All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food, unless we spread their seed in their habitat. Latest edition: Fruit plants never get paid for producing our food – the flesh of the fruits, unless we spread seeds of the fruits we have eaten into their species' habitat.

Welcome, Toni!
I guess, plants do not consciously participate in our economies :) I think we should pay them back for the fruit with care and protection.

Well, Lena, the necessary and sufficient care and protection for the plants, from us – the fruit eaters, is to give the chance for their seeds, which have been taken away within the fruits we eat, to reproduce their respective species, wherever, whenever and however those/they may grow on their own.

Well, that's one way to look at it.
I see plants as individual beens, not like a mechanical element of their species. As with animals, I will treat individuals with respect and try to do my reasonable best to help them flourish. I do not see it as my responsibility or ability, however, to ensure their plentiful procreation. I have an article about it on this site.

I don't feel like having implied a “mechanical element” concept. I guess you mention it to your liking, Lena.

Fruit plants produce our food naturally without our intervention. They don't ask for help. What they do but, without asking us, is putting their seeds in the fruits. This apparently shows what they rely upon for procreation; which is what we naturally can help them with, easily.

I say “give the chance ... to reproduce ... on their own”, not “ensure ... plentiful ...”, once again, Lena.

Guessing the article is “Seeds in Fruitarian Diet?”.

The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.

Lifestyle

Lifestyle - interests, opinions, and behavioural orientations of an individual, group, or culture. 

Personal lifestyle typically reflects individual attitudes, way of life, values, world view, and personal identity. Not all aspects of a lifestyle are voluntary. Surrounding social and technical systems can constrain the lifestyle choices available to the individual. Location is important factor of lifestyle. The nature of the neighborhood in which a person resides affects the set of lifestyles available to that person due to differences in degrees of affluence and proximity to natural and cultural environments. 

Lifestyle may include views on politics, religion, health, and intimacy.

For example, "green lifestyle" means holding beliefs and engaging in activities that consume fewer resources and produce less harmful waste, and deriving a sense of self from holding these beliefs and engaging in these activities.
