HAWMC: Health MascotPosted: April 24, 2012
For the month of April, I’m participating in the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge from Wego Health. Each day I’ll be writing a health-related post based on the HAWMC prompts, aiming to challenge myself as a writer and health activist. Thanks for following!
I’m not sure why, but my chosen health mascot is a unicorn. I guess because they are just beautiful, magical, mythical creatures that inspire adventure and joy. Pure joy. And while I was searching for the perfect image of a unicorn to bring my healthy mascot to life, I found this gem:
That’s a unicorn made out of dragon fruit. It’s pretty epic and I’m not sure I could do any better than that. So, dragon fruit unicorn, you’re my health mascot!
But seriously, I like that it was made using an unusual fruit. This completely aligns with my belief that we should step out of our food comfort zone every once in a while. The fruit bowl in our kitchen contains the same stuff on any given day: bananas, apples, avocados, maybe something a bit more exciting like pineapple or mango, and clementines in the winter. I know that a dragon fruit isn’t native or seasonal to England, but neither are bananas, avocados, pineapples, or mangoes. Funny how past trends have dictated which tropical fruits we eat now.
So I hope my dragon fruit unicorn (actually, fruitarian Anne Osborne‘s dragon fruit unicorn) inspires you to get creative and magical with your food choices this week!
