31 Day fruit feast recap #IKHLW


Looking back on the past 31 days, I am happy I participated and I plan to eat a mostly fruitarian diet. There are a few things I wish I would have done differently.

  1. I would have started the day with a juice. When I started the fruit feast I had just come off of a 114 day juice cleanse. I feel like having a juice in the morning would have been something my body was used to. I felt like I shocked my system a little bit. Plus I wanted to keep juicing a daily part of my diet.
  2. I would have exercised more. I really didn’t start exercising until the last week of the fruit feast. Daily exercise was one of the rules of the feast. I just never got started until the last week. Daily exercise would have helped move more toxins out of my body, get my lymphatic system moving and help me tone.
  3. I would have not tried durian. I love durian and I’m glad I tried it, I just wish I hadn’t tried it during the fruit feast because of the fat content and how eating it noticeably slowed down my digestion.
  4. I would have been more practical with my fruit shopping. I bought a few things just because I could buy them in bulk for a reasonable price like the case of blueberries and the bananas. 
  5. I would have planned my meals better. There were times I found myself hungry and those are the times when I made rash decisions and bought durian.

I really enjoyed being on fruit for 31 days. I like how uncomplicated it is. Fruit is filling and sweet and most of the time you just grab and go.

So for the first day after the fruit feast I started the day with fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice. I snacked on jackfruit and I had some durian that wasn’t very good. For dinner I decided to make a zucchini noodle dish. 

I spiralized two zucchini and added

  • Olives 
  • Sundries tomatoes
  • Leaks
  • Broccoli 
  • Hearts of palm
  • Fresh dill 
  • Trader Joe’s 21 spice salute 

For the sauce I blended together 

  • The zucchini scraps 
  • 2 short celery ribs
  • 1/2 of a golden tomato 
  • Two cloves of garlic 
  • Some nutritional yeast 
  • 4 soaked sukkary dates
  • Lemon juice (I used the juice of one lemon and it was way too much)
  • 1/2 of a small shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves 
  • Cayenne pepper 

Then I combined it all together.

It smelled amazing! Like I stated, I used way too much lemon juice so the sauce had a tangy flavor that overpowered everything else. The dish still tasted good and I’m going to make again tomorrow with a few tweaks.
