    So i've made the decision to try out a Raw vegan lifestyle and am now transitioning. I am under no illusion that this way of eating can be as expensive or as cheap as i want it but as a uni student, low costs are a way of life . Has anyone got any suggestions on how i can source the sheer quantity of fruit? I have no car so i'm unable to go to the nearest wholesale market. Any tips on how to shop will be greatly appreciated 😆

    Not at all 😊 its the eating of uncooked and unprocessed food. I am a vegan because of ethical reasons but feel like this change will be good for optimal health.

    Maybe go to supermarkets in the evening as they reduce down all their fruit and veg that's going to go off that day - you can pick up some great bargains that way. It's also worth going to your local market, as fruit is often cheaper there. Definitely don't buy pre-prepared fruit.

    Some fruit is far more expensive than others - for example apples, pineapples, etc. are often pretty cheap but strawberries and raspberries are expensive.
