I heard food is quite expensive there, due to the large amounts of importing you guys have to do?

well if you eat the s.a.d diet then yes it is very expensive $8 for a gallon of milk $7 for a dozen eggs but being a raw vegan it is really not bad if you hit up the farmers markets. my fiance and i can get all our local organic produce and fruit for the week for about $45 dollars and we go through a ton of fruit and veggies cuz i make us green juice everyday in the morning.. so it really works out in our favor plus we grow alot of our food here year round cuz the weather is always 75-85 degrees year round. it really is paradise for a raw vegan or a vegan cuz there is so much food just growing all around you. i have fresh coconut water everyday and pineapples and oranges and grapefruits and limes and lemons and apples. thats just what grows in my back yard. but it is pricy to live here.gas is 4.50 a gallon and rent is around $1000 for an average place. but is is f***in awesome to live here i must admit.
life is what you make it.

Welcome to the forum!

Looking forward to hearing more from you and looking forward to having you in our Summer Shape-Up Challenge, similar to our New You for the New Year Challenge going on now.

I've been to Hawaii twice but never to Maui. Perhaps next time! My friend was just there and loved it, of course!

All the very best! Again, welcome aboard.

-Robert
