How To Eat #Vegan On A Budget (Organic, Plant-Based, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Raw Living Foods)

I went out to the store this evening and came back home with quite the haul.

I was able to find lots of high-quality, nutrient-dense, vegan foods. All for a total of about $70. This will last me probably 4 days… so at less than $20/day this is pretty high quality stuff. Check out the video to see some of the products I bought (including NuttZo ButterMary’s Gone Crackers Jalapeno, Raw (Superfood) Trail Mix, and Go Raw Granola Bars):

I hope you enjoyed this video. Please let me know what you think.

Keep Healthy!

Here’s an idea…

Save the parts from greens that you might otherwise discard, get yourself a Green Star Juicer and make juice!

It’s cheaper than buying a $10 bottle of juice; that’s for sure! :D

About Green Star Juicer:

Independent laboratory tests confirm that the Green Star‘s Twin Gear Press extracts a substantially higher quantity of minerals than “leading” juicers. Concentrations of essential minerals, like calcium, iron, and zinc are 50%-200% higher in juice from the Green Star than from other name brands juicers. Now, your commitment to drinking raw juice can really begin to pay off!

MELVIN’S JUICE BOX.

Seriously, the green juice has SO MUCH CHARD, KALE, and COLLARD GREENS..

It was the deepest, darkest (bitter, health-promoting) green juice I’ve ever had.. They call it the “Green Light”!

(The $9 GREEN LIGHT has Kale, celery, collard greens, green chard, parsley, lemon, ginger… You can’t do better! So authentic.)

Island style, island flavor, island vibe!! Come for a true Caribbean experience in the heart of Manhattan and try for yourself.

***ONE LOVE***

Juice Press, NYC

Juice Press was – by far – my favorite raw juice bar while visiting New York this time. I visited 3 different locations of Juice Press.
I loved the fresh pineapple, ginger smoothie with homemade almond milk (#14 I think). All the superfood smoothies seemed good.

Also so awesome: the raw chocolate truffles, dusted in cacao. Delicious!

Now that I have gotten the raw food and smoothies out of the way… On to the real reason why I LOVE Juice Press: raw juice. Their commitment to the highest quality raw Green Juice is outstanding. Seriously I must have had 10 of these over the course of my brief stint in NYC. All the green juices tasted delicious, like elixirs of heaven.

My favorite is “Gravity” with e3live and aloe, lemon, kale, cucumber, celery.
I tried several other green juices too, and they were all excellent. There are multiple options for low-glycemic green juice. (Many other juice bars only have one or two (green) juices which do not contain high-sugar fruits such as apple or pear…)

Seriously, I LOVE Juice Press.
Check them out in New York City.

Magic Mix Juicery, NYC

Magic Mix Juicery is located in the Financial District of New York City. They serve raw foods, superfood smoothies, and fresh organic cold-pressed juices.

I love their selection of salads and their use of superfoods across the board (like in smoothies and raw desserts).

The space is very clean. The design is white. The products are colorful and original. I enjoyed my experience there very much.
