  • Huge Papaya

    I found a very big papaya in a local growers store, around 13 inches long. And it was good too.

  • Complex Fruitarian Salad with Spices and Herbs

    Fruitarian Salad - a somewhat complex non-sweet fruit salad recipe, with my usual spices and herbs, and with some additional ingredients this time like chives, oregano, sage, thyme, marjoram, basil, rosemary, etc. - raw vegan, for Winter and cold - a 30-minute improvised video:

    Hope you liked some of my ideas and got your own!

  • Matt - jAe Costly

    Matt - jAe Costly

    This is an interview with Matt - we talked after this interview online live, see the video below (~ 2.5 hours). Matt kindly agreed to answer my questions when I invited him after watching this video (Dear Vegans, Plants DO Feel Pain BUT...) on his channel: 

    I Introduction
    1. Please, introduce yourself.

    Greetings! My name is Matthew. On the internet, I go by either jAe Costly or jack's Afer effort. 

    2. How would you describe this stage of your life?

    Veganism. 

    3. Tell us something about your background.

    I grew up in the United States. I have been vegan for over a year. I used to work at a Zoo but I have been studying science education for the past few years.

    Two-hour exercise outside on Saturday in SoCal (California).

  • Is High Fruit Raw Vegan Diet the Key to Vitality and Health?

    I was asked this question by a very nice person. The first version of the question was (with a few additional details):

    ...do you think high fruit raw vegan diet is optimal for health?...I honestly sense i am not going the right way, as I am not "glowing" on this lifestyle. Would love your perspective.

    The final version of the question was:

    ...is this diet key to vitality and health, aside of course relationships, state of mind and etc.

    In this semi-spontaneous response I did not touch on a few important aspects of the issue because the subject was a bit too broad and complex to give an comprehensive and definitive short answer. I also did not know almost anything about this person experience with this diet. The video is ~ 30 minutes long:

  • 10K Walk / Run - Nature, Teens, Grand Battement, Vlogging, Personal Marketing, Lake

    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.

  • Lucky Sun Hours

    Unexpectedly, the Sun went out, and I was happy all the way to the pool, in it, and back.

    7K Walking (total), 1.5K swimming.

    This is me, Lena, in the bright Californian sunlight after a swim.

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies, for the hardest victory is over self.

Choline Recommended Intake from Seeds and Fruits

Choline is an essential vitamin-like (vitamin B4) nutrient, synthesized in human body, but not sufficiently.

The recommended adequate intake (AI) of choline is set at 425 milligrams (mg)/day for women and 550 mg/day for men.

Choline deficiency causes muscle damage and abnormal deposition of fat in the liver, which results in a condition called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Genetic predispositions and gender can influence individual variation in choline requirements.
