Are you on the fence about going totally raw? That’s okay! Fresh food is good for everyone, not just vegans, vegetarians, and raw food enthusiasts. Something as simple as the addition of a few more servings of raw fruits and veggies to your diet can deliver huge benefits to your health, whether or not you’re a full-time raw foodie. And anytime you substitute something natural for something processed, you’re doing your body a favor.
Fresh food is naturally delicious and wonderfully nutritious, but what about the cost? While it’s true that some fresh-from-the-farm fruits and veggies are expensive, I’ve got some easy tips that will help you find bargains in the produce aisle this fall. I’m going to show you how to get the most for your food money so that you can eat better without breaking the bank.
One question that comes up frequently when I’m giving lectures and demonstrations is “How can I get my family to eat raw food.” People are shocked when I tell them, “They already are!” Fresh fruit, nuts, green salads, smoothies, and uncooked soups like my raw Gazpacho are all raw foods that your family probably already eats and enjoys.

This month, I’ve been focusing on budget-friendly raw food ingredients that you can use to make delicious and surprisingly low-cost dishes. In this post, I’m going to talk about zucchini, one of October’s most plentiful harvests. This mild-tasting veggie is a great stand-alone side dish, an excellent addition to salads, and a wonderful crudité. I especially like to use it in my raw Creamy Zucchini soup.
