All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Short after an unusually early run today I measured my heart rate, oxigen and stress levels, and have chosen my mood - happy. And then I have noticed I was apparently quite stressed :)

As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace.

Phytonutrients

Plant foods contain thousands of natural chemicals, which are called phytonutrients or phytochemicals ("phyto" means "plant"). These chemicals help protect plants from germs, fungi, bugs, and other threats. Phytonutrients are not essential, but they may help prevent disease.

More than 25,000 phytochemicals are found in plant foods, and six important phytonutrients are: 

  • Carotenoids
  • Ellagic acid
  • Flavonoids
  • Resveratrol
  • Glucosinolates
  • Phytoestrogens
