DO: Eat Something Fresh | A Rose in Bloom

Most of the time when we think of fresh, clean eating, we think of running out to the local farmer's market or Whole Foods. While these are both wonderful choices that always give my meals an extra special touch, nothing compares to picking something fresh off the plant from which it came. Not only is eating something within a few hours of picking the best way to get the most nutrients possible, there is something so... clean about eating an apple fresh off the tree or making pesto from basil leaves just pulled from the plant. And the taste! Oh, the taste of freshly picked anything is enough for me to crave returning to an apple orchard soon....

This weekend, I hope to pick more fall apples, or maybe even some pie pumpkins to make something unique and new. What fresh eating options do you have lined up for the weekend?


  1. I love fresh food! The picture looks tasty.

  2. I definitely agree! When I have my own place I want to grow a lot of food. An avocado tree would be a dream.


    1. Oh my goodness yes! I think heaven must be filled with avocado trees.

  3. I could use a fresh peach or pomegranate!

  4. I want to go apple picking too! what a great way to have fun and find something fresh and delicious! Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog, I’m following you on Bloglovin and Facebook (also with my personal account), I hope you can follow me back to stay in touch.


  5. That is so important to do! I've been eating MORE fresh fruit. Much better snack for you than sugary and processed foods.

  6. Fresh eating is the best! I do not have much lined up for now, unfortunately, since the harvest season is ending. However, in August and September I had my pick of the 20 different fruits, vegetables and herbs I grew in my garden :)


I am always happy to hear what you think and will get back to you as soon as I possibly can. Please, do not leave follow for follow or ask me to check out your blog, or any other form of spam. Simply leave a link and I will be happy to look when I get the time. :)
