All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

Vlog

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

Another walk and run along a destructed river and by a lake in Southern California: walking, jumping, running, accelerating, elements of ballet training, stretching, grand battement ([batmɑ̃], a movement in which both legs are kept straight and one leg is kicked outward from the body and in again). A few thoughts on freedom of mind, personal marketing on youtube, critique on building communities of loyal followers as a marketing strategy, "begging" for money and attention, cost of making videos.

Some thoughts during my morning walk / run: social networks and click-popularity, paying for reaching subscribers on facebook, escaping reality, fruits are not ideal food (there is no ideal food), plants matter regardless whether we can relate to them, alcohol and fast food, limited resources, we need to find ways to live together on this planet.

Another run; trees; talking about how eating juicy fruit only or adding seeds make me feel on the next days; confirmational bias, health related activities of a day: asanas and a few other exercises in the morning, then shower, and eating in the evening in two-three loads, consuming 1500 food calories; short fastings; energy for brain.

The second vlog where I point the lens at myself. Just talking. "I eat them" :)

Another local store, Growers Ranch. Checking out my options for fruits and seeds.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

They are called into existence by human artifice that they may drag out a short and miserable existence of slavery and disease, that their bodies may be mutilated, their social feelings outraged. It were much better that a sentient being should never have existed, than that it should have existed only to endure unmitigated misery.

Genetically Modified Organisms, GMO

genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques (i.e., a genetically engineered organism). GMOs are used to produce medications and genetically modified foods, and are widely used in scientific research and the production of other goods. 

A more specifically defined type of GMO is a "transgenic organism." This is an organism whose genetic makeup has been altered by the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism. Typically GMOs are organisms whose genetic makeup has been altered without the addition of genetic material from an unrelated organism.
