To thrive on the foods human design is optimized with one must first make the shift in perception that fruits are not just snacks. They are meals… Meaning one must eat enough of a given fruit to completely fill the stomach to the point of the body reaching the feeling of “satiation”. Most don’t know what actual satiation is. When Food is cooked or its of a material that our body does not recognize as out native foods (fruits, greens and veggies all of the more digestible varieties of fiber) will not trigger satiation and most have to use will power to avoid eating until stuffed or will resort to eating “deserts” because their core call for fruits still goes without satisfaction.
Here is an assortment of what I might during a typical day.
Bananas, peaches and prickly pears
I keep the counter top loaded up with at least a 3 day supply of fruits like bananas, peaches, prickly pears, papayas, mangos, apples, avocados in paper bags to ripen them, watermelons, cantelopes, honey dew melons, tomatoes, durian , rambutan, persimmons, blackberries, pineapples, plums, plus the frig with the same speed of soft fibered greens like romain and spinach complimented with an assortment of veggies like cucumbers, radishes, celery, carrots, various colors of bell peppers. Most evenings even if I’ve done a run of over 5-8 hrs I’ll make a large salad with perhaps a couple apples, a whole cucumber, 2-3 large tomatoes, 4-5 large romain leaves, 8-10 good sized radishes, 2-3 stalks of celery, and make a bowl of guacamole or add avocado to a store bought guacamole (Sprouts and Cardenas locally have tasty ones made fresh each day with no preservatives or other junk added.) I do like black olive slices in some of my salads. Other than these foods the only supplement I take is a B12 capsule as I am minus an appendix and had all the signs of b12 decency before transitioning to a raw Fruitarian diet apparently for decades including neuropathy in my feet. I no longer have that!
Papaya and bananas 😉
Prickly Pears… My favorite is the red ones as they are the sweetest. 5 for a dollar and that’s in the California. I’d bet they are 20 for a dollar in Arizona or even less in Mexico down south.
Durian is my favorite of all fruits.
