30 Bananas a Day!

Durianrider & Freelee share the truth. Fullyrawkristina, Rawfullyorganic, Doug Graham,

Lots of rumors. Lots of lies. We share the truth in this pdf.


Here is a snippet. Fullyraw Kristina claims to have never send legal threats towards anyone!

But the reality is different. Here is a letter Rawvana forwarded us. It was sent by Kristina's marketing department. Owned by Kristina's sister...

Subject: Brand Infringement
Ms. Mendoza,
Our public relations agency represents Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram and we are writing to you because your recent video, Rainbow Summer Watermelon Salsa is confusingly similar to the Watermelon Gazpacho recipe that was created by our Client on August 29, 2012. The recipe contains the majority of ingredients from her original recipe, making "your "recipe a copy of hers. You must cease immediately to use any recipes that are built or expanded on our client's intellectual property.
Plainly, your brand representation, look and feel is extremely referential to Kristina's branding, food styling and even fonts used in her videos. We are flattered that you may admire Kristina, the fame she has built to date and the global expansion of her brand. However, as publicists we strongly encourage you to find your own voice, branding and filming style so that your brand is not copying our Client. 
We request that you remove that video from your YouTube Channel immediately and consider any inappropriate competition or referential actions in the future. We will be watching you brand for any similarties that may cause consumer confusion. If you do not comply we will commence legal action pursuing all appropriate remedies.
If you have any questions, I encourage you to call me directly: 713-894-4040.

We apologize for their behavior and feel part responsible as we promoted them so heavily over the last few years and are as disappointed as you are.

Wow what a bummer..  :(

Please continue to share your story as loud as you can, Airin.  

Dissent may come; the bigger your message the more there'll be.

But if even one life is changed for the better, that'll make it all worthwhile.

On FB someone wrote

Then a 3 hours later Kristina wrote

Yet Fullyraw Kristina threatens people with legal action if they 'act like a copycat'.

Insert 'fullyraw giggles' here.

Oh wow, thanks for sharing all this Harley, I'm glad Kristina failed to threaten Rawvana as I absolutely love her channel, for those who haven't seen her yet look her up on youtube. I am glad that both you and Freelee have stayed true to yourselves and to the vegan cause, keep up the amazing work <3

Lolll, I would tell this person to get a real job!

My bottom line: Most people do things only if they see something in return for it.. I've also learned this in my life.. and guess what, the only thing most people care about is money.. 

Correct. That is why we are putting on a free festival this year in Thailand. No entry fee. Just turn up and learn up! :)

Learning how to eat healthy shouldnt be only for those with mega $ to spend on a retreat ticket.

couldnt help but laugh bc i pulled up kristinas new video about the kale pina coolatas and i noticed she is responding to SOOOOOO many of her viewers comments. like way more then usual lol shes prob trying to combat the haters.

I've been breathing air for a while now.

It's unsettling to see others copying my technique and style of absorbing oxygen.

They should all stop, now.

Oh, and culture is copying what peoples of the past did.

They should all quit it.

i just laughed so hard at your comment hahahah

The poor behavior of those individuals is disappointing. Truly. What shocks me about the whole "recipe-gate" with Kristina is that call it a chopped salsa or a blended gazpacho, it's still watermelon fruit salad. Fruit salad. Who owns the recipe for fruit salad? No one! Plus it is nearly impossible to "own" a recipe unless you made it through some kind of wicked chemistry experiment. It's just so arrogant and ridiculous.
