How is this different from being vegetarian or vegan, then?Originally Posted by wikipedia
Some fruitarians will eat only what falls (or would fall) naturally from a plant, that is: foods that can be harvested without killing the plant. These foods consist primarily of culinary fruits, nuts, and seeds. Many do not eat grains, believing it is unnatural to do so, and some fruitarians feel that it is improper for humans to eat seeds. Additionally, there are fruitarians who believe they should eat only plants that spread seeds when the plant is eaten. Others eat seeds and some cooked foods.
Many fruitarians use the botanical definitions of fruits and consume pulses, while others include green leafy vegetables and/or root vegetables in their diet. Some occasionally consume some dairy products as well.
I don't think not killing things is the motivation, certainly del mar tortillas don't use wheat that was harvested saving the stalkOriginally Posted by Jessica Alana
Um roots, no. Dairy, no. Raw food, I THOUGHT so, although if they're fruitarian for "I don't want to kill anything!" rather than "Raw food is healthy!" then i guess it doesn't really matter if they cook it. I thought they were raw, but apparently not. <shrug>
