Oh wow, you're in Jamaica? Pineapple heaven! I'm a big girl and a meal for me can consist of four oranges or apples. Two bananas and I'm full. So think maybe in terms of how much volume you eat. If you typically fill up a particular plate or bowl for a meal, how much fruit or veggies would it hold? Then multiply by how often you think you'll eat. Raw food doesn't hold me as long as conventional does, so think in terms of eating more often as well. After the first week or so you'll get a feel for what you need. If you have access to raw nuts and seeds, that might help as well.
I remember seeing a television show about Jamaica and a musician who is also Rastafarian was interviewed - he said many are raw vegan. I remember him making smoothies from some fruit that was indigenous to Jamaica, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. Maybe if you ask around you can find some raw food resources in Jamaica? I would be very interested to hear about your experience. I've been to Jamaica twice and I love the place and the people.

You can also seek out local varieties of avocado and mango. When I lived in on Margarita Island (a Caribbean Island off the coast of Venezuela) I discovered that they grew wild, and while they looked different than what I was accustomed to, they were quite cheap and very yummy.
If you are into sprouting, you should be able to find hard winter wheat at your local baker supply store, as well as thinks like mung bean seeds.
And coconuts! These are plentiful in the islands and quite inexpensive. I used to eat one a day...Great with bananas and mango.

I like to eat as large a variety of raw foods as I can. The foods I eat change with the seasons. Right now there are plenty of apples, oranges, pomes, grapes, young coconuts and pineapples available plus whatever else I can find. I eat mostly one food meals so I just keep plenty of fresh raw foods on hand and I'm good to go.
