Gorilla since completing degree

#1 Postby Gorilla » Wed Apr 11, 2007 8:41 am

it was a thread where I talked about eating fresh fruit.

take anything anyone says with a pinch of salt,
and if they say eat more salt, take that with a slice of lemon ...

I wish my mouth were a vacuum and I could suck in all those foods at once--but then I'd probably get a huge stomachache! Blueberries, pomegranates and mangoes are my favorite fruits and are like food of the gods, if there were gods (hehe, I'm an atheist). I once posted on my blog that I should create a blueberry, pomegranate and mango cult where everyone worships those fruits.

Right now I'm content eating some raw pie for breakfast/lunch from Raw Food Made Easy For 1 Or 2 People; the pie is just blended fresh and dried mango in a coconut, walnut and date crust and it's awesome, like all the recipes in that book. I'm so happy I came across it because I find many raw cookbook recipes waaaay too complicated. None of the recipes in RFME call for dehydration, and all are vegan, except a few where she makes an optional cheese suggestion at the end for people who are vegetarian, which is annoying reading, but is the only really bad thing about the book. Oh--it's not a hundred percent raw because of a few condiments and other suggestions and one heated soup recipe, it's like 99%, which is okay with me (I eat a lot of raw but not completely) but maybe wouldn't be okay for others.

The book includes a helpful weekly shopping-list guide. The dessert recipes are so awesome, the ones heavier on nuts are so rich that you wanna eat more than you really should. I took pics of the banana pudding and the spring rolls, maybe I'll post them on my site.

Good luck going fruitarian!

* Apples

* Pomegranate

Makes your mouth water just readng the list doesn't it? :D


Hi Gorilla,
just curious: How many calries do you eat daily and how often do you eat? Do you eat any salads or strictly fruit?
The reason I am asking is I read your thread"Gorilla's anabolic secret" and enjoy the positive vibe you and Bigbwii put out. I've been vegan for nearly one year and am getting back into training. You have made great strides. I hope to do as well, just don't know if an all-out fruitarian diet is ideal for me.
Take Care and thanks for sharing your progress.

Take Care--Patrick

This actually looks pretty satisfying. I always worry that I'll get tired of just fruits even though I love fruit, but this variety looks very good! Good stuff man.
