I've been raw before, only for a maximum of 3 months, but I felt amazing. After struggling with bulimia for about 2 years, I'm trying to get back to that place.
Quick info: I'm a freshman in college. I don't have a lot of fridge space and I don't have a blender.
I'm going grocery shopping at Whole Foods tomorrow, what should I buy?
:) thanks in advance!

I'd personally go for fruit. Sweet and non-sweet, such as grapes, apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, bananas, maybe some dark green leafy salad greens, and make a hearty salad, and have lots of fruit to eat (it travels well).
You might also pick up some raw nuts and seeds, and throw them in your salad.

dont know prices at whole foods because ive only been there once and found i could beat there prices so havent returned . but without taking prices into account , but rather focusing on the no blender / little fridge space factors here goes :
- walnuts / almonds
- romaine / avacado / tomato as salad essentials
- extra virgin olive oil + raw apple cider vinegar for dressing (plus seasonings)
- sesame seeds sprinkled on a salad hearty it up
- a dark green such as kale / spinach / dandelion or brocoli to add to salads

Whatever I bought, I would do the Prep. work and store it in Plastic Bags. This would minimize the space that you are using and everyone at a glance would know that it is yours.
You can buy a Cheap Blender at Target. Yes I would keep the Nuts, Raisins, dehydrated foods tucked away somewhere, they are a great snack and don't take any Fridge room.
Have a RAWonderful Journey and an Outstanding Year in School...
