    Good thing you got in some sugar before the dentist 🙂 It’ll be okay. I’m sure your pearly whites are A OK. The way you use up leftovers is highly respectable, might I add.

    Ooh I think that fruit sounds lovely! I can only eat pears where they’re super soft anyway 😛 That sandwich looks amaze though…
    WELL DONE on the dentist!! It won’t be anywhere near as bad as however it seems in your head – I hope it all goes OK 🙂 I wish I could have your courage and face my spider fear, but alas – never happen!

    I wish I felt a sugar overload from that amount of dried fruit. alas…i can eat a lot of desserts before I feel it! I might be healthier if I ate sugar in small quantities like you do 🙂

    I;m loving the exotic fruit posts!

    I also love this sequence of sentences:
    “Sugar overload!
    I’m heading out for my dentist appointment now!”

    hope everything goes well at the dentist 🙂 I always dread when they floss my teeth.. I mean I do it a few times a week at home when I think about it, but the lady at the dentist always seems to gash my gums! ouchyyyyyy.

    Your dentist appointment will be great – I hadn’t gone in 2 years either and had no cavities & everything looked great!
    That fruit looks really interesting, I wonder if it would be good in a smoothie because of the sweetness?

    Good luck! I’m terrified of the dentist too and haven’t been in over a year!

    Good luck at the dentist! At least you decided to go now and didn’t put it off even further. 🙂 I agree though, the dentist has always terrified me, no idea why!

    It’s been around 3 years since my last dentist visit. Your post reminded me that I need to get my butt in gear on that one.

    THanks for the nice comment about the Boston Marathon! You’ve been an inspiration to me as far as your training regimen and staying positive!!

    Good luck at the dentist! I always dread it, too, and it is never as bad as I anticipate.

    The thought of the dentist is the worst. I went 6 years without seeing someone, but once I did I realized that it wasn’t bad at all. I’m sure you’ll be fine.

    Your food always looks so awesome, I wish I had your talent! 🙂

    Ahhhh good luck! I had such a nightmare dentist experience last year after not having gone for two years – I’ll pray for you that you don’t have the same!!

    Interesting – I’ve actually never even SEEN a Sapodilla…I’m going to have to look out for them!

    I don’t want to seem like the grammar police, but it should actually be “piqued” your interest. That word is a little pet peave of mine 🙂

      Mine is saying two times instead of twice/one time instead of once. Ahhh… I’m so type A!

    I just went to the dentist for the first time in three (four? five?) years and was given a clean bill of dental health with only a very minor lecture about flossing more regularly. Good luck!

    Good luck at the dentist. I am really due for a cleaning, but I am afraid of what else they will find that I need to get worked on.

    I always get nerves before the dentist even though I’m a regular 6-month checkup kinda gal. Hate having someone dig inside my mouth!

    At least the Mamey did not disappoint! Good luck at the dentist! Part of a healthy life is a healthy mouth, right? 😀

    I hope by the time I’m writing this comment you’ve already gone to the dentist and are all done! I bit the bullet about four years ago after not going for 9 years, and I was fine! I bet you will be, too!

    Haha, I love how you have a sugar overload right before the dentist- how rebellious lol.

    I had my first dentist appointment in over 2 years just last week! Good luck on yours-I’m sure everything is great. What an interesting and tasty looking lunch!

    Good luck at the dentist! My hubby is anti-dentist as well. I tell him you only get one set so you have to take care of them! 🙂

    I’m totally food-lusting your lentil loaf!

    Good luck at the dentist today. Ha, good pre-dentist snack of dried sugary fruit haha. whatever, they’ll clean your teeth today, right?? 😉

    The lentil/tabouli looks great! Yum! I’m so jealous of all the new and unusual fruits you’ve been trying too! 😀

    Good for you for facing your dentist fear! I really hate to go too, but it’s really important to go every 6 months for a checkup / cleaning. Your teeth health affects the rest of your body too! Plus, I LOVE the way my teeth feel after a cleaning. Amazing… and white too!

    you lunch looks very yummy!

    i’m sure the dentist appointment will go fantastic…and if not, better now than never!

    Hope the dentist went well! You are not alone in your fear. I finally have convinced myself that I really do need to go every 6 months so they can catch any problems before they get worse. I just had to have my first root canal. The pain before the root canal was the worst I have ever been in. Worse than childbirth. I was happy to go for the procedure just to stop the pain. from now on I book my next appt when I leave the office…

    Where I am from we call it Naseberry. It is a sweet and delicious fruit.

    Good luck at the dentist.

    I don’t like overly sweet fruit. I tend to eat it before it gets really ripe.

    OMG I JUST DID THE SAME THING!!! 2 years. I made the appt (shaking in my spaceboots the whole time). They called me 2 hours before to say I had the WRONG INSURANCE!!!!!!!! I made it 2 weeks ago??? That’s a lot of 2’s in one post, but so ironic to read your post!!

    Ahhh the denist really isn’t that bad. 🙂 Have fun. Also I love trying new fruits, of course it is much better if you really like it.
