All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

My watch after swimming 1.5K in 40:42 (25 yards x 66)

Happy about my first time swimming 1500 meters in under 41 minutes! Today I got to swim very late because of traffic and waiting in a post office (no Sunshine for my new sundress), but I was faster than yesterday by 1 minute: 1.5K in around 40:42 minutes vs 41:59. Not so tempted to switch from breaststroke to freestyle anymore. 

Dalai Lama

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.

Amino Acids

Protein plays a crucial role in almost all biological processes and amino acids are the building blocks of it.

A large proportion of our cells, muscles and tissue is made up of amino acids - 20% Of the human body is made up of protein. 

~500 Amino acids are known, 20 appear in the genetic code, 9 are essential for humans because they cannot be created from other compounds by the human body, and must be taken from food.

Amino acids carry out many important bodily functions: 

  • give cells their structure;
  • play a key role in the transport and the storage of nutrients;
  • have an influence on the function of organs, glands, tendons and arteries;
  • essential for healing wounds and repairing tissue; 
  • important removal of waste deposits.
