30 Bananas a Day!

After spending just over 2 weeks at the Fruktifest fruitarian festival in France I have learnt many things and had some wonderful experiences. The Broceliande forest surrounding
the eco site where we stayed is indeed enchanted. I met some amazing
trees and was humbled by their magnificence. The true embodiment of
unconditional love, providing food, air and shelter for all. What
incredible beings. I was struck by how we have mistreated them for
centuries, killing them and cutting them down to make useless things.
That is another story though. I will focus on some of the more
interesting and positive aspects of the festival.

I met some inspiring fruitarians from Italy who have been doing much experimenting and research into the fruitarian diet. They claim that although humans came from the tropics, the part of the Rift valley where
we  are thought to have originated at an elevation of around 1300m is a
prefect environment for apples and other fruits of the rosacea family
like peaches, plums, cherries etc. Not only do they grow there but they
are evergreen, providing fruit all year round. They claim that these
fruits, particularly the apple are far better for our health than
tropical fruits. Some of the points they made to support this are as
follows:

- apples and other rosacea fruits grow at the exact height for humans to easily pick off the trees

- They all have edible skins

-They fit perfectly in our hands

-They are very easy to eat with little or no mess

-Apples can be carried and stored for months

- Trees grown from apple seeds will always produce a new variety of apple

- Apples are the only fruit that promote peristalsis

- Apples have the lowest amount of protein of all the fruits and the highest fructose to glucose ratio. They claim that fructose is actually better for us than glucose as fructose is transported into the cells
without the assistance of insulin.

-People that base their fruitarian diet around apples and rosacea fruits have better health and longevity for the following reasons:

1. Eating tropical fruits will tend to create a hyperglycemic condition in the body and create nutritional imbalances because of the high glucose levels

2. Acid fruits like oranges cause many health problems including tooth decay, demineralization. They point to people dying on mono orange juice diets and others suffering health problems as a result of these
as evidence

3. Long term apple eaters like Yana Louis tend to gain muscle and strength and do not suffer from the same issues people eating acid fruits and tropical fruits face.

Other interesting points about apples are

-The word paradise originally meant apple orchard

-You don’t eat any seeds when you eat apples

-Apples are a very modest, unstimulating fruit and grow all over the world

I have always shunned apples on my fruitarian journey thinking I needed to eat sweet tropical fruits. I remember however, the joy I felt as a child eating apples. I have decided to include a lot more apples in
my diet and to experiment with ‘appletarianism’ for a while. If apples
truly are the best food for us then I want to experience it for myself.
It adds a completely different dimension to my views on a fruitarian
lifestyle and the ‘perfect climate’. It basically means that we can live
almost anywhere on the planet and be healthy as apples grow almost
everywhere. We just need to start planting apple trees!

Anyway, more on apples later. I’ll keep you posted on how I progress with apples. In the meantime I’m about to set off on my bike from Bordeaux along the Canal du Midi to the south of France. There are
apparently lots of fig trees along the way to eat from and I’m hoping to
make it to Corsica for some Mediterranean bliss. Swimming, hiking,
eating figs off the trees and sleeping on the beach.

Peace and Blessings to all

I'm not going to worry about fructose/glucose ratios or calcium/phosphorus ratios too much. I can't believe there's only a handful of fruits that are ideal for human consumption. I don't know but I'll fix my probelms when they come up :)
Most fruits have higher phosphorus than calcium, there are only a few that don't, such as figs, oranges, grapefruit, blackberries, blackcurrant and the passion fruit has nearly 6 times the amount of phosphorus to calcium, so the apple is not that bad at all compared to other fruits

Yup. Banana is worse and this is 30Bananasday.com
WOW, Great info! Thanks much for sharing! While on my two week water fast over the solstice I had dreams/visions/epiphanies/intuitions about going on an apple mono diet. Apples seem to fill me up more than melons or citrus or even bananas (which I love too).

It's funny, though, apple prices in N. America are higher than bananas which have to be shipped in. But I know there are tons of apple orchards all over the place. Could you elaborate on the evergreen statement? From what I know, apple trees are seasonal, harvest in the fall and sometimes skip years. If we could find an apple tree that would fruit year round like a banana, we'd be set.
I believe he meant the trees are everygreen, not the fruit it self. And if he meant the fruit is evergreen then perhaps he meant in that elivated region.
Quite
good to know, I love apples, sweet and crunchy they're like candy and everywhere in the UK.
thanks jaz! ill do some more research on that
I feel ya, Josh.
I can pick apples right off the tree in my back yard, but I think they're disgusting. All the apples around here are local, and most people enjoy them, but I definitely don't.
Go on a three or four day water fast and take a bite of an organic fuji as your first meal. (Gotta come out of water fasts veeeeery slowly.) It'll reprogram your brain about apples.

I also forgot to mention in my last post ... the miracles of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. ACV cures include allergies (including pet, food and environmental), sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout. I've cured a dermatitis skin condition, moles and an infected cyst with it. Drink a little vinegar before a salad (or as a salad dressing) and the acidity will help with digestion and keep the greens in your stomach longer.


Here's an expert from earthclinic.com ...
Vinegar has been used to cure ailments for centuries. For hundreds of years, folk medicine practitioners have recommended daily doses of apple cider vinegar, not only for specific medical problems, but also for overall food health. In Asia vinegar is called the friend of Chinese herbs because it is often used to process herbal preparations. It is also successfully used in modern Chinese medicine.

Historically, the origin of vinegar was never specifically noted. Vinegar was probably discovered when one of our ancestors found that wine exposed to the air would turn sour, thereby creating vinegar. It is amongst the oldest of foods and medicines know to man. For its healing ways, vinegar has been used for thousands of years. In 400 B.C, Hypocrites, known as the father of medicine, treated patients with vinegar, making it one of the world's first medicines. Throughout biblical times, vinegar was successfully used to treat infections and wounds. For centuries medical textbooks have listed various ways to use vinegar. These uses include everything from keeping a sharp mind to purifying the waters of the body and to easing pain and alleviating dozens of other ailments. Modern laboratory analysis verifies the antibacterial and antiseptic properties of vinegar. Many of the old-time uses are just as applicable now as they were centuries ago.

I admit I'm a noob in regards to Natural Hygiene.

"Nothing in the world has the power to restore health but the affected organism itself."..."There is no recovery where cause is not removed."..."Drugs and surgical cures remove effects; cause is ignored."

So, agreed ACV is a drug and is crap. If you need ACV, then you're doing something wrong. But I'll add that it helped me through the transition phase from SAD to 100% raw. It opened my eyes to the fact that there are cheap, non-pharmaceutical, age-old remedies out there that are 100x better than the standard antibiotic/drug/cream/lotion prescription.
That's right
