    I am on a low budget.

    Nuts cost heaps, although sunflower, pumpkin seeds and lentils are fine. I've stopped eating junkfood and started eating healthy already although removing wholegrains and every kind of sugar sucks. That would include peanut butter, cheese, milk, canned fruit and veg, processed is bad since everything processes has sugar added, and while it would be easy to speculate its natural sugar, processed just implies what it says. Raw is pretty much the only way for me at the moment. My extra new vegetable diet is $20 more on top of my normal $40 weekly grocery bill. ha I'm practically paying my rent $300 pw with income that is flaky at best, then affordability tends to fall for me.

    But I love to see the different variety out there.

    Well, yeah, eating raw or vegan is FUCKING EXPENSIVE if you do it right. But that's not the same thing as just eating a healthy, balanced omnivorous diet.

    I eat more sunflower seeds than nuts, but if you buy nuts in smaller single serving packages they're not that expensive at all.

    Also - I don't know what you're talking about when you say all peanut butter and canned fruit or veg has sugar. That's totally false.

    I didn't say all, I said anything processed has a question mark for me. And it may be a false assumption on my part, sorry about that, I'll have to look into it more. I could be mixing it up with why I can't eat peanuts on a candida diet, hahah and I thought my hypoglycemia diet was sweet!

    Do Mangosteens taste like mangoes? Looks a bit like Lychees.
    i live in the tropics, so they're easily found here.
    doesn't taste anything like mangoes
    tastes like peaches and strawberries with a hint of vanilla.
    they're wonderful.

    i also find eating healthier costs more, especially for organic
    and fresh foods. something as simple as apples, organic fuji
    apple can cost triple the price.

    especially being on a raw food diet, the foods i consume are
    so much higher priced. making a raw-cheesecake (nuts, dates,
    figs) is more expensive that cream cheese, processed sugar
    and flour.

    Grumichama berries tropical equivalent of cherries.
    the top one, we call star fruit, because, well. it looks like a star.

    jackfruits have a lovely fatty texture.

    mmm healthy berries. makes me hungry.

    I tried one once when I saw it in the "exotic" section of the supermarket, I remember it having a slight strawberry flavour more than anything. I suspect they're one of these fruits that's mostly confined to the tropics though; I haven't seen them very often, and I'm not sure they travel well.

    I wouldn't bother if I were you... I mean, they're quite decorative, but they don't really taste of much, just a sweetish, slightly sharp flavour with no real distinguishing characteristics, and a rather fibrous texture on the outside. Best thing to do is cut into cross-sections and put them on top of things to make them look pretty

    oooh .... I see. Yeah I buy peanut butter that contains no sugar a lot, and there usually isn't ever sugar in canned or frozen vegetables, and as far as fruit goes you can get it without sugar now, they even put Splenda in fruit cocktail now...though you probably don't do Splenda if you avoid processed.

    Are you allergic to peanuts? What's a candida diet?

    Candida is a yeast infection. Nah its because its got mold and even the tiniest bit of sugar isn't good apparently or something, just as well I'm not gluten intolerant like my mother or lactose intolerant like my brother.
