Fruitarianism Has It’s Pros and Cons Part 1

Okay, thus far you must have gathered that this book has been leading towards a vegan diet. You may have noticed that I actually am in praise for the raw option when it comes to consuming fruits and vegetables. However, I am quick to say, like with everything under the sun, even the raw vegan diet has its pros and cons.

Being someone who actually has tried the raw fruit diet for several months straight, in addition to the raw vegan diet (which would include leafy and fruit vegetables) and then incorporating steamed root and leafy vegetables, I can speak first hand on my experiences and share them with you.

At this point, supporters of fruitarianism will portray fruit as the ideal natural food and yes, if we go by what God instructed us in the Bible in Genesis 1:29 and for all the afore mentioned reasons of why fruits are so good for you, these supporters of being fruitarian could be right.

However, here’s what I think about such a diet and I will enumerate them to you:

It is a fantastic diet when you keep the following in mind

-You will need to seek for a variety of produce and buy in bulk.

-You would have to be willing to accept that you WILL in fact be a peculiar person. A great analogy will be to adhere to celibacy amidst the constant presence of people who may engage in casual sex. Imagine that scenario-then realize this is more intense. You will hear a lot of people ask questions like “So what do you eat?” , “Why do you eat just fruit ?” etc.

-Being fruitarian doesn’t mean you eat just sweet fruits. Items like Tomatoes, Avocadoes, Eggplant, Cucumbers are actually fruits and not vegetables, so you may have to incorporate them into your diet.

That said-in brief-here’s a summary of my experience with eating ‘differently’ give or take.

It always strikes me as funny that people would think or view my diet as strange when in actuality that’s how people should eat and furthermore, virtually all creatures not in captivity pretty much eat only natural foods suited to their kind. Also, it’s only in technologically advanced countries that people view a diet similar to mine as weird. I guess some people can’t wrap their minds around the fact that some cultures DON’T eat processed, refined, or packaged foods and were raised from infancy to adulthood with that in mind.

Presently, an average week for me looks like this diet wise

Mornings/Early afternoons (depending on when I get up) :

Unflavored Lemonade of 2 ½ lemons and 2 ½ quarts of water. I consume this sitting down and then I ensure to sit still afterwards for several minutes for it to be digested and assimilated.

On Weekday afternoons: Mostly nothing.

Early Evening Weekdays: 2-3 (or sometimes more) of whatever fruit is in season. For example

-Winter: January, February

Asian Pears | Apples | Tangerines |Valencia Oranges |Persimmons | Kiwi Fruit| Occasional Pineapple | Globe Grapes |


-Spring : March, April, Early May

Asian Pears | Apples |Tangerines | Cherimoyas | White Sapote |Occasional Pineapple | Mangoes (when they come around)


-Summer: Late May, June, July, August, September, Early October

Cantaloupe |Honey Dew Melon |Water Melon | Hayden, Kent and Keitt Mangoes (in that order) | Stone Fruit: Plums, Apricots |Cactus Pear | Some Sweet Cherries | Some Globe (seeded grapes)


-Fall: Late October, November December

Asian Pears | Apples | Tangerines |Persimmons|  Cactus Pear |


Then on weekends the same staples in the late afternoons/early evening and Japanese Yams and mashed avocadoes in the late evenings/night as the case may be (the recipe for this cooked meal is given here.)

It should be noted that this is not a set routine, some weeks I eat only fruits, some days I fast, some days I eat celery dipped in avocadoes, but the bottom line is nothing is set except:

1. I do not eat any refined, packaged, baked or processed foods.

2. I rarely eat grains (even if you see recipes elsewhere, for me a bachelor, it’s too much work for something that doesn’t taste as good as sweet fruit,  although, the meals are permissible in and of themselves.)

3. I personally don’t eat a lot of leafy vegetables. (I just don’t like the taste of them.)

4. I don’t do the mono-diet of fruit like I used to. In the past, I would fast all day then eat only one kind of fruit at night e.g. cantaloupes only, mangoes only etc…now that kind of fruitarian diet; I will not endorse.

The points I am trying to stress are that everyone is different. I have read several books on the subject of raw veganism and they all differ and give their own opinions but I am not them and vice-versa.

Friends we are all different, some people love salads, I personally don’t like them. Some people love tart fruits, some like sweet ones.

Some like mangoes, some like specific melons. Folks, even with the raw vegan diet, one man’s preference (food) is another man’s non-preference (poison), to rephrase that idiomatic expression.
