    Like Market on the Move?

    St Gabriel's church on Cave Creek Road has that. $10 bucks for a 60 pound box of veggies from local Farmer's Markets. They call it a "food rescue" and it's a great deal.

    No oatmeal mentioned on this thread for cholesterol? I've been eating it for years and my numbers are perfect. There were a couple of books on it years ago. I swear by it. My doctor is happy. I'm happy. :)

    You can get a giant bag of organic Kale at Costco for like $3.

    Exactly. :) I'll see if I can find out the name of the one my friend participates in, but it's basically the same deal. I think a lot of the food goes to homeless shelters or something, too.

    Sixty pounds of vegetables is huge. But if you can juice them, it would probably be worth it.

    Kale is very cheap and is the best leafy green out there. I bought two bundles for $1.30 thats two weeks worth of shakes.

    Yep, that's the movie. It was definitely interesting. I can't attest the veracity of his opinion, though, so I'm less inclined to approve of it.

    But it did make sense to me, and I had juiced a lot in the past. I love vegetables and I love tart fruit, though. My dad hates it, but he hates sweet/tart things and only eats vegetables he can heavily salt. (I hate salty anything).

    I just buy at Costco produce. Much more than I can eat myself. Always require help.

    I just read the story below about a guy who went vegan for 60 days and it reminded me of this thread.

    http://vegnews.com/articles/page.do?pageId=5142&catId=8

    At the end of the 60 days, the local talent lost 31 pounds, his overall cholesterol dropped from 128 to 87, his LDL cholesterol went from 70 to 47, and his triglycerides plummeted from 151 to 69. “My doctor said he’d never seen anything like it,” Peterson reports. “There’s no way I’m turning back.”

    There are a lot of stories like this...might want to look into it. :)

    its so hard for me to go vegan, I have removed dairy and can easily cut red meat and pork but chicken and fish would be too hard.

    At least it's the better-for-you stuff that you can't do without. I can't imagine life without bacon and steak.

    I love bacon but I can do without it, my biggest problem is when I get drunk and want that late night burger or tacos lol

    Did you ever find out the name of that co-op? Thinking of looking into this when I get back to Phoenix.

    My Nutribullet recipe:

    Pineapple, kale, banana, parsley, coconut milk (non-flavored), chia seeds (or other booster).

    Tastes like cucumber melon. The parsley is key to cutting the bitterness of the kale.

    Homegoods has a food section. Sells ground golden flax seeds. Really cheap.

    I just joined a vegetable delivery service last week that is very similar.

    There is a veganic farm down in Willcox and they deliver fresh veg to certain points throughout the state like Whole Foods and some healthy restaurants. The small box is $22 a week and you can have them pack you a box of their choosing or you can even choose the products you want (like more kale, fewer carrots, for example). I'm really enjoying it so far. :)
