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.
@wolfie Oooh, that is interesting. I will miss grapes, bananas and avocados but life without cauliflower? Never!
re: food poll
@Juju I'm gonna be eating a lot of beets, sweet potatoes and rhubarb to get my sweet fix!
@Juju I would absolutely have chosen fruit, but then you went and put potatoes under "vegetables", and I can't without potatoes
@Juju I like fruits but veg is so much part of my normal meals
like, how versatile is a cabbage?!
@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.
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.
@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.
@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...
@wolfie No man was ever dissuaded from having an opinion about a topic by not knowing anything about the topic.
@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.
@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?
@alexq Nope! But also: sauce hollandaise is a great substitute for tomato sauce on pizza :D
@Juju Tomatoes are fruits?! That makes this an impossible choice. If they were vegetables it would be easy.
@toni "The tomato is the edible berry of the plant Solanum lycopersicum, commonly known as a tomato plant." IT'S A BERRY!
@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.
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?
