What are mono meals?

A mono meal is eating one food at a meal. For example, four bananas, four mangoes or four cups of grapes.

Why do I want to eat mono meals?

Some advantages of eating mono meals include:

  • Easy to prepare, most food are wash, peel and eat.
  • East to digest, this can be good for people with inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS) or colitis-crohn’s disease.
  • May help with overeating, one food for a meal makes it easier for our bodies to determine when we have had enough food. The body doesn’t get confused by numerous tastes and textures of multiple foods.
  • Can be used as a way to detox the body. I once ate just bananas for two weeks, three meals a day. I found myself having side effects from a medication I had previously taken. Obviously even though I had stopped taking the medication, it was still in my system. I also found myself getting tired every afternoon. I needed more rest because my body was cleaning itself up. By eating only bananas my body became very efficient at digesting and assimilating them. This allowed my body the time it needed to detoxify itself.
  • Mono meals are also low fat raw vegan – LFRV!

Eating mono meals sounds boring because we are so used to eating many different foods at a time. Eventually your tastes will change and your sense of taste will heighten allowing you to experience all the different flavors in just one food.

Mono meals are fruit meals.

Vegetables and greens do not contain enough calories to be eaten as a mono meal. Remember fruits are highest in vitamins and water and second highest in minerals and fiber of any food. Breakfast and lunch are generally the easiest meals for people to try a mono meal. Be sure the fruit you have chosen is ripe and that you have enough calories.
