Fruitarian diet consists primarily of fruits and seeds in the botanical sense.
- Foundation: edible botanical fruits - preferably fresh;
- Extension: edible botanical seeds - raw, soaked, cooked;
- Addition: flowers, leaves, tubers - gathered without killing the plants;
- Further possible additions: seaweed, mushrooms;
- In some variations of fruitarianism: other ethically sourced additions.
Examples of fruitarian meals:
- a whole melon, followed by a bunch of apricots after a while;
- several large pieces of sweet fruits and a handful of nuts a bit later;
- a savory fruit salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, flax seeds or avocado, and herbs and spices;
- tomato-quinoa salad with avocado and arugula;
- a big bowl of fresh or unfrozen green peas or garbanzo beans.
