Andrew’s “Normal” Watermelon-Mango Salad

UPDATE: If you cannot watch the video below, this one should work.

Some people don’t like the look of a healthy raw food diet.

After a grumpy old man told me eating so much fruit wasn’t normal awhile back, I set off to document a new kind of eating: “the healthy eater’s normal”.

It involves a lot more colorful variety, sweetness, and volume than most people are used to, and it bring about a new level of health and vitality.

In the video below I show off a simple salad recipe with only three ingredients which is both delicious, filling, and very different than the average person’s meal.

Check it out.

Don’t like sweet fruit salads? Go with amazing savory dressings and sauces instead.

    You should probably be more interested in sharing your video across the world than about musical background – which blocks it in my country.

    Hi Andrew,
    LOVE your videos!
    Just wanted to ask where you’re getting your mangos from?
    I too am in Chiang Mai for the year :-)
    Best regards,
    Nicky

    Oh and I’d also love to know a typical day’s food and exercise if you’d care to share.

    Hi brother, Andrew!
    Its so nice to see you! I love the video- so real and fun! I bought your savory dressing e book the other day. Hope you are well and enjoying life! I am working on moving to tropics and farming more. I am going to Thailand for Grant’s retreat April 28th – May 15th. Will you be there then? Where are you now?
    Blessings,
    Richard

    • Richard, my friend!

      Grant’s retreat is in Chanthaburi again?

      I’ll be leaving Thailand for the US after almost two years in mid May, but I bet we can make something work.

      I’ll see if I can get down to Chanthaburi to see you.

    Could you, please, upload your video without any music, so we can watch it, too? ^^ Thank you.

    Wow! Thanks Andrew for another brilliant inspiration.

    Next week I’m heading back to the Indian desert for another month under the hell hot sun. This time, instead of going crazy trying to find “normal” Western style food in an Indian city I am going to concentrate on eating fruit. There is plenty of fruit in the market. The information and encouragement I’ve got from your writing and now your fruit salad video will make the difference between misery and frustration and ultimately ill health and success with happiness. Pretty sure.

    Once again, thanks a million.

    • Hi Rosie.

      Yes, even when I ate cooked vegan food I found it was often easier to find fruit than healthy cooked food when traveling.

      And India is certainly a great place for fruit.

    Andrew, You’re meals look like mine, except I do need to quit the nut intake. what a cutie pie! when I went raw 2 years ago I ate such a large volume of food but lost 22 pounds in 6 weeks! and never felt better, I ordered you’re savory dressings and they are good. My question is… I have heard so much about how bad it is to spike you’re blood sugar level, and they always contribute it to fruit, what is you’re opinion on this, I am like you, I love my fruit, and can sit and eat 8 mangos at a time. some consider this bad, they say it’s like taking sandpaper to the insides of you’re blood vessels. (maybe this is good?) Eating lettuce with fruit may help to slow the digestion of fruit, thus relieve the spike in blood sugar levels? I would love to see you do a segment on this topic. Thank You
