Use Nature as a mentor with the BioMimicry Institute.  Answer your own diet and ecology questions by asking nature.

California Rare Fruit Growers

Wow, check out the California Rare Fruit Growers.  Their motto is “Pushing the limits and the range of fruit growing worldwide.”  This website is for the planet, not just California.


I used Nutridiary to get most of the nutrition facts on fruit that I used for this book.  Go try it out.  I mostly just use the “foods” tab.  If you want, you can use this site to track your meals, and to help you plan out your diet.

Fruit Tree Planting Foundation

So you want to save the planet and get free fresh fruit for your good efforts?  Join the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.  Their goal is to plant and help others plant 18 billion fruit trees across the world.  Fantastic – check out their site.


Fruitabu is a fun site that makes fruit snacks.  I recommend whole fruit except for rare occasions.  However, the Fruitabu site is very energetic and creative.  See their catchy video and you’ll be singing along with them, “Fruit to the People!”

The Fruit Pages

The Fruit Pages site is dedicated to getting you to eat more fruit.  They have a newsletter, info about all kinds of fruits, and ten reasons to eat more fruit.  They suggest five to nine pieces of fruit a day and I’d say that’s a great start for most people.

The Green Smoothie Blog

This fun site is very refreshing and has lots of recipes for you to try.  Fruits and green leaves go well together and this site inspired me.  Their purpose is “Getting You and Your Family Hooked on Healthy!”
