Vegan Fruitarian and Frugan Shopping

Fruitarian shopping.

  • Growers Ranch, Orange County

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

  • Growers Direct, Orange County - Fruit Haul

    Fruitarian Shopping in a local market in Costa Mesa, California, " Growers Direct," a neat friendly store. I bought Persimmons and watermelons for a few days. 

  • Grocery Outlet

    After watching the last video by okraw about shopping in one of these store around my area (Orange County, California), I went to one location of Grocery Outlet myself, and checked for vegan fruitarian (frugan) options. 

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • Smart & Final and Stater Bros

    Buying fruits in SoCal's supermarkets in November: Smart and Final, Stater Bros. - fruit prices, fruitarian / frugan foods I often or sometimes buy (apples, oranges, pears, tomatoes, avocados, green peas, etc.)

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

Genetics

Genetics is the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in living organisms. A gene is the basic physical and functional unit of heredity. Genes, which are made up of DNA, act as instructions to make molecules called proteins. 

The Human Genome Project has estimated that humans have 20,000 - 25,000 genes. Every person has two copies of each gene, one inherited from each parent. Most genes are the same in all people, but less than 1% of genes are slightly different between people. Poplar tree genome suggests more than 45,000 genes.
