I'm not much of a fruit person. I like mangoes, water melons and papayas occasionally, but, these days, pomegranate has become my favorite fruit.
The reason for this sudden change in my fruit preferences is that my haemoglobin levels have dipped again (they've gone below 8 this time) and I'm trying to raise them without having to take those daily iron pills that wreak complete havoc on your intestines! Besides, I'm not too sure those pills work that well either. I took them for more than 6 months straight last year, and look where I stand now!
Well, the heat wave has just made things worse for me. The anaemia, combined with excessive fluid loss, i.e. dehydration, has brought my blood pressure down to 90/60. Yesterday was the first day since opening my store that I had to take a full day "Sick Leave"! :(
So, it's up to these pomegranates now, to restore balance in my circulatory system. Surprising thing is that I used to avoid pomegranates earlier at any cost, but now, I actually like them. I feel good after eating them or drinking pomegranate juice.
I can understand now how Bella (from the Twilight series) relished drinking blood while she was pregnant with the vampire Edward's child! Apparently, our body automatically gets attracted towards whatever it needs.
Anyway, what's your favorite fruit?
