A Fruit A Month

Photo Source wikipedia

An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away,Your Food Shall Be Your Medicine - just two of the many proverbs/quotes telling us the importance of fruit,food and diet.Fruits,been there as a good diet for man since ADAM n' EVE.They so rich with minerals, vitamins, etc.They are known to be good remedy for some of the common illness and for much serious health issues.For example,Grapefruit juice is known to be good for cold while Pomegranate fruit is good for your heart.It's shame, if you are like me who doesn't take as much as fruit as needed.So i thought of this idea of making us eat more fruit through FOOD BLOGGING which we love and have in common.So here is AFAM - A Fruit A Month.Rule are pretty much the same as other Blog Events.

1.Based on the fruit of the month, you have to come up with a recipe with the fruit in any form fresh or dried.

2.Post the recipe on your blog and if you could post the picture also by 20 th of the month.

3.If you can, write more info about the fruit.Like my mom always says Pomegranate fruit is good for your healh especially for your heart.Some of might know about home medicine used for common cold/fever using fruits.

4.Email me your name,the pic,permalink of your recipe/pic to with AFAM -(fruit name)as the subject.

5.Fruit of the month will be announced during the first week of that month. You have to email me your post by the 20th of that month and the final round up will be done in the last ten days.

So here is the fruit of this month "BANANA" suggested by Lakshmik.

Hoping to see more of you participate and spread the word about AFAM around the Blogworld.


Easy!!:))If I already have a recipe,can I just link to you with a photo? I don't have a banana dish right now but if I had one...

Great Maheswari! I love this event! I just tried banana muffin and now I have a good reason to post it immediately. Iam there for the event. BTW thanks for taking up the meme. I understand how one gets hooked to crochet. I was once a mad at it!
