You’ve probably been hearing a lot about the value of a raw foods diet. A raw food diet consists primarily of uncooked, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, sprouts, seaweed, nuts and juices. It’s a vegetarian diet, but one that rejects any animal products. Its central tenet is that cooking and processing take out the majority of essential vitamins, enzymes and nutrients that our bodies evolved to thrive on.

Fruitarians, as the word implies, eat primarily fruits, with nuts and grains as well. A fruitarian diet also includes foods like tomatoes or avocados, which are fruits. A fruitarian eats nothing, which has been killed or stolen. All meat, dairy, and vegetable plants are supplemented with the thousands of fruit and nut combinations.

Fruit is nourishing and refreshing for your health. It doesn’t clog the body’s vital arteries; better still, it actually flushes and cleanses. A fruit diet also lightens our bodies and spirits and our eco-footprint.

Warning, you need to eat carefully if you choose a fruitarian diet, because it can be a challenge to get enough essential protein in your diet.

Fruitarians may eat fruits 99% of the time, but occasionally do indulge in the delicacies of other food groups.

Some great examples of what fruitarians can eat are: an avocado sandwich, a coconut milk shake or the purest coconut ice cream made from the milk and meat of the fruit, tomatoes, sweets made with pure maple syrup or date sugar, pecan pies made with fruit sugars, fruit shakes made of a mixture of orange and banana, pear and peach, pomegranate, papaya, and plum.

Fruitarians often include vegetarian items into their diet on occasion. These are some popular dishes: Tofu pizza with tomato and peppers (definitely no pepperoni), salads of tomato, cucumber, green and red peppers, nut butters such as almond butter or tahini, hummus, veggie burgers made of lentil or bean paste or tofu, a succotash of corn, lima beans, and peas.

Always remember to consult a physician and seek professional advice when embarking on a new diet or lifestyle.
