30 Bananas a Day!

Where is it the EASIEST place in the western world to eat healthy?

Id say its the big cities in the US. NYC, LA, Portland, Philadelphia etc.


Im sitting here now finishing the last of a 7$ for a 40lb of conventional Costa Rican bananas that taste better than 90% of the organic bananas we get in Australia. Conventional bananas in Australia are 7$ a lb in the big cities with organic bananas around 11$ a lb right now due to a shortage (there is no real shortage though, the industry has just made it up from what I hear from the insiders)


Here is a website that sells Vita Mix blenders at the CHEAPEST price in Australia.


Thats around 948$US.


I just ordered one for 400$US here in NYC lol!


Sure its easy to be a health and fitness person in Australia if you REALLY want it but in the USA its like playing baseball with basketballs. You just cant miss when you swing for it.

The cheapest Vitamix here in NZ 1180 US, 1400 NZ - I might have to get a friend to bring me one back from the States. I totally agree though, if you want it enough, you can do it anywhere! Enjoy the States!
The Mediterranean area (I can only truly speak specifically for the South of France here). TONS of fresh often organic produce available at small-scale farm gates everywhere! It's the best!
I've tried this lifestyle in so many different places now... 4 different states in the Southeast U.S. and 3 different towns in California.  By far the time I spent in the largest city, San Diego, CA was the easiest for me to eat.  Of course I was visiting and wasn't paying rent at the time.  But I still saw the best deals there, I've ever seen and I wasn't even aware of wholesale and hadn't really tried buying in bulk.  South Florida, from what I saw, as a visitor was okay, full of tropical produce, but expensive.  Inland desert CA, was the worst, and Sacramento, where I am now is pretty good, but it took a while to really know where to go, I'm still learning the best places to get things, but I'm doing really good now and this is the first time since San Diego, that I've felt really secure about my fruit supply.

Can't you grow banana's where you're at in OZ?

For sure man!  I live in a small town in Kansas and nanos here are still $0.64 a pound.  It's great!  So much abundance.

I'm so SHOCKED to hear about the high prices of organic fruit in Australia in recent posts.  I'm also cracking up:  I'm currently doing everything I can to shift my lifestyle to a situation in which I'm picking and eating my own tropical fruit for free, or paying second or third world prices for it, because I'm sick of spending so much money on fruit here in the US!


DR, I think I saw a video in which you were impressed with prices at Union Square Whole Foods in NYC... here in the states we joke by calling the store "Whole Paycheck" instead.  I only shop there as a last resort, I think the prices there are outrageous.


Here in Bay Area California, I get 3 organic Hawaiian papayas, 3 mangoes, or 5 lbs. of organic bananas for a dollar.  I just raid the discount produce rack, or Chinatown, where all the riper fruit is sold cheaper to get rid of it.

How was China in terms of produce, Harley? Id like to know cause Im moving there next month...
yes here in the US people have no idea what it's like to pay the real cost of things. Despite that there's seems to be a lot of people that complain about the prices of things...lol

Wow.. good to know.   I guess Americans likely spend a much smaller portion of their earnings on food...


It's all relative.   Look at the price of meat/milk/cheese.... amazingly low....  :((


No excuses I guess... from a monetary perspective....

Where did you order your Vita Mix?
