  • Vlog 14: Sand and Water - Wind, Noisy! (5K Walk)

    A walk on the beach on a very windy day in search of some solitude. Sorry for so much noise - I tried to cover the microphone on my phone, but it did not help a bit.

  • Trader Joe's, Orange County

    I shop in Trader Joe's not that often, but in this video I like to share with you my favorite things in it, and the way I make my rather frugal decisions. 

  • Vlog 11: Night and Morning in Missourri

    Random visuals from my days: traveling USA, Kansas City, Missouri, soap and shampoo not tested on animals.

  • Vlog 12: Driving in Kansas City

    The last vlog from Missouri or Kansas. Houses, one with a truck in it, another one with an airplane on top.

  • Vlog 13: A Weekday Eve

    Late afternoon till evening: shopping for seeds, getting gasoline, driving and walking home from a German business lesson, eating raw Spanish peanuts and oranges with news in German, my colorful lamp, painting stuff (some fine art talk, belongs to my life).

  • In a Shopping Mall - Wool? Leather? Down?

    Searching for and buying male pants in a local shopping mall in California, looking for options for vegan belts, shoes, and clothing. It took us 4 hours to find a model of cotton khakis that matches two people (they needed the same look).

    Down is harvested as a byproduct of the meat industry, geese and ducks are raised for slaughter. But there’s an economic temptation to live-pluck the birds. The plucking of live birds become rare nowadays,  and is against the law in the US and in several European countries. But live-plucking ducks and geese still practiced at factory farms in China, Poland and Hungary.

  • Vlog 1: Not a River (5K Walk)

    The first lifestyle vlog by Lena.

  • 13K Walk / Run - Construction

    The second lifestyle vlog by Lena, a European vegan fruitarian in California: avoiding construction, trying to vlog while exercising.

  • Vlog 3: Walls (12K Walk)

    Lena's vlog from California - not only pretty things: how regular people live, what fruit trees grow in Orange County, and schools.

  • Vlog 4: Hi! (Who am I?)

    This is how I look.

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.
