Raw Day 8: Let’s Go Shopping! For Groceries…

Breakfast: 1.5 c pineapple

Mid Morning: Tea; less than an 1/8 c. of dried zucchini

Lunch: Smoothie – 1 banana, 1 avocado, ½ c. spinach, 5 strawberries, ½ c. mango, ½ c. pineapple, some water

Dinner: Wrap – 1 cucumber, 1 carrot, ¾ avocado, 4 tbsp alfalfa sprouts, 3 tsp humus dip (from last week); ¾ Chinese okra

Jumping right into the meat of the post… there seemed to be more avocado in my smoothie this time around which I wasn’t particularly a big fan of. It didn’t taste bad, I just prefer more subtle hints of the vegetables in my smoothies. I’m a fruity kinda person.

Not too much seems to be going on otherwise. Energy level seem to be relatively the same as before. I do feel that I”m scrutinizing every little thing and so some things may be normal, I just didn’t notice them before while other things may be missed due to being too focused on the details.

Moving on, buying groceries is really bad ass. I have to buy a lot to get through the week and when I plop it all down on the conveyor belt at the store I feel like a rock star. Yup. I did just compare raw food shopping to rockstarism. It feels that good.

What doesn’t feel so great is the indent on my bank account. I live up north so food prices are a bit higher, but the big difference is that I was a bargain shopper before and now it doesn’t matter if they’re charging 5 bucks for 2 avocados… I’m going to buy them. I can’t just buy a 3 dollar pizza or spend a week eating noodles for $0.58 a pack. My bill is running about $120 per week just for fruits, nuts and veggies. The salmon filet is 8 bucks, and the trout filet is 4 dollars, so I’d like to limit them, but they are a really big, delicious help.

Here is my grocery list for week 2:

Raw Almonds – 0.245 kg

Raw Cashews – 0.530 kg

Herbal Tea – 50 bags

sun-dried Tomatoes – 0.135 kg

Green Zucchini – 5 (small/medium, total of 1.234 kg)

English Cucumber – 3 (long ones)

Avocado – 7

Cantaloupe – 1

Strawberries – 1 lb

Green Leaf Lettuce – 1 head

Spinach – 2 bunches

Cilantro – 1 bunch

Kale – 1 bunch (quite small)

Cauliflower – 0.835 kg

Pineapple – 1

Roma Tomatoes – 6

Regular Tomatoes – 3

Lime – 2

Lemon – 5

Red Peppers – 5

Bananas – 11

Sweet Onion – 1

I still have some items in my fridge from last week and some of the items from the grocery list will go into next week as well.
