30 Bananas a Day!

So i was at the gorcery store the other day just getting about 20 pounds of bananas, and this little old lady comes up to me at the checkout line and is like "what are you going to do with all those bananas???" I said "uhhh well i will probably eat them" she looked at me really weird like I had just told her I was going to eat a playground or something, then she just walked off. 

I was wondering if you guys had any strange reactions while buying lots of fruit. I am still new to being raw so it's a new experience for me to have people react all weirded out at my shopping cart.

Yeh, after a while of buying 50 bananas every two days at the market, they started wondering too if I actually ate them (they prolly expected I was making marmelade or something). They're used to it now, heh.
 The other day, there was a woman telling the fruit lady about her diet and how strawberries made you fat and stuff. They were both really animated and excited about it, as if she was getting anywhere with her oil-free tuna-onion-salads. I had a real hard time not butting in and saying: Yeh, fruit totally makes ya fat, just look at me and all them bananas. 

My dad has diabetes and the doctor is always telling him not to eat fruit. I used to have blood sugar issues but ever since going raw i haven't had any issues. It's so funny that people start eating all this processed food and then they get sick and they say 'oh it must be the fruit!' 

LOL that's funny one!! 

I would go to the same supermarket and go 'banana shopping' and I always made new friends wondering what on earth I was gonna do with all those bananas!!! got asked quiet alot of times if I have a monkey or gorilla at home (-: amazing how bags full of bananas get so many weird looks and a trolley full of flesh, secretions and junk food is considered quiet 'normal'!!!! they dont know what they are missing!!!

I know!! It is so sad that buying a lot of whole ripe fresh Yummy fruit is so weird but buying a lot of crazy chemicals and dead animals is so normal! 

u should try to find a wholesale location to buy ur bananas. if your buying 20lbs at a time the wholesale case is 40lb might as well get those.  plus they wont look at u funny when you buy it there. haha

thanks for the advice Do you know how to find a wholesale location? I live in Alabama so I'm not to sure where to look.

i also buy at whosale- cheaper, more choise in everything and no strange looks.

Going to the supermarket i feel embarresed with only fruit and toiletpaper.

Yeah. Right now I'm only able to get out and grocery shop once a week. So, buying 140 bananas at the grocery store definitely got lots of questions. One time, this lady stood there and watched me as I piled them all into my cart.. then she's like, "I HAVE to ask... do you actually use all of those before they go bad?" But she was nice and actually seemed interested in what I told her about LFRV.

But I just got a membership card to a bulk restaurant supplier (thanks to my parents owning a little convenience store) so I'll be going there now. Yay! :)

ur so lucky!

Nice post. I had a good laugh.
