food poll 

If you had to choose to only eat fruits OR vegetables for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
For the purpose of this: tomatoes are fruits, mushrooms, beans and potatoes are vegetables.

food poll 

Garlic/onions are herbs and available for everyone.

Also boost my poll, I NEED TO KNOW!

food, puzzles 

The broccoli, the cauliflower and the one that looks like their baby are done. Now on to the papaya.

food poll 

@Juju tomatoes being fruits totally swung this to fruits for me

food poll 

@wolfie Oooh, that is interesting. I will miss grapes, bananas and avocados but life without cauliflower? Never!

food poll 

@Juju

Garlic and onions are one of the major food groups!

@Juju it's got kohlrabi in it. That's how you know it's German!

food poll 

@Juju Got to go with that kartoffel

re: food poll 

@Juju I'm gonna be eating a lot of beets, sweet potatoes and rhubarb to get my sweet fix!:murdercat:

food poll 

@Juju I would absolutely have chosen fruit, but then you went and put potatoes under "vegetables", and I can't without potatoes

food poll 

@Anke @Juju This would've been a very easy choice for fruit if i weren't for mushrooms and beans.

food poll 

@anke @Juju Same, though having to choose between tomatoes and potatoes made it harder!

food poll 

@Juju

The tomatoes make it a tougher choice than it would otherwise be ...

food poll 

@Juju I like fruits but veg is so much part of my normal meals

like, how versatile is a cabbage?!

food poll 

@verity This! Also a life without beans? Worthless!

food poll 

@Juju i can'tl ive withoput mushrooms or onions so definitely veggies

food poll 

@Juju Vegetables are far more diverse. Oranges are one of my favorite snacks, and it will be hard to be without them. Tomatoes? No tomato sauces? Horrifying.
But no more potatoes? They're one of the most commonly used foods over here. No beans, peas, soy and such would make decreasing meat consumption damn near impossible. I adore mushrooms. And if mushrooms are somehow counted into vegetables, then well, so are grains, and uh ... no bread or pasta or cookies or cake or .... yeah, I think I can sacrifice a few fruits to keep all that stuff.

food poll 

@Juju
To be correct, mushrooms are neither fruits nor vegetables. They're not even plants. So if it's really about "only", then you had to leave mushrooms completely out.
What about Paprika, Chili, Cucumber, Pumpkins, Nuts, etc. and all sorts of grain? They're all "more" fruits than vegetables (from biological view).
That poll should have a better definition first.

food poll 

@Easydor How about you stop being a pedantic reply guy instead?
I said "for the purpose of this". This is not a scientific poll, this is just for fun.

@Juju But you're having fun wrong! We can't have that! *stomps manly foot*

@tercean I do not get the impulse that guy apparently had. Like, this is social media, I'm not doing a professional study, I just want to know if people prefer bananas or eggplants.

@Juju probably just a "look at how smart I am!" moment.
Surely that impresses women, doesn't it?

I'd like to say he'll learn, but let's be honest here...

food poll 

@Juju vegetable isn't a botanical or biological term ffs mushrooms are totally vegetables

food poll 

@wolfie No man was ever dissuaded from having an opinion about a topic by not knowing anything about the topic.

re: food poll 

@Juju you work with words all day for fuck's sake! Just straight up disrespect here.

food poll 

@Juju could mansplainers just not, ffs.

food poll 

@Juju I'm going to take the hard stance here that all fruits can be fired into the sun. Nothing will dissuade me. This is the hill I've chosen to die on for some reason.

re: food poll 

@Juju Am gonna miss apples, but vegetables. Way more versatile.

food poll 

@Juju can't live without potatoes but a pizza without tomatoes is so sad looking 😢

Can I use my 'bi' card and don't choose?

food poll 

@alexq Nope! But also: sauce hollandaise is a great substitute for tomato sauce on pizza :D

food poll 

@Juju I will take your word for it then ^^

food poll 

@Juju @alexq

I also use a garlic béchamel on pizza sometimes, which works pretty well.

food poll 

@Juju Tomatoes are fruits?! That makes this an impossible choice. If they were vegetables it would be easy.

food poll 

@toni "The tomato is the edible berry of the plant Solanum lycopersicum, commonly known as a tomato plant." IT'S A BERRY!

food poll 

@Juju I *know*, but it’s part of so many of my go-to vegetable dishes. I decided for vegetables anyway, pizza can be replaced by flammkuchen if I can’t have tomato sauce.

food poll 

@Juju

How are vegetables winning this?

Are you considering weed to be a vegetable? That's the only thing that makes sense.

Like, y'all've had like... a raspberry?

food poll 

@PostMasterGeneral Berries aren't that good, Justin.
Have you had zucchini, dude?

food poll 

@Juju

Yeah, it's fine. Mushy.

What about grapes? I know you love a grape.

food poll 

@PostMasterGeneral I do love a grape and I LOVE bananas but I love mushrooms more!

food poll 

@Juju

Claiming Avacados for the fruit faction is a major win though.

food poll 

@PostMasterGeneral That's genuinely the one thing I'm very miffed about.

food poll 

@MmeLibertine @Juju

Jules and I worked out a few trades.

I get regular potatoes, onions and tomatoes for the Fruit Faction, and she gets sweet potatoes, and green grapes for the Vegetable Coalition.

Also she's given me access to all peppers with a scoville rating of jalapeño or higher.

food poll 

@MmeLibertine @Juju

Hell yeah!

With the Herb and Garlic Accords ratified, I've secured everything I need to make Guacamole, which is arguably, the greatest food on earth.

food poll 

@PostMasterGeneral @Juju faved this for the eloquent wording, but...

guacamole is gross :P
