Some people think that living on fruit is too expensive. Not true! I am sure that I am spending way less money on food and associated items than I used to. No money for bottled water, supplements, Starbucks, restaurants, spices, pots and pans, silly kitchen gadgets and appliances, medications, doctor visits, etc. The other day a woman in front of me had a basket of supplements that cost over $300. Little plastic capsules inside little plastic bottles. And I had lots of REAL FOOD for <$25. I could hardly carry it all! Some people spend thousands a month on medications. I know people who think nothing of spending $100. to eat out one meal, and man, that is some expensive poison! And how many thousands for an emergency gall bladder surgery? It's crazy how much peeps are spending on their unhealthy lifestyle. And all for the ultimate result of feeling TERRIBLE.
This bag of so-called overripe bananas was super cheap . . . I got 9 bananas for $1.25. Actually, they were perfectly ripe and I ate 3 of them right away outside the store. Bananas are not my favorite fruit, but there are times when they really hit the spot with their sweet creaminess! For me, 9 bananas is more than one meal and probably about 2-3 snacks. Some people say that bananas are the rice and potatoes of a fruit diet and I can agree with that. Except that bananas taste a LOT better and don't require cooking or condiments to be tolerated. They're perfect just as they are.
I love what it says on the handle: The Original Fast Food. That's the truth! : )
And in the summer, I can find gigantic watermelons for $3 or $4 at the Farmer's Market. A 30-lb. watermelon is a lot of food, folks! Angel food.
And lately, I have found large cantaloupes at 2 for $5.
Of course, when it comes to talking about how much fruit costs, I cannot help but ponder how all other creatures in Nature eat for free. I dream of a paradise world where all beings are vegan, and all food is abundant in Nature, freely given, plenty for all to share. ♥
