For February I have chosen Watercress for the vegetable and Pomelos for the fruit.

I found myself substituting kale for anything with cooked spinach in it.

I didn't bother trying to eat through the membranes or the pith even though I know that's probably the most beneficial part of the fruit.

Oh I hadn't even thought about it interfering with some drugs.

That's my feeling on pomelos, too. I can't eat the tough fibers, same with grapefruit. Though, honestly, given the price of pomelos, I'll take grapefruits.

Wow, that's a lot of information on watercress and pomelos.

I tried my first pomelo tonight and it was very good!

I'm not a big grapefruit fan so I am a little hesitant with the pomelo, but the whole point of the challenge is to try things that I normally wouldn't!

I LOVE pomelos!! Yay! Even though they say to eat the membrane I find it a bit too tough. And I'll be on the lookout for watercress too!
