One of the problems many of us face when we learn about proper nutrition and decide to fully commit to eating right is the cost of large amounts of quality fruit (greens are fairly cheap for most). For a lot of us, this might mean making some adjustments. So I'm curious to know...what do my fellow fruit munchers do for a living?!
I work as an IT architect and a Project Leader and I'm also a Kundalini Yoga teacher. Western science meets eastern science =D
I am trained as a high school English teacher, but I don't do that any more. I am a mom to 4 kids, and I have done a variety of stuff since I quit teaching, including home daycare, farmer's market manager, and working for a farmer who grows veggies for local markets. Now, I work part-time at a non-profit housing agency. My title is "homebuyer advisor" but I really do a wide variety of stuff.
We are currently looking for a VISTA volunteer for our organization, if anyone is interested. You could hang out with me all summer! ;0)
I just got out of grad school for art education. I sub teach at the moment which I love all-around, and I dig the flexibility of it if I need a day to recharge my batteries.
But YA! Mango Tango Fruit-Bat Man !!! An all-fruit diet with some variety to it costs about 1 cent per calorie - which means 30$ a day for fruit ! - on the diet prescribed in this forum.
I do the best that I can ! ( I am always on the lookout for cheap mangoes and oranges and such as I don't really like bananas all that much ). I must admit though that cost of this diet is a big reason why about 1000 calories worth of rice or potatoes helps me roll with the whole concept more generally. I feel pretty good too - with the help of some herbal adjuncts ( the anti-herbal people that are into this trip are really starting to seem funny to me, as good fruit and good herbs are like close divine relatives in my book ).
Also - I've become something of a sabbat following witch as far as watching the seasons change ! I can't wait till August 1st here in the Northern Hemisphere. The big-time Summer fruit harvest will start and last until about Halloween. During that time it'll be easy and inexpensive to hit the raw produce hard.
I am a university student studying economics and management with a concentration in entrepreneurship.
This summer I am interning with Teach For America, which is a non-profit whose mission is to ensure that kids who grow up i poverty receive an excellent education
During the school year I worked in a charter school in a "bad" neigborhood and helped organized college field trips and placed university students as tuturs in understaffed classrooms.
I love school and my job!

I am a college student studying music education at The College of New Jersey. I will be in the Princeton Festival's opera in June, and go back to school in the fall.
I work in IT in Southern California (Irvine)
Technically my title is Sr. J2EE Systems Engineer (Computer Geek), what I do is…
I work with Java Application Servers i.e.: JBoss, Weblogic, and Websphere (Big Web servers written in Java that serve up custom Java code) running on Unix and Windows Environments.
As jobs go it's kind of cool, I get to work with high end computer environments (if you're into stuff like that) and I get to consult with big Fortune 500 Companies. Sometimes it can be a little too Corporate for me, but most times it's casual.
Being 80/10/10 is easy with my job, I go to the gym at lunch then pick up a Kale salad at a vegan restaurant and eat at my desk . I also bring in a bunch of fruit to snack on, but nobody cares or pays much attention to what I do.
I'm a Materials Science Engineer working in a University in Sweden as a Research Engineer where I teach students, faculty, and industrial employees how to utilize Scanning Electron Microscopes, Atomic Force Microscopes and Optical Microscopes. It's REALLY COOOOL. I feel really fortunate to be doing something I love.
Don't really have what I would consider an income yet. I am going to college to study music all the while creating streams of passive income during these next 4 years. Selling a lot of stuff on eBay now too that I don't use. So student/entrepreneur/eBayer :P
i love the concept of PASSIVE INCOME :)
