I have been pondering upon trying fruitarian diet for sometime since I finished my 7 Days Water Fasting adventure a few moths back. However, I barely got a straight 7 days without anything getting into the way - barbecue parties, wedding parties, etc. Yes, even after being as unsocial as I am, I do get invited times to social events. But finally I did manage to get these uneventful 7 days, starting today :).
What the heck is Fruitarian diet?
A fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant.
Based on the above definition, it appears that cucumbers, tomatoes and avocados could be considered as fruits as well. This is a good thing as following a strictly fruitarian diet is likely to have some negative impact on protein and good fat needed by the body. Avocados are rich in healthy fat. For proteins, I decided to resort to nuts (almond, cashew, etc) and seeds (sunflower seeds, chia, pumpkin seeds, etc). In most cases, nuts are fruits with a hard outer shell while seeds are edible miniature plants enclosed within a seed coat. Technically, most nuts are also seeds, but all seeds are not nuts.
I probably managed to confuse with all that information above, but this kind of clarified things a bit for me to build the database of food that I could consume over the next 7 days.
