Eat your fruits and vegetables!

A major problem with the diets of many folks these days is that they do not eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, instead deriving too many of their calories from highly processed wheat, corn, and soy. There’s nothing wrong with wheat, corn, or soy, per se, but they don’t provide many of the vitamins and minerals necessary for human health. So consider this LEGO build by Barbara Hoel to be a public service announcement: eat your fruits and veggies! Your gut will thank you. Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Still Life with Fruit

This still life is awash with bright colors, with red apples, green, dark red, and purple grapes, orange oranges, yellow pears, and perhaps a dark red plum. Yummy! Organic curves are hard to do in LEGO, but Barbara has done a great job sculpting them. And then there is the tablecloth beneath them all, with every shade of blue imaginable featured. Someone must have invested in some LEGO DOTS sets! If only the background were black velvet, this would look great surrounded by a gilded frame and hanging on the wall of my dining room, reminding me to eat my fruits and vegetables.

Boisterous banana gone bonkers

For some reason this reminds me of Pickle Rick from Rick and Morty, but I’ve gotta hand it to Kevin H. for a great usage of one large LEGO part that stands out. The yellow kayak now transformed into a mad banana going postal for some unknown reasons. I’d like to think bananas tend to have their rotten days as well. Perhaps a slip of the mind, or maybe it’s just not very a-peeling to think about not being able to live to a ripe old age.
