Fruits and Vegetables

Brad:  So I’ve been thinking about cutting down on my fruit consumption.

Me:  Probably not a bad idea.  I’ve read that we should be treating sweet fruit more as a desert then a snack that you munch throughout the day

Brad: So I guess when they said “Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day”, they were really thinking  just vegetables.

Me:  My guess would be that they were probably thinking of the wider definition of “fruit”.  You know tomatoes, peppers, zucchinis and the like.

Brad: Of course.  It’s funny how we’ve decided that “fruit” consists of only the sugary sweet ones and vegetables are everything else.
