Hey I'm new to this whole raw vegan thing. When I go back to school on January 3rd, I'm getting a single apartment so I'll have my own kitchen and I'll be in full control of my diet. My University is in Michigan so I basically have no access to organic produce. I'm just wondering if getting inorganic produce at Meijer or Whole Foods is a bad idea. I know there are lots of preservatives but is it really that unhealthy? Can I still get the benefits of a raw vegan diet even though I don't have access to fresh organic produce?
You don't have to eat organic. An apple that's not organic is still better than a burger at McDonald's. Whether or not organic is worth the extra cost is a personal choice, but if the option isn't available there's no reason to fret.
