Fruit or Vegetable
Do you have a favorite vegetable?
It’s a tough call for me but I have a weakness for tomatoes
I know tomatoes are technically a fruit because they have seeds but no one I know in practical terms classifies tomatoes as fruit.
Cucumbers, squash, green beans and walnuts are all fruits technically, too, because they also have seeds.
I eat one tomato every day.
An apple A tomato a day keeps the doctor away.
Sometimes I eat them in an edamame and tomato salad
Sometimes sprinkled with stevia powder
I get my stevia from iHerb and you can use code AVE630 to save $5 on stevia, nooch, supplements, probiotics, bulk spices and more
Sometime I just dip my tomatoes in homemade vegan slaw dressing
And sometimes I eat them plain.
And sometimes I admire them at the farmers market
Below is what I call fruit
And these are all faves of mine
And please dip these…
And please tell me I’m not crazy for thinking of these as a vegetable.
From my last post, Winning Combo, I loved hearing your fave combos.
Chocolate + PB was pretty popular. Surprise surprise.
If you still have chocolate + PB on the brain, maybe a homemade PB Cup?
Vegan, no-bake, microwave-friendly and takes about 5 minutes to make
1. What’s your favorite vegetable?
Hard for me to pick but cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts are all faves. Even if they are a little too
terrific fiber-riffic at times for me.
Green beans, sugar snap peas, zucchini, you name it, I really do love my veggies.
As much as I joke about loving sugar, and I do, if I don’t have my daily allotment of veggies, I am not happy and feel out of balance!
I think I need to make this Apple Glazed Vegetable & Edamame Stir Fry after talking about all these veggies
2. Favorite Fruit?
I love almost all fruits but not a fan of canteloupe, honeydew, kiwi, durian, and am just so-so about both papaya and banana (banana in things but not so much just plain See This Post for Banana-Containing Recipes & Ways to Use Extra Banana)
I love orchard fruit (peaches, plums, pears, nectarines) and also grapes (frozen!) are winners. I love mango too! And berries of all kind and types.
Very few fruits I don’t like.
