A Raw Vegan Rant

Rant 3 – WHY THE RIDICULOUS MARK UP

The one thing I hate most about being a raw vegan is that I can never just walk out of the door in the morning.

There are always several calculations to be made:  When did I last eat, when am I likely to need to eat again, where will I be, and will there be access to food I can eat

Often to avoid this logistical quagmire I carry around a great big canvas bag full of food.

but sometimes I don’t want to carry around food because

a) It’s an ugly bag and it rarely complements my outfit.

b) It’s heavy.  2500-3000 calories in raw vegetables and fruit will kill your shoulder.

And c) I sometimes simply resent  that I’m a minority in society and my needs aren’t catered for.

 

But I regret every bag-less stance I’ve taken:  my wallet empties and my belly doesn’t get full.

Here are some raw-food-on-the-go-price shockers:

I contend that the best value food on the go is from Sainbury’s; 800g of pineapples for £3.
