30 Bananas a Day!

Okay I saw a thread like this over at rawfoodtalk and thought it would be fun to bring over here. I'll start

You know you're raw when

your oven was broken for possibly weeks but didnt realize it until your mother came to your visit
you have a giant cutting board over your stove because you never use the burners
you don't have to worry about look good in the morning
you can say your "shit don't stink" and not be lying!
you can go straight from a workout to dinner and not worry about smelling bad
you don't have to read the newest fad health article about wine being good for your heart or the amazing antioxidants in the ookalakkombah berries of djibouti
you only go to one part of the supermarket and are out of there in minutes
your grocer thinks you own 3 monkeys, a cow and several other barnyard animals
you bite your tongue and just smile and nod during any health discussion with a SAD eater
you barely remember what it is like to scrub a dish and own 0 brillo pads.

let's see what you guys can come up with!

Lol I store my bananas in my closet. It helps keep the little flys out of my room.

But not! haha

Oh my gosh I just created a discussion asking about produce storage ideas! I love the closet idea--I want to make a large wooden open air shelving unit with pull out drawers n stuff...I would love suggestions!

I adore the little fruit flies. Ever look at one up close? They are sooo cute! I allow them to stay.

the little flies is called "Drosophila" and have been (ab)used to decode the human genome. 

I agree!!!! They have such cute features:)

* your grocer thinks you buy for a restaurant (happens to me lol!)

People ask me questions such as this: "What do you do with all these peaches?", and expect an answer such as 'I make jam out of those for long months in winter'. I smile and look them in the eye, and say "We eat them." Then they ask "All of these? How long does this last for?", and I answer "Oh, a couple of days."

* your grocer does not know fruit you are buying

I often find myself explaining to the checkout person and the curiosu people next to me in the queue how to eat a particular fruit.

* when you do the maths and find that you are 811

I never ever tried to follow 811 or any prescription based rules, my diet porgressed to high-fruit spontaneously after about a year or two of raw, cause I found that I absolutely adore fruit!
*your grocer does not know fruit you are buying
This happens all the time to me. it's always my luck the little sticker has fallen off and then they have to search for ten minutes to find the price. I've had them ring up persimmons as tomatoes before lol.
Yea, I get this one really bad too. People almost never know what kale is.

Me too!!!


The most shocking for me was when I was on vacation in the USA (Florida), I went to a wallmart, and basically bought all the organic produce I could find, and this woman at the cash register was looking at me like I was absolutely insane... she then had some trouble identifying - wait for this one.... -  a CUCUMBER!

hahaha now *I* was completely shocked.

She then said she "didn't have a proper homecooked meal since Thanksgiving" (it was Summer...)

I buy a 25 of discount bananas 49 cents a pound that are "overipe" to SAD and the cashier gives me tips how to make banana bread right.

Haha! This just happened to me a couple of days ago.
