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...

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.

Hi guys, I'm new to the Drama. I actually only just learned about all of this a few days ago as I was catching up on Raw Food Videos and learning about the WFF. I had plans of attending but after learning about all of this and then seeing the video that Mike's wife posted, eek! She sounded so rotten. I don't want to give that much money to people with that kind of attitude. Not to mention give my husbands hard earned money to someone with a criminal background.  I just didn't have a good feeling about it after seeing all of this. I was left with a sour taste in my mouth after seeing videos from just regular people who had attended the WFF and said they were blown off by Kristina and how you had to donate to Pioneers. Why do I have to donate to anyone after paying $1,300 JUST for myself? 

I saw a comment last night on Kristina's page when I went to unlike it. She has since taken it down but they made a good point about how can you accuse someone of using similar ingredients in the raw food community? That there are only a few ways you can make a raw pie crust or a raw lasagna. So true! Of course the ingredients are going to be similar! 

I had really wanted to start my own Raw Food youtube channel because I think we have a really great story involving our kids with autism. But after all of this it made me nervous, what if one of the "pioneers" are trolling youtube and accuse me of using "similar ingredients"? Kristina said in her emails that she wants to be the face of the Raw Food world in the US, well then, does she have plans to push the rest of the raw food youtubers out if they get popular? It's so ridiculous and sad. She has created a PR nightmare for herself and doesn't even realize it. 

Don't let anyone scare you away from telling your awesome story that could help a lot of other families in a similar situation. 30bads got your back from the hucksters:)

You've got a story to share, Fern, you share it, though the heavens fall!

If even one person is helped because of it, that will be more than worth every effort.  

A Fern, do your channel. If any other pretentious raw fooders try and give you legal action like Kristina did to 1 youtuber and then sent legal threats to another youtuber, just PM me and I will tell you how to overcome it. 

Ive a good feeling K won't by taking legal action against any raw food channels anytime soon though. I think she has learned her lesson about building community vs trying to legally shut them down if they use a pumpkin a similar color to one she used in a video.

"Hey your bananas have spots on them! MINE DO TOO! YOU COPY CAT! Wait till my marketing agency hears about this!!"

please share your story! my brother has severe autism and i would love for him to be plant based!

"I just put it down to Doug having cucumbers for dinner again..."

I'm still laughing at this 4 days later. :-)

Great bit of humor to lighten up the bloodbath from the backstabbing Harley and Freelee have sustained.

Keep on Thriving and helping people, animals, and the planet.

Your understanding of transition to HCLF (a.k.a. mostly raw, etc.) and your commitment to veganism and honesty are much appreciated.

What always bugged me about Kristina's videos is her refusal to talk about cost - even in Texas where prices are relatively low her grocery bill must be enormous! I prefer to watch youtube channels from people who are in a similar situation to me, with financial constraints, having to work this lifestyle around a job etc. There are plenty of people who aren't 'pioneers' who have much more useful stuff to say than Kristina, Dan etc.

more untruth and lack of standing up  to disinfo

look at the almanac(or a weather underground graph) it does freeze a few days of the year

Not seeing the untruth, Sun.

She didn't say never freezes but "usually" doesn't.

It doesn't "usually" freeze in our two cities either, but it can happen once in a while.  

Let's stay on target.

Im surprised fully raw kristina doesnt talk about her brand new white porsche. Id sticker that bad boy up and drive it around town. I wouldnt have ordered leather seats for it though.
