I read an article called 7 things a 7-year-old could convince congress are vegetables. Congress has already declared that the tomato sauce on Pizza is a vegetable. So here’s the gist of the article:
CHOCOLATE: comes from a bean, so it must be a vegetable. (And so’s my morning cup of joe!)
POPCORN: Well, it does come from corn...
MAPLE SYRUP: Comes from a tree with leaves, so this is basically a green salad!
PICKLE DORITOS: 2 vegetables: cucumbers & corn!
KETCHUP: Okay, tomatoes. And Sugar (high fructose corn syrup) from CORN!
ONION RINGS: 3 vegetables if you have fries and ketchup with it.
CANDY CORN: & candy pumpkins. A good mix of orange, yellow, white & green vegetables.
Get your kids or grandkids to come up with more!
