Your blog is a really cool blog. I love it! I just wanted to ask for tips on how to began yoga? I've been wanting to start but I'm not exactly sure how or where to start. Thank you.

Well my biggest tip would be to go to the library and check out a book on Hatha yoga.  That would be a great start :) Than find a good yoga instructor to teach you how to perform the asanas :)  Remember that diet plays a mayor role in the art of yoga…and it is preferred to have a plant based diet if one wants to practice yoga successfully.  It makes yoga so much easier and much more enjoyable :) Meditation is the goal of yoga…so get familiar with that :) I hope this helps :) Much love and ripe peaches :) XX :) Orlin H.

Love your page. Just wondering what you do for money and how you afford your fruity lifestyle. I am HCLFV myself and I moslty eat bananas and lots of oranges and cherries but I'm broke so I gotta just stick with cheaper high carb fruits. Do you have any suggestions on how I can eat more fruit?

I already answered your question…however, I would like to add that I make my living from being a yoga teacher and from some other odd jobs here and there.  I lead a simple lifestyle and am able to afford the foods that keep my health good…because my health is my one true wealth :)  I would like to suggest the option of working at a farm or a produce market to get access to good deals or even free produce.  And foraging can also help you some.  I’ll be away in about nine days at the Woodstock Fruit Festival so I won’t be able to answer many questions while I am there…so you should ask me anything you need within this time frame.  I will go to Ethiopia, Africa immediately after the festival (well 7 or 8 days after the festival) and I don’t know how the internet situation will be there.  I was hired to be a tropical fruit expert at a farm there :) Anyways, I’ll be back by the end of September…so just ask away now or after September :) Much love and ripe peaches :) XX :) Orlin H.

i asked this question already just wondering if you got my message but you are very inspirational to me and I was wondering how you afford to eat this way. Like how do you manage your budget eating nothing but fruit. Just wanted some tips and advice from someone who has been doing it for so long. I hope this message finds you and peace and blessings my friend :)

Thank you so much for your question.  I am sorry I did not get to your message sooner.  I would be pleased to help you out :) Okay so about my budget…I like to forage for some of the fruits that I consume.  Sometimes I get fruits for free from a friend’s tree or something.  I also volunteer my time at tropical fruit farm and get paid with free produce grown on the farm.  But when it comes to purchasing produce.  I tend to buy whatever attracts me fruit wise.  Since I don’t consume greens I get to spend more money on great quality fruits.  In general I don’t like to pay more than $5 for one fruit (unless the fruit is durian or jackfruit or something else that is rare).  I tend to get good deals on fruits when I buy them in bulk and I usually ask for a 10% discount whenever I buy in bulk.  I research where different produce markets are in my area and I always look around for better deals.  I like to bargain for my fruits sometimes especially at the farmers markets and such.  I also don’t spend any money on things that I deem unnecessary in my life…because I value my health more than most material things.  I have not gone to the doctor in a very long time so I have not spent any money on medical expenses.  It does not bother me to spend a good sum of my money on delicious fruits :)  I don’t personally find fruits expensive and if your are dedicated to this diet you will find great deals on them.  Get used to buying fruits that are in season to save money.  And buy in bulk. You can also get ugly (nice and ripe) fruits for very good deals.  Especially with fruits like bananas and peaches.  I personally don’t consume bananas as a staple because I don’t particularly like them in large quantities.  So my staple fruits are mostly melons, oranges, and mangos…and then over the year I consume myriad more varieties of fruits from all over the world.  It is important to find what fruit or fruits you can make your staple fruits so that you can always have them around.  Most people seem to do well with mangos and bananas.  My partner does well with bananas and mangos.  Over time you will get the hang of this lifestyle and will save money.  Just get resourceful and passionate about what you are doing.  I hope this helps …if you have any more questions please let me know.  Much love and ripe Caimitos :) XX :) Orlin H.
