Lately it’s been all about the fruit…
If you’re a regular follower of Green Thickies, you might have noticed that I’ve been sharing a lot of raw vegan recipes lately.
And the reason for that is because I’m back on a raw vegan diet myself and have been for the last 4 months.
This isn’t the first time I’ve done this, but hopefully the last time I switch diets as I’m planning on making this a long term thing.

I have SO much to share with you, and now that I’m feeling better I’m going to be making some video updates for you and sharing what’s been going on for me lately and why I’ve chosen this diet.
But in the meantime, all I can say is that, through all my experiments, I have learned that the best health comes from fruit, and for me that means basing my meals on fruit.
And if you’re worried about carbs and fruit sugar, let me say that there is so much research that shows that fruit is the optimal food for humans now. We just need to spread the word so everyone hears this.
If you’re still skeptical, the ultimate proof of a great diet is to put it to the test. Give it a try. Really notice the health benefits from day 1. Most people are blown away!
Eating fruit should be easy, but I know most people are still a bit confused as to what to eat in a meal. All I can say is eat until you’re not hungry anymore. And when you’re hungry again eat more fruit!
If you’re not ready to just tuck into whole fruit, here are some fruit based recipes to help you liven things up a bit.

This is definitely not one of those “dessert salsa” type of things where you eat them with cinnamon chips. No, no, this is meant to be eaten with salty, crispy chips and slathered on top of tacos. It combines sweet pineapple, mango, and strawberries with garlic, onions, jalapeno, and cilantro for a seriously perfect combination.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
