Sorry, it was NathanB who asked x
cafeaulait, I get them from TG fruits in Brighton. I've just got green coconuts there today for 17.50 for 9, still pricey but a nice treat now and then :-) I go there for my tropical stuff, the everday stuff I buy in bulk from Tonbridge Market. I asked the stall owner one day if she'd sell me stuff by the case for wholesale prices and she said yes.
@Sunluvva - Can I ask which wholesaler you've found for dates? That price the cheapest I seen yet for medjools.
@Raw P, how can you buy local tropical fruits ? I live in the northern hemisphere, the only local fruits are summer berries, apples and plums a few months a year. yeah I agee Tom, I too have bought fruit which says on the packet that it's sweet only to spit it out, it's awful. The best fruit I've had here a few times in the last 6 months has been 6 out of 10, pretty mediocre. It can't be nutritious if it isn't ripe.
I get bananas for between £7 - £9 for an 18 kilo box, medijools for £26 for 5 kilo, oranges £10 for 50-70 depending on size etc. I rarely buy anything from the supermarket any more.
Doug tends to live between the USA and Sussex but he's always jetting off to exotic places.If you haven't seen it already there are some 30 day challenges going on on facebook organised by Freelee. You'll get all the advice to stick to raw there. It's been divided into girls and boys as we girls tend to talk about stuff the boys don't want to hear ;-)
Since joining in I've been mostly all raw with the occasional slip up, found different suppliers to get produce at wholesale prices and feel better than I have in years :-)
I guess it is buy in bulk and buy local, which is exactly what every 811er says time and time again. I am not preaching as I am not 100%. However, I know when I am very high raw the majority is from dates or bananas. At the supermarket there's usually produce which goes onto cut price or offer, it isn't easy but it certainly isn't impossible. And doesn't Doug live near the tropics? Which makes it completely different for him.
Can't agree more about the standard of fruit but always curious how Doug Graham manages? I'd love more practical advice on how to maintain this diet.
@cafeaulait I have to agree. There are nice local berries but they're seasonal and you'd have to spend ridiculous money to get enough cals for a meal. The imported stuff is unreliable at best. I went off dates about a month ago coz they were giving me tummy ache. Now it's pretty much bananas for calories and and the odd bit of other fruit for variety. Today I bought a Vietnamese pomeroy from a Turkish shop. I had one bite and threw it in the bin. Also bought some non-dried dates to try. They're OK but not sweet at all. The figs are edible, but not organic so I don't really want to be eating loads of them all the time (with the peel on). Without the dates I'm struggling. It's annoying because I feel great eating fruit.
Mmmm the tropics are calling me ...
