PS. I Love You
Palm Springs is a very special place. The desert sky, the late afternoon light, crisp air, UFO shaped cloud formations, picturesque hiking trails, and the moon hovering over the mountains in the morning, to name a few.
I've been to Palm Springs before but the natural beauty of this mid-century-mecca hits me like a brick every time. Another striking vision is the abundance of fruit trees lining the neighborhoods bearing copious amount of grapefruits, oranges and lemons so large and sweet.
The first thing I did was pick the rosiest grapefruits and brightest oranges and supreme' them for a citrus salad. (Supreme' is a knife skill which carefully slices the meat away from the pith) But as per my "Fast Food" blog post, just peel away the skin, any which way, and eat the sections - sweet, juicy and delicious!
Both grapefruit and oranges are high in Vitamin C and A, high in dietary fiber and one orange or grapefruit has only about 50 calories, depending on size! It's also a delicious way to replace processed sugar with natural sugar!
I had a wonderful visit with good friends, plenty of sunshine and the best citrus around!
I heart you, Palm Springs!
