Well.. no, actually it isn't..
When I look at our monthly accounting stats, it's clear just how little we spend on groceries in comparison to most people..
After all, living the way we do, I'd say that pretty much all of our grocery money is spent on fruit alone.. We don't buy other household products.. no soaps, conditioners, powders, creams or detergents.. no other vices like resteraunts, coffees, sugar, ice creams, lollies, sweets, beers, wines, cigarettes or take-aways..
And all in all, we spend on average, about $16 a day on fruit for the 2 of us.. (that's $8 a day each to feed us.. that's just 8 Australian dollars a day!!)..
OK, I'm aware that not everyone has as much choice and as cheap a fruit as we do, but when you consider what we save also on not cooking our food or having to clean greasy pots and pans and dishes with detergents.. saving on water,. gas and eletricity bills too, i'd reckon that eating just fruit is about as economical as it can get..
If more people were fruitarian, and the world was running more harmoniously, then I picture clearly that fruit production would be the best economical choice for growers too.. Saving them vast amounts on fuel each year, and yielding them far more per square meter than any annual crop could ever hope to do..
Think about it..
