100 Kinds Of Fruits And 100 Kinds Of Vegetables
FRUITS & VEGETABLES


There are 100 different types of fruits listed above, and this is by no means a complete list of all the fruits that are out there.

As a matter of fact, there are nearly 10,000 different varieties of apples in the world alone!

And even the same variety of a fruit will be different, depending on where, when, and how it was grown.

So you can definitely have a lot of variety on this diet.



WHAT ARE FRUITS?



Fruits are often sweet tasting foods that grow on trees and plants, and that contain the seeds of the future generation of the tree or plant that they grow on.

It should also be noted that most fruits begin their life as a flower. (An apple tree for example will first produce flowers, and the flowers that get pollinated will then go on to become apples.)



WHY I BELIEVE THAT FRUIT IS THE MOST NATURAL FOOD FOR HUMANS



1. HUMANS HAVE A "SWEET TOOTH"

The reason that so many people drink sugary sodas, eat sugary candy, or crave a sugary desert right after a big meal (even if they already feel full) is because they don't eat enough fruit to satisfy their natural desire for sweets, and therefore their body is constantly seeking out some kind of sugary substitute to fill that void.

If you start to increase the amount of fruit in your diet, your desire to consume other forms of sugar will naturally start to decrease.

2. HUMANS DIGEST FRUIT A LOT EASIER THAN OTHER FOODS

A lot of foods can take hours to digest, but most fruits only take minutes to digest, and this is because by weight fruit is mostly water and fiber.

If you put an apple in a juice machine and remove the fiber, you will be left with apple juice, and if you then take that apple juice and put it in a dehydrator to remove the water, all that will be left is some sugar crystals and a collection of vitamins and minerals that are so small that you would need a microscope to see them.

So what this means, is that when you eat fruit, you are mostly consuming "water" and "fiber", and since "water" is the best remedy for "dehydration" and "fiber" is the best remedy for "constipation", your digestion will naturally be a lot faster and smoother when you are eating plenty of fruit.

In fact, some fruits are so easy to digest that you don't even have to eat them to digest them. (For example, if you take a piece of really juicy fruit such as mango or watermelon, and you rub it into your skin, the juice will actually get absorbed through your skin.)

3. HUMANS ARE ABLE TO GATHER AND EAT FRUIT EASIER THAN OTHER FOODS

* Humans have the natural ability to easily reach up and pick an apple off a tree, but it would be very challenging for us to catch, kill, and eat a wild animal.

* Lions have the natural ability to easily catch, kill, and eat a wild animal, but it would be very challenging for them to reach up and pick an apple off a tree.

Like any other life-form, the goal of a fruit tree is to multiply and keep its species going. So fruit trees will typically produce multiple fruits each year, and each one of these fruits will contain one or more seeds which will all have the potential to grow into another tree.

But because a fruit tree is stationary and can't move, if all of its fruits simply fall to the ground and remain under its branches, they will be in the shade and won't survive due to not having sunlight and having to compete with all the other fruit seeds that are growing beside it.

Humans and animals on the other hand, are able to travel great distances, so in order to spread their seeds far and wide, fruit trees will purposely produce good looking, good smelling, and good tasting fruits to make us to want to eat them, and in return we will spread their seeds for them.

The seeds inside of fruits are designed so that if they get swallowed by an animal, they can pass through the digestive track unharmed, and will even come out of the body encased in the fertilizer that they need to grow.


There are 100 different types of vegetables listed above and this is by no means a complete list of all the vegetables that are out there.

As a matter of fact, there are likely some edible and even some medicinal plants growing in your backyard that you always thought were just "weeds", so you can definitely have a lot of variety on the diet.



WHAT ARE VEGETABLES?



Unlike fruits (which grow on trees and plants) vegetables are the edible parts of the tree and plant itself, and some examples of this include...

- The Leafs (Spinach)
- The Roots (Potatoes)
- The Flowers (Cauliflower)
- The Stems (Asparagus)
- The Bulbs (Onions)
- The Bark (Cinnamon)
- The Grass (Wheatgrass Juice)



WHAT IF YOU DON'T LIKE TO EAT VEGETABLES?



Critics of healthy eating will often try to give people the impression that if you become a vegetarian or a vegan your diet will be limited to nothing but vegetables (and more specifically the vegetables that most people don't enjoy eating) and they will do this by making statements like...

"I could never be a vegetarian, because I couldn't eat nothing but broccoli and kale all day."

or

"I could never be a vegan because I couldn't eat nothing but tree bark and grass for the rest of my life."

But the truth is that vegetables are just one part of a healthy diet, and there are a lot of vegetables to choose from. So if you say that you don't like vegetables, my first question to you would be, "Have you tried them all?"

And before you try a new vegetable for the first time, I would encourage you to watch a tutorial video on YouTube demonstrating how to prepare and eat that vegetable, because it could very well make the difference between having a good first impression of that vegetable and a bad one.



3 WAYS TO GET A LOT MORE "GREEN STUFF" IN YOUR DIET




1. GREEN JUICES

There are countless people out there who claim that drinking green vegetable juice did amazing things for their health, and making yourself a fresh glass of green juice once a day would be a great way to start getting more greens in your diet.

If you're new to juicing, green vegetable juice will probably taste too bitter for you at first, so when you first start juicing you can sweeten up the juice by juicing some apples or carrots with the greens until you eventually start to enjoy the taste of green juice without the added sweetness.

But if you decide to get a juice machine, you need to know that the average juicer is only capable of juicing things that are big and juicy like apples and oranges, and will not be powerful enough to juice thin leaves like spinach and kale.

So you would need to purchase a special (and more expensive) juice machine in order to juice leaves. However, you can still make "cucumber juice" and "celery juice" in a regular juice machine because of how big and juicy cucumbers and celery are, and honestly, "cucumber juice" and "celery juice" are some of the best green juices you can drink in my opinion.

2. GREEN SALADS

Most people actually do enjoy eating salads, but the salad dressings that they pour on top of them will usually contain unhealthy ingredients which causes the salads to no longer be "healthy".

3. GREEN SMOOTHIES

Certain greens (like spinach, celery, and kale) actually combine very well with certain sweet fruits (like bananas, mangoes, and berries) and when you blend them together in a smoothie, the sweetness of the fruit will overpower the bitterness of the vegetables, which means that you won't really taste the vegetables, but you will still be getting them in your diet.

This is especially helpful if you have children who refuse to eat vegetables, because it's so easy to "hide" healthy ingredients in smoothies.
