I'm right down the middle. I love them both equally.

Are You a Veggie Head or Just Plain Fruity?
Nutrition News Flash
-- By Becky Hand, Licensed & Registered Dietitian



A recent study randomly selected 508 adults and categorized each of them as either a vegetable lover or fruit lover by using a cross-classification technique, based on their preference ratings for fruits and vegetables and by each participant’s self-perceptions. Vegetable lovers differed from fruit lovers in both their cooking habits and their food preferences as shown by the following chart:

Cooking Habit or Preference Veggie Lovers Fruit Lovers
Have guests over for dinner More frequently Less frequently
Claim to cook nutritious meals More frequently Less frequently
Make new recipes they have
never made before More frequently Less frequently
Eat spicy food More frequently Less frequently
Drink wine with dinner More frequently Less frequently
Eat dessert after dinner Less frequently More frequently
So where do you fall? Are you the veggie or fruit lover? By focusing your efforts on your food preferences and cooking desires you can easily meet your nutrition needs and your "5 A Day" quota.
