Default Fruits or Vegetables; choose one for the rest of your life.

My initial thought was Fruits, no doubt. But then I started thinking about all the Veggies I cook/eat in foods...

Fruits:

Apples
Oranges
Bananas
Grapes
Avocado
Pineapple
Raspberries
Raisins
Tomatoes
Strawberries
Apricots
Peaches
Plums
Cherries
Kiwi
Guava
Watermelon


Vegetables:

Broccoli
Spinach
Lettuce
Onions
Carrots
Celery
Tomatoes
Potatoes
Peppers
Cabbage
Cucumbers

People should keep in mind all the treats (pies, jelly filled stuff) and juices that have fruit.

Damn, this is a TOUGH question. Intuition tells me to go with the greens, but I just can't imagine a life without avocados (? - not sure what's been made of the herb-fruit debates), coconuts, mangos, bananas (? - same as avocados), apples, oranges, and pineapples, plus potatoes and corn (although I've been avoiding corn) supposedly aren't vegetables either. However, if potatoes are in (both regular and sweet), I might be able to tolerate going fruit-free.

Vegetables, and it ain't close.

Only fruit I really like is banana, everything else is OK.

Vegetables- I dig spinach, lettuce, carrots and potatoes.

Default Re: Fruits or Vegetables; choose one for the rest of your life.

I definitely think vegetables is the winner here.

Potatoes = french fries and chips. That's a big deal right there. Then there's tofu. Moreover, Beans are also vegetable. Along with lots of spices like garlic and onion. Oh and seaweed. Those things alone will make me choose vegetable over fruit.

And they can make meat replacement from vegetables. Not as good as real one but not as bad as some make it either.

Yeah man, all these findings on fructose and its ability to wreak havoc on one's health really make this a tough one for me. An unusual case of eating for health versus eating for pleasure.

You can somehow replace positive nutrients from fruit with other foods, while nutrients from vegetables are almost irreplaceable.

any plant part which comes from a flower (i.e., has seeds) is a fruit.

so tomatoes, avocados, bananas (they do have seeds) and corn are all fruit. of course you might also call tomatoes 'veggies' because they're known in common parlance as veggies, but technically they're fruits. (i learned this in botany and nutrition classes, btw)

.

.

myself, veggies easy. i'm not into sugary stuff and i don't digest fruit that well, anyway.

now i'm trying to eat my colors! for full vegetable benefit.

Default Re: Fruits or Vegetables; choose one for the rest of your life.

had the same initial reaction and the same follow-up conclusion. veggies would just be way harder to replace. at least you could still eat some synthetically flavoured fruity shit to get at least some of what the juicy goodness of fruits have to offer, but like everybody else is saying, veg is just a staple if you ever plan to cook in your life. potatoes were the dealbreaker for me.
