Fruitarians are a subgroup of raw food enthusiasts who consume the majority of their calories from fruits (including avocados, tomatoes and peppers). The authors of Becoming Raw wanted to demonstrate a menu that would fit the fruitarian lifestyle and meet all of the dietary reference intakes of vitamins and minerals.
You’ll see from the photos below that it takes a lot of fruit to meet all of your nutrient requirements but if you love to eat, maybe this is the diet for you. I could have blended the fruits and greens into smoothies but I just wanted to experience this menu in a simple, raw state. Looking back, I think I should have used my blender because I felt really full all day on this menu. I went with the lower calorie amount (1700) and still had trouble finishing everything -the salad in the photo does not do justice to the 4 cups of lettuce, 2 cups of kale, 3 cups of napa cabbage and 3 cups of raw veggies it contains. I think it took me an hour to eat it. Phew.
