Easy Way to Cut Your Food Bill by at Least 30%
by Frederic Patenaude
Let's face it, eating a healthy diet with
lots and lots of fruits and vegetables
DOES cost more money than living on
rice, beans and potatoes. And with the
higher cost of organic food, and the
huge quantities of fruits and vegetables
that are necessary to eat in order to
be well nourished on a raw food diet,
it's no wonder that many people find
this diet a little expensive.
However, when we keep things in perspective,
eating a raw food diet ends up being
no more expensive than eating a "good"
diet that features eating out, drinking
good wine and buying delicacies and
special ingredients. However, eating
raw is generally not a cheap diet unless
you live in a tropical country where
lots of fruits and vegetables are available
at very low cost.
The good news is that you can dramatically
cut down on your food bills by following
the simple tips I'm going to share in
How to Get Organic Food for Less
We all know that eating more organic
food is one of the best things we can
do to limit our exposure to pesticides
and help the environment. However, due
to the cost of organic fruits and vegetables,
many people cannot afford to eat organic.
But what if I told you that you can
get organic food at the *same* price
that your health food store gets it
at, or less!
The secret to spending less on food
and at the same time have access to
higher-quality food is to buy in larger
quantities and cut the middleman.
By doing this you will save *at least*
30% on your food bill, if not more.
When you eat a mostly or completely
raw food diet, you can no longer buy
foods the way most people do, which
is to go to a store and buy a few apples
or bananas at a time. You have to stop
doing that and buy food by the case.
First of all, you won't waste any food
since you WILL go through a case of
food. Raw-food families will tell you
they easily go through cases of food
in no time, and even single people like
me go through cases of food easily.
Second, it's a lot cheaper to buy by
the case. When I buy organic bananas
by the case, I get the *same* price
for these bananas that the health food
stores get, which is the lowest price
possible. So instead of paying $1.30
a pound for organic bananas, I pay around
65 cents a pound.
Everything is cheaper by the box, and
another advantage is that you'll have
plenty of food. One of the main reasons
why people fail on a raw food diet is
that they don't have *enough* food.
They live on a starvation diet, or worse,
they run out of food completely and
end up eating junk!
In order to buy food by the case, you
will have to find a distributor or a
food co-op. Distributors or food co-ops
will be different in each city, but
generally, the process is the same.
You will likely have to drive to a larger
town in order to get food directly from
distributors, but as I have found, by
buying larger quantities you won't be
wasting time going back and forth to
the store several times a week.
I live in a small town and about once
a week or less, I drive to the city
in order to renew my supply of food.
In the next part of this article,
I will show you exactly where to go
in order to find distributors for organic
food and get better food while at the
same time saving at least 30% on your
