So I am new to being a Raw/vegan. I am even newer to the 80-10-10. I am not by any means near to being the level I dream to be. Transitioning from a SAD diet to eating as much Raw food daily as possible can be very hard.It makes it even harder that I come from an area that is uneducated about Raw/Veganism. I come from a town with 1 health food store that is good but not really that great, and only very few places to buy Organically. At this time in my life (and I am sure I am not the only one) it is hard to afford to buy the few/pricey organic produce at our local wal-mart and hannaford (they actually have more produce then our health food store.) I am always one to say that "if you want to be healthy spend the extra money for the foods your body needs." However when me and my boyfriend are trying to pay bills, get a car, and save to move out of state our money for food can be limited which thus causes the amount of produce we purchase to be limited. We are both trying the 80-10-10 the best we can but if he needs 3,000 calories and I need 2,500 calories a day how do we go about that? We can't, and that's why we buy less thus making us not eat enough, which in turn makes us fall of the band wagon we are so wanting to be a part of.Anyone out there who has been in the same boat and figured a way out?
Peace and Love
