Everything I Ate This Week//3

So we had to record everything we ate in a week, among some other things, in Human Bio. I actually kind of enjoyed the assignment (though I hate the idea of reducing the foods that I eat to things like calories... That are so commonly regarded as 'evil' by the general public..).

So anyhow, since it didn't take any extra effort on my part, and I s'pose perhaps it might be of interest to somebody... I thought I'd share my paper.

A) Are you athletic?

B) Everything that you ate this week:
(previous to this, I didn't realize just how much a person eats in a week! ..or maybe it's just me.. Hmm. Haha)
  • 15 avocados
  • 7 or 8 tomatoes
  • 4ish cups of dried mango
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 1/2 head kale
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 jar green olives
  • 1/2 c chilli powder
  • 7 bananas
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 apple
  • 11 dates
  • 1 1/4 c grapes
  • 1 1/4 bag sundried tomatoes
  • 2 can olives
  • 1 spaghetti squash
  • 1 glass OJ
C) How many calories do you burn in a week?
About 1,460 calories in a day; 10,220 calories in a week.

D) How many calories did you consume this week?
9,870.75 (this was odd, because I felt like I must have eaten a lot more than this... And my friend who is raw vegan did an assignment like this a while ago... And she found that she actually eats more than the recommended amount of calories for people of her age, height, and weight.. I dunno. Haha. I also really don't care that much - just eat frsh fruit, that you're hungry for, when you're hungry..and you'll be just fine.
But basically... I was only 400 off the recommended, without trying hard at all - which means that my body must be pretty in tune with what it needs.)

E) What kinds of food should you be eating?
The ideal diet for humans is fruit. 100% delicious, fresh fruit.

Pre-fruitarian photos:

Beginning of freshman year; About a year and a half ago; I was vegan.

Last summer; 8 months ago maybe?; High-fat (gourmet) raw vegan.

So... sadly enough, I can't give you an awesome, encouraging before and after story, because I've always been in the healthy weight range, more or less.
However, I know that lots of people are always looking for photos of fruitarians, to see their weight, whether they look healthy.. and all that I guess. So, I thought I'd post some photos of me on a fruitarian diet... Just for reference.

These last ones were all taken within a week-ish of one another.

Height: 5'2
Weight: 102
BMI: About 18.7 (healthy)
Age: 15
Fruitarian for about half a year.

The Secret Life Of Plants

Just got done watching this documentary. Fascinating. Suggests so many truths, that so many of us have never even considered..
Plants capable of reacting to people's emotions? Communicating with one another? Thinking?
Even if you don't think you'll buy into any of it - I deffinately reccomend watching.

Haven't felt this much
Since last time I saw you.

You're here,
With me.

I pull you in for a hug.
Your mouth moves
As if to kiss my longing lips.

The air is charged with emotion
As we both remember
And hastily return to our hug
With even tighter grip.

Again your lips move toward mine
I close my eyes
You can tell how badly I want,
But I press my face into your neck.

Look up to kiss your cheek
Lips meet.

Right and wrong disappear.
Tomorrow and yesterday no longer matter.
In a shining, explosive moment,
The universe aligns

I am right where I should be
My lips melt into yours;
We are one,

This moment is all there is,
You and I are everything.
And it's all I need
And I need it forever.

On My Mind//7

I'm shaking.
Hold me.
Just let me put my arms around you.
Be close to me.
Let me feel you here.
That's all I need.
