30 Bananas a Day!

Hi everyone,

I apologise if I sound whiny when I post this. But this topic has been bothering me for quite some time, despite PKs great post emphasising the importance of greens, which I truly and wholeheartedly agree with and support. BUT the problem is, the only greens that I've been able to eat are celery, fennel, and lamb's lettuce. I did eat spinach as well for a while, but (I'm not sure if I'm remembering right or not) I read that people with autism shouldn't eat it, so I stopped. Though do correct me if I'm wrong about that with spinach and autism.
 I CANNOT (I repeat) CANNOT afford organic nor am I able to grow my own at the moment, given where I currently live. Just as well, the celery, fennel, and lamb's lettuce that I buy end up not tasting as good as usual (in quality). But, like I said, I can't afford organic and I do the best I can.

I'm not here to whine or make excuses, I'm here to state the fact of the matter regarding my situation. I'm a mono-eater (otherwise my digestion is terrible) and I'd be opened to hearing solutions. I have thought of eating greens as snacks in between, but I've more or less stopped snacking, as my meals are larger and that appears to be encouraged in this lifestyle. I have considered trying broccoli raw as my dinner, as I loved it (as all other vegetables) cooked, but since it's a starchy veggie and (according to the raw school link) usually not encouraged/meant to be eaten. Therefore I'm hesitant with the idea.

Please feel free to share tips, advice, personal experiences, etc. I appreciate every feedback. :)

Have you tried blending greens in smoothies?

No, but I would be eager to try it with one of the greens, if possible. Have you ever had any mono-green-smoothie?

i love greens+bananas.  or bananas+dates+greens.  :)

Seconding this one :-)

I love datorate with mixed in spinach.

I cannot afford to buy organic with the quantity of greens and fruits I need either. So, I go dumpster diving at organic stores :-) They throw away what they cannot sale jut like your average food store. In that I have found a cost free resource that enables me to consume a lot of organic stuff.

Awesome!! Good idea!!

When you are able to still find good quality through that, I'm happy for you. :) But dumpster diving is not for me.

Thanks Peter. :) I'll see what I can do. I'll check the prices.

However, before I went mono, I had a really hard time with combos (in terms of digestion), which is why I eat - and would prefer - to stay mono.

Are you able to garden at all?  There is nothing like fresh young greens from  your own organic garden.  It's like a different food from what we buy in the grocery store.  

In the colder months (starting now for me) with the garden greens gone, I get my greens in by eating lots celery (sometimes half a bunch a day, when I can afford it), 1-2 smoothies or day with greens, (i.e. 7 Bananas, half-cup blueberries, 2 cups greens , 1-2 cups water), and a head of Romaine daily again if I can afford it.

At the moment I'm not able to rent a garden because I earn too little to do that. Though I plan to do that after I graduate from my apprenticeship and have a real job. I'm also convinced that greens from your own garden are the best. :)

Culd you maybe grow some greens inside? That's what I'm doing this winter...they're coming up already, I'm so exiiited! (:

How are you growing them?
