Folks, I can't tell you how happy I am to find a resource such as 30 BAD, I'm absolutely buzzing, I've been a lone fruit ranger for way too long!!
I live in the UK and would love to talk to, meet and just plain communicate with fellow fruit lovers in my area/country....and anyone else from anywhere on this beautiful (so beautiful) planet. Please add me as I think it will take quite some time to sift through add each of you one at a time!!!
Really up for connecting - Matthew UK Lancashire (and the world!!)
P.S. I'm munching my way through 5kgs of cherries here...yummmmyyyy!!!
I feel the same way: lone fruit muncher here in Indiana. This site is incredible, and I'm definitely looking to connect with other young like-minded pioneers in this unnatural world! Welcome to the best resource for the fruit-obsessed.
Enjoy your cherries!
Well it looks like we've found the right place! Thanks for making contact, I've been doing this alone for a while now and all the time I was thinking there aren't many others thinking the way I do but this website has opened my eyes!
I bet Indiana is lovely! What is the fresh produce like over there? I'm very intrigued by the standard of produce people from other parts of the world have available to them, I'm always looking to see what the world can offer. It's a bit hit and miss in Lancashire UK, sometimes good, sometimes a little bland.
Still going on the cherries here, grazing on!!
Indiana is very pretty right now. Lush, green, hot, and humid! The produce right now is good and will only get better through the summer. There is a weekly farmers' market that I go to, and I've connected with a couple farmers who have fantastic lettuces, kale, spinach, zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes! Great for massive dinner salads! As far as fruit is concerned, the selection is slim at the moment. I go to a local grocer who is able to order bulk organic bananas, dates, and oranges for me, which are staples. No vegan or all-organic grocers in my area unfortunately. I hit up Walmart for champagne mangoes, pineapple, and berries. Very few organics there, unfortunately.
I am in grad school at the moment, and I'll be here for the next few years, but after I finish up, I will definitely be moving someplace more tropical/conducive to this lifestyle!
How is Lancashire?
Welcome fellow newcomer :D Awesome fruit guy.
Howdy from Texas! Just wanted to say welcome, Matthew, and I love fruit dude!
Cherries sound amazing, they just got into season here. Today is a banana island day for me, but I will definitely go pick up some cherries tomorrow. Now that you've got me craving them, lol!
Hey from Maryland! I'm the only one of my friends who I know who eats the way I do so I totally feel you! England must be so cool! I'm currently watching a tv show on netflix that is based in England! Anyway, welcome to 30-BaD!! (:
Hi Matthew! ;D I'm Anna. I'm also new ;)
Hi how you doing :D I live in lancashire too! may meet you soon if you go to one of those manchester meet-ups!!
Hi Matthew welcome :)
Hi Matthew! It's really cool that you've started topic cause i feel quite simillar. I live in Wolverhampton(it may change after the summer). The idea of meetings and creating community is great, especially that i don't find people in my area enthusiastic about LFHC and when you're studying and most of your friends are heavy-weekend drinkers... Anyway I was checking some events and i know that there is a fruit festival in UK(i can't afford it). I know that in birmigham are some vegan meetings->check on facebook something like Lancashire vegan, i'm pretty sure you'll find something;)
