Default I want to be fructovegetarian/vegefructarian

I want to eat a diet consisting solely of vegetables and fruits. I know it sounds extreme, but I think I want to do it anyway. I could get carbohydrates from squashes and essential fats from avocados. The only macro nutrient I would be low in is protein. Leafy green vegetables contain all of the amino acids, but not protein in larger amounts. Also, protein is the least important macro molecule. We should be getting 50% of our calories from complex carbs, 30% from essential fats, and only 20% from protein. Therefore, starches are the most important, healthy fats are next, and then protein.

Anyway, I just thought I would put this goal of mine out there.
