Fruitarian

English: A fruitarian 'recipe'.

Fruitarians, as the word implies, eat primarily fruits, with nuts and grains as well. A fruitarian diet may also include foods like tomatoes or avocados, which are fruits.

Fruits are nourishing and refreshing for your health. Fruit does not clog the body’s vital arteries; better still, it actually flushes and cleanses. A fruit diet also lightens our bodies and spirits, in line with the general lightening of our “planetary vibration rate” which many higher sources tell us is taking place at this time.

A person on a fruitarian diet needs to eat carefully, because it can be more of a challenge to get enough essential protein in your diet. A fruitarian eats nothing which has been killed or stolen. That replaces meat, dairy, and plants with the thousands of fruit and nut combinations on the planet. Fruitarians can eat an avocado sandwich, a coconut milk shake or the purest coconut ice cream made from the milk and meat of the fruit, veggie burgers made of lentil or bean paste or tofu, a succotash of corn, peas, and 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. A pizza of tofu, tomato, and pepper (not pepperoni), salads of tomato, cucumber, green and red peppers (but not lettuce, cabbage, or celery), nut butters such as almond butter or tahini, hummus {chickpea paste}.

In other words, fruitarians may eat fruits 99.9% of the time, but occasionally do indulge in the delicacies of other food groups.

Types of Vegetarians

Vegetarians are not one homogeneous group that just doesn’t eat meat. There are different categories of vegetarians as diverse as the reasons for going vegetarian in the first place.

A Vegetarian is generally defined as someone who doesn’t eat meat. But someone who is vegetarian could conceivably eat dairy products such as milk, eggs and cheese.

  •  Lacto-ovo vegetarians doesn’t eat meat, fish or poultry, but does consume eggs, milk or cheese.
  •  Lacto vegetarians consumes milk and cheese products, but doesn’t consume eggs.
  •  Vegans are people who don’t consume any animal or animal by-products, including dairy food. They eat only vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and legumes. They also don’t use animal products, such as leather. Vegans don’t use white sugar because it’s often processed with a substance derived from animal bones that whitens the sugar.
  •  Fruitarian vegetarians, eat only fruit. Their rationale is that fruits, including fruits such as tomatoes, are self-perpetuating and don’t need to be planted to create the food source. They consider it a way of eating that’s most in balance and harmony with the earth, the most natural.
  •  Raw vegetarian (or living food) diet is based on the assumption that cooking food takes most of the nutrients out of it, and to get all of the nutritional value, vitamins and amino acids from food, its best consumed raw, or juiced. If cooked at all, it should only be cooked to slightly over 100 degrees, so the nutrients are still retained.
  • Sproutarian vegetarians eat only sprouts. Sprouts are very nutritious because they contain all the elements a plant needs for life and growth. The endosperm of seed is the storehouse of carbohydrates, protein and oil.

Then there are the vegetarians that I can’t get a grasp on – lets see if it makes sense to you:

  • Pesce-vegetarians include fish in their diet
  • Pollo-vegetarians eat fowl, such as chicken and turkey, but avoid red meat and pork
  • Flexitarians mainly eat vegetarian food, but will occasionally make exceptions

The more restrictive you become with your diet, however, the more educated you need to become to be sure you’re getting all the necessary proteins and vitamins that you need to support good health, especially muscle and heart health.
