Too expensive

Reader's Comment: I`ve done a rough calculation on your meal plan and it came out to close to $25 ($175 per week) using my current grocery store prices. That`s for one person a day.

Currently, I`m feeding an entire family of four for less than $100 a week on a HEALTHY vegan diet (we don`t eat junk or processed food).

I find that for most people, a raw food diet just isn`t affordable for a family, which is unfortunate :(

Andrew's Answer:

I certainly was not using the cheapest variety of fruits in my selections. If you want to eat cheaply, you can easily due so using bananas, dates, in season citrus, etc.

When I was college and needed to be frugal, I followed this diet and managed it for $40-$60 a week eating 2,500 to 3,500 calories on most days.

Supermarkets murder you on produce prices. If you want reasonable prices, go to a wholesaler and buy in bulk.

Read how to get much better prices on produce here.

Finally, I'm a fairly tall (5'11), very physically active male. The average person probably wouldn't eat as much as me on a raw food diet.
