Np glad you like it. Awesome you checked out the jackfruit, I have to grab some next time! Few things I would stay away from is the soursop (twice now I got a crappy one, one with bugs in it eww!! but maybe I just suck at picking them idk? :/ ) as well as the watermelon (it's tempting cause it's only $4.99 i think for a big one). Speaking of which, do you know where I can get some GOOD watermelon right now? I keep buying all these crappy ones but it's one of my fave fruits :(
Are you sure the Ataulfos are cheaper? Your other case might have 16...These are missing 2 mangoes so it's only 14 not 16 which I thought at first. I know, sneaky right? :D
Hmm, that durian deal sounds like heaven. Must try. I honestly can't remember which store had the fresh ones but when I go do my shopping (prolly tomorrow) I'll stop at the other ones and see if I can find them again. There's one at central parkway and burnhamthorpe and another one on central parkway and mavis and also another one somewhere in the area lol
I'm just getting started actually! I tried it once before after doing high fat raw but I never really did it properly! So I'm gonna see how my body likes it. Perhaps do a lot of smoothies as I transistion in. Any tips?
Sure thing, we should go on a shopping mission sometime :)
Whereabouts are you? I'm just near QEW / Winston
Thanks for the recommend. Not sure why I've never seen this place before as I've been to all the other Asian markets around the area. Guess there's nothing in Oakville eh? They stacked them all in 'sauga!
Will definitely check it out if not today sometime this week as I need to re-stock. I've actually been going all the way to Oceans which isn't bad but it's a bit more of a drive: http://oceansfood.ca/store.html
They also have ataulfo's for about the same price. They have fresh jackfruit but I haven't got around to trying it yet.
Ty for the heads up on the mangoes as well. Is that for the organic ones?
Yeah I don't get everything organic either, it depends on the fruit. Like bananas and mangoes I don't really care but stuff like apples/blueberries/greens I prefer organic if I can find a good price.
Hahaha sounds like you have it all figured out. Find blue man, point to banana! Have you tried the frozen durian? How is it? I actually saw fresh ones at another one of those Asian stores..can't remember which one but it was either the one on central parkway/burnhamthorpe or central parkway & mavis. I was afraid to buy it though because I wasn't sure how to pick up a good one so maybe next time.
I see you're from Oakville. I'm actually near the border but on the Mississauga side :)
Curious if you have found any interesting places for fruit? I shop at Organic Garage sometimes but have been wondering if there's any lil Asian shops or anything. The closest ones to me are like near Square one and that's a bit of a drive.
At the moment I can manage it very well, but I am afraid of a backslide. Two years ago I also tried to life only on raw vegan foods, but with much more fat in my diet (nuts and avo). At this time I sometimes felt uncomfortable - gravings came up and I had some occasional relapses. A few month later I stopped eating raw, cause it doesn't worked for me (at this way). Now I feel much more better, no severe detox symptoms and a good energy level. Maybe (after trying so many different diets) I finally find the perfect nutrition for me (I hope so).
hey just looking for more support on 30BAD =). my journey is going okay. I have been raw for the last 4 days but had a cooked vegan meal today. It surprised me that I really didn't like it as much as I normally did. Happy to be raw again. I really want to adapt fully to this lifestyle
Thanks Kimberly. Love the Buddha quotes on your page, some of my favorites in there. Also love the profile pic. That's some wicked sweet hair.
My journey? Well, it's progress, certainly not perfection. I bought Doug Graham's book last may. It was the last piece in a several year process for me of trying to determine the optimum human diet. I process that started after some observation and reflection following my first time being outside of this country, a month's visit traveling across Russia. So anyway, I've been trying to be lfrv since May. About 75% of my diet is raw fruit and salad. I still eat some cooked food. I'm still hooked on salty fatty foods. Chips, popcorn, fries. It's one thing to know the path, it's quite another to walk it. I guess my excuse is that my fruit is mostly bananas and oranges, and I just can't get myself to eat enough calories of that and salad. Apples are plentiful here, but tropical fruit is not. and I don't like apples. I know, I leave in the wrong place. I don't get enough sun either. I'd love to move to Hawaii or something. I see people here talking about persimmons, and durians and such. I'm jealous. I love persimmons, but we get them for a very short period, and they're $3 each. we have mangoes and pineapple, but they're $5 to $6 each. I can get bananas by the box for $0.75 per pound, so that's what I mostly eat. and I get bored of that. anyways, enough rambling from me.
Are you the only vegan (or non-vegan) in your family? Are you in a relationship with someone of differing dietary inclinations? How do you navigate this challenging and complex landscape? In this video, I sat down with author, speaker, and joyful…
