Poll: Are You a Fruit Person or Veggie Person?

Are You a Fruit Person or Veggie Person?

Food psychologist Dr. Brian Wansink has recently made the comparison between fruit lovers and veggie lovers to come up with these findings:

Compared to the average person, vegetable lovers:

  • Like to try new recipes and entertain at home
  • Enjoy spicy foods
  • Think you cook nutritiously
  • Enjoy an occasional glass of wine

Compared to the average person, fruit lovers:

  • Often eat dessert with dinner
  • Spend little time cooking
  • Avoid new recipes and entertaining
  • Enjoy an occasional candy bar

So what about you, are you a fruit person or a veggie person? And do the good doctor's findings resonate with you?

Thanks to user wackdoodle for the tip!

I thought fruit at first, but after reading these descriptions, I guess I'm more of a veggie person.

I kind of agree with Hipmom, it is silly to try and put everyone into categories. I am definitely both, mostly veggie but still fruit also. I eat both fruits and veggies in large amounts, love to cook and entertain at home, love spicy foods and definitely think I cook healthy but I also love dessert and definitely enjoy the occasional candy bar!

I am DEFINITELY a veggie person...but I don't cook or try too many recipes! Other than Jamba Juice, I have to force myself to eat fruit!

Funny, I eat more veggies than I do fruits, but I have the characteristics of a "fruit" person. This is kinda silly to seems more like a way of categorizing people according to if they prefer sweet vs. savory.

oddly enough i am more willing to take chances eating veggies than fruit. i am very selective with which fruit i like

Veggie all the way!
I am both. I have some veggie lover and fruit lover characteristics. Me, personally, I think I am a fruit person more than anything. I am picky when it comes to veggies, I only really love broccoli, carrots, and potatoes, whereas with fruit, I'll pretty much eat anything. Oranges and Red Delicious apples are my two favs.

i used to be a veggie person until this winter when i decided to lose some weight and eat more fruit. now i love fruit, but still have the characteristics of a veggie person. i enjoy more savory foods, so fruit is like a desert to me.
