KOS continued...

The main problem with Kids of Steel is that it is held during the winter when fresh produce is hard to obtain (not to mention outdoor exercise, which is greatly reduced).

So, being people who don't have to stick to the school schedule, we are continuing with our nutritional and exercise endeavors.

This week :

Cucumis metuliferus

aka Kiwano or Horned Melon

If you wish, you may read more HERE

Kind of cool on the and spiky

The inside is much like a cucumber (the seeds are surrounded by gel) but the seeds are not as juicy and harder to chew. The taste? Not much at all. 

 I think, given the $3 price tag, I'll settle for cukes from the garden. Still, it's good to know that if the kids ever find themselves in Sub-Saharan Africa, they won't be completely unfamiliar ;0)

We are blessed.
