All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Here are two examples of two random satisfying days of vegan fruitarian food for one female and one male persons.

How is your "perfect" day of food looks like? 

Yesterday was one of mine (Fruitarian Lena):

  • two glasses of freshly made organic orange juice,
  • a great smoothie with strawberries, purple grapes, bananas and oranges,
  • ~50 g of organic raw zucchini chips (with sesame and sunflower seeds),
  • a few dehydrated tomatoes,
  • tried 4-5 pea sprouts for the first time,
  • a big bowl of organic blueberries and blackberries,
  • a pound pack (1/2 kg) of very ripe dark red organic strawberries!

A response from a guy: 

I started with a smoothie today for breakfast (coconut water, 2 bananas, flax seeds, 3 cups of frozen berries/peaches) and a kg of strawberries.

My lunch was a salad 2 yellow bell peppers, 1/2 kg of tomatoes, 1/4 kg cucumbers, 2 small lemons for juice, with blended flax, sesame, and sunflower seeds and dried mint, cumin etc...

Then for dinner I had a handful of peanuts, another kg of strawberries, and juiced 1.5 kgs of carrots, 1 lemon and 2 apples.

 

 

Isaac Bashevis Singer

What do they know-all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world - about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. 

Food Energy

Food energy is chemical energy that animals derive from their food and molecular oxygen through the process of cellular respiration. Humans and other animals need a minimum intake of food energy to sustain their metabolism and to drive their muscles.

Organisms derive food energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins as well as from organic acids, polyols, and ethanol present in the diet. Some diet components that provide little or no food energy, such as water, minerals, vitamins, cholesterol, and fiber, may still be necessary to health and survival for other reasons. 

Using the International System of Units, researchers measure energy in joules (J) or in its multiples; the kilojoule (kJ) is most often used for food-related quantities. An older metric system unit of energy, still widely used in food-related contexts, is the "food calorie" or kilocalorie (kcal or Cal), equal to 4.184 kilojoules. 

<>Fats and ethanol have the greatest amount of food energy per mass, 37 and 29 kJ/g (8.8 and 6.9 kcal/g), respectively. Proteins and most carbohydrates have about 17 kJ/g (4.1 kcal/g). 

Conventional food energy is based on heats of combustion in a bomb calorimeter and corrections that take into consideration the efficiency of digestion and absorption and the production of urine.
