003 - A typical grocery list for a Raw Food shopper

As most of us do on a regular basis, I shop for groceries but from time to time I find that there are items I need for my raw food meals that I cannot get at my local grocery store. This usually ends in me going to the health food store or farmers market in my area. Then there are those items that are not in my area and must be ordered. This is where the expenses begin to occur. Everything is expensive these days and when you try to eat healthier or in a manner that is not "common" to your area, the expenses are greater. I believe this has to do with the cost of bringing those items into an area where there aren't many people purchasing it. Whatever the reason, I always find myself on the "money intensive" end of remaining stable within my raw food lifestyle.

Some of my typical items are:

  • Sea salt
  • Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • RAW Tahini
  • Almonds
  • Dates
  • Bananas
  • Walnuts
  • Cashews
  • Pine nuts
  • Fresh Celery
  • Fresh Carrots
  • Fresh curly Kale
  • Fresh baby spinach
  • Onions
  • Fresh Squash
  • Fresh Tomato's
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Fresh Tai Coconut
  • Avocado
  • Pecans
  • Raw Agave
  • Purified water

These are just a few of the food items that are common to my grocery list. I also have herbs and various seasonings that I purchase but they don't run out as often so I can afford to spend a bit more on those. I would like to see a future where food items from all over the world are available within minutes. Of course, in order for this to become reality, we would definitely have to move civilization into the more technologically advance era of travel and communication. I am talking....

"Beam me up Scotty" type stuff...hahahah



  1. Hey Ang-
    Thanks for your blog comment. The only rough thing about blogger is that there is not spot to reply to someone else's comment, you just have to post a new comment and hope they come back and see it. So... yes, 80/10/10 is an interesting journey. I may ultimatley like salt too much to ever stay on it longterm, but my body feels great! Your list of shopping items can definitely get expensive. Part of the territory, I suppose. better quality=more money! hopefully the crap will cost more one day so people will buy less of it! Ha ha luv ya...
