Fruitarian Contrarian

I read a few articles about the Fruitarian Diet. That regimen that includes Mother Nature’s Bounty leaving out 3 of the 4 of the food groups, hmmmm. I may rail on about getting your 5-10 a day of fruits and veggies daily, but a diet full of fruit and devoid of everything else  is well simply nutty. You certainly could use a few… nuts that is, just thinking about existing on such a narrow plan. Don’t you think?

Our body functions optimally when it gets all of the vitamins and minerals, macronutrients, water, fibre, the works every day. That’s what the manual ordered. There is not only a chapter on fruit but a variety of food choices to run our system best.

I read the biography of Steve Jobs and he was a self proclaimed Fruitarian. That’s what spurred the idea to call his company Apple. A plum of a business idea but his diet was simply incomplete.

This time of year some of us are itching to try something new. To consider a diet detour of sorts as we get antsy for spring. Well add a new food you haven’t tried perhaps, learn about it, how to prepare it and branch out your repertoire. That’s new without compromising your own well being while experimenting.

Sweet fruit for thought.
