Welcome to the ultimate pocked-sized reference manual for the conscious eater. The Fruit Companion presents a practical approach to sourcing, knowing, and appreciating nature's most sweet and nourishing foods.
Made for the casual eater and fruitarian alike, The Fruit Companion exists to showcase the beauty and vibrance of fruits, educate and inform about the unique qualities of each fruit, inspire confidence in living a sustainable plant-based lifestyle, and assist seekers of health in developing a natural and intuitive relationship with food. Packed with full color photos and practical information on every page, this book will help guide the reader toward making more informed choices about nature's most sweet and nourishing foods.
This book explores the seven main types of edible fruit and how they digest, based on their ratios of sugar, acid, fat, and starch. Also when each fruit is in season, its water content, its most common varieties, if it ripens after harvest or not, and how to tell when it's perfectly ripe. There are also detailed warnings about toxins for the fruits that may contain them. Additional sections include answers to important questions like choosing organic vs conventional, sourcing food, and other resources to follow up with for further study.
To celebrate the release of the book, there will be a launch party at The Dancing Elephant in Lake Worth, FL on Wednesday November 15. Starting at 5pm there will be a meet and greet, followed by live music, seasonal fruit tasting, an author talk, and open discourse.
