Fruit Diet Recipes
The best dessert is a serving of fruit, we all know that. But sometimes we want something richer, and plain fruit just won't do. The desserts in this section use fruit as the focus of the dish.
Quick and delicious desserts, no recipes needed:
- Instead of plain fruit, try a fruit salad which has been drizzled with nonfat, sugar free vanilla yogurt, then sprinkle it with low-fat granola!
- Anglefood cake is fat free and very low in calories. Make classic Strawberry Shortcake with a slice of angelfood cake, Fat Free Cool Whip, and fresh or frozen strawberries.
- Core an apple and fill it with raisins and a tiny amount of brown sugar and cinnamon, then bake or microwave until it's soft and sweet.

Any great recipes for a 3 day fruit fast?2006-11-10 19:51:42 by just_married
I normally enjoy a very healthy (as in big and healthy) appetite, but I am supposed to do a 3 day fruit fast as part of an ongoing "body overhaul" at my gym.
I will be including all fruits, and tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados and olives in my diet for the three days. I'm also going to "bend" the rules a little and allow olive oil, herbs and vinegar.
Other than modified greek salads, whole fruits, smoothies and hot fresh tomato soups, what kinds of recipes would you recommend to fill me up and get through these three days without my typical meat and potatoes fare?
Help with super-restricted diet: recipes?2002-03-19 10:28:02 by Blandville
I have put on a super-restricted diet for a month to root a yeast allergy out of my body. I am begging all of you fantastic cooks for help coming up with things to eat.
This is what I can have:
Veggies (but low onion and tomato)
Goat's milk yogurt
Limited fruit (lemon OK as seasoning)
Stevia (sugar substitute)
Wheat-free soy sauce
That's it! I'm a pretty good cook but I usually have a lot more ingredients at my disposal and I can use spices, which I can't now
