Welcome to another episode of the Love Fruit Podcast.
Jonas Sunshine Callewaert lives in Arizona and was raised for a short while on a raw vegan diet. His mother was a follower of Ann Wigmore and was influenced by a couple that running a raw food centre called Temple Beautiful.
Jonas was mostly vegetarian growing up then turned vegan at 20 on the advice of some Rastafarians. He later found out about raw food and the 801010 diet through a chance meeting at a pot luck.
Jonas has been a regular contributor on raw vegan forums for years and has at times been infamous for his volume of contributions and his criticism of those that deviate from what he perceives as the law of nature and natural hygiene.
In Arizona, Jonas forages for fruit and occasionally sells the fruit he finds, especially the dates.
