Since going raw, I find myself at the grocery store a lot. I'm still gauging how much I actually need each week. I might actually be paying too much since I'm not buying most of it in bulk. I'm just curious, for those that eat 2500+ calories a day, how often do you go to the grocery store or wherever you buy your fruits/veggies from? What are you getting and what are the quantities of what you're getting? How long does it last in your house?
I'm taking in anywhere from 3,500 to 4,000 calories per day currently. Trips are usually every 3 to 4 days. Bringing home as many of the discounted ripe bananas as possible. usually about 60, I also always pick up 3 or 4 bags(5lbs) of clementines and as much watermelon as I can fit in my cart. I get 6 heads of romaine hearts every trip as well. I'm usually getting in and out with less than $40. I buy dates in bulk so they make up for any other calories throughout the week.
This is good info, thanks. Is this organic? Also, does your store usually have the discounted ripe bananas out or do you have to ask for them?
Im doing the clementines and the romaine organic right now. The places around me in Ohio have very strange tasting organic bananas. I'm lucky to have a few giant eagle stores I can swing by to check for discounted ripe bananas, they always have some out.
Wow, 99 cents for strawberries. No, this is helpful. Thanks. It seems I really have to do some research in my area and talk to store managers to see what kind of deals I can work out.
its a full time job

that means several stores need to be checked for different produce
i cannot pass a store that promises something sweet
