30 Bananas a Day!


Midwest Raw

The few.

The (often) rural.

The Midwest vegans.


I've often felt alone in my fruity adventure out here in the very middle of the Midwest.  Thought it might be nice for us middle of the country peeps to network :)

If you're in the Boulder/Colorado area please come to the screening of Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret on the 30th of this month. This environmental documentary uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. If you've seen Blackfish you might be interested in this film as well. http://www.tugg.com/events/11187

Hey everybody - I just started a Facebook group for a Midwest fruitluck & 80/10/10 community! Will be coordinating fruitlucks, working together to get wholesale prices on fruit, & hopefully meeting new people nearby. Please join & tell your friends in the midwest! I'm also working to set up a fruitluck in Muncie, Indiana for Sept. if anybody is interested in attending please let me know :)

Thought I would just let anyone who is in the Kansas CIty area know that Trader Joe's has some super delicious plums right now. I have to go back to the store tomorrow because I literally ate all that I bought.

I'm always nervous when I buy plums because I've had to many that were so tasteless. These did not disappoint.

Hello from the center of Illinois. I'm currently heading home from Wisconsin, but stopping by Pacific Produce to hopefully score some durian. Wish me luck.

thanks for the update Eva!

For Minneapolis friends! I wanted to update my date recommendation and let you know that I did try out the Holy Land located at Midtown Global Market and the date selection was quite poor so if you're looking for the GOOD stuff, go to the main location in NE Minneapolis :)

Comment by Ryan Michael Harlow on July 11, 2014 at 5:51am

@ Vegan Spookling 
I have not ordered from them yet, I have been having issues getting paid from my employer the past few months and literally been without enough money to start my membership.

@ Eva Lovisa
Thanks for this information! I've been needing dates in my life agian

Comment by Vegan Spookling on July 10, 2014 at 8:14am

Thanks so much, Eva! I sadly have no dates right now and have been meaning to get some. I will definitely go to Holy Land!!

Ryan, have you gotten any produce from them?? I'm interested.

Comment by Eva Lovisa on July 10, 2014 at 8:04am

For my Minneapolis peeps! I'm still trying to figure out the wholesale situation too.

BUT, I can tell you where to find the most AMAZING dates!!!! 

I get my big boxes of dates from the Holy Land http://holylandbrand.com/ (I've only been to their main store, but I'm sure the other Midtown location is just as good). They have an absolutely incredible selection of all sorts of different date varieties — and the price is amazing. Better than ordering online! And the quality is SUPERB! :D

Other than that, I've have the best luck with Champagne mangos from Whole Foods, they tend to have very ripe ones and will often discount them :)

Welcome to Minneapolis! :D
