All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Vlog

Lifestyle vlogs - videos and short films - by Lena, a vegan fruitarian European in California

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. 

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.

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).

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

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

Carl Sagan

A sharp distinction between humans and “animals” is essential if we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear them, eat them–without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who often behave so unfeeling toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer. The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious. They are just too much like us.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants - substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Examples of antioxidants include beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene, selenium, vitamins A, C and E.

Vegetables and fruits are rich sources of antioxidants. There is good evidence that eating a diet with lots of vegetables and fruits is healthy and lowers risks of certain diseases. But it isn't clear whether this is because of the antioxidants, something else in the foods, or other factors. Most clinical studies of antioxidant supplements have not found them to provide substantial health benefits.
